Bills host OL Wade Smith on free agent visit

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills have announced that the team hosted free agent guard/center Wade Smith on a free agent visit at One Bills Drive today.

Smith, who will turn 29 the week of the 2010 NFL Draft, is a seven-year veteran that was a 2003 third-round pick of Miami. Smith spent two seasons with the Dolphins before latching on with the Jets for another two years; he missed the 2005 season. Smith then joined the Chiefs in 2008, where he spent a year as a seven-game starter while Chan Gailey was coordinating Kansas City's offense. The 6'4", 296-pound Smith made the majority of his starts at right guard, though he can also play center.

Arrowhead Pride, SB Nation's Chiefs blog, has routinely praised Smith's versatility as an asset for their young, struggling offensive line. Buffalo lacks depth behind the interior line trio of Andy Levitre, Geoff Hangartner and Eric Wood, and Wood's leg injury makes veteran depth an even higher priority for the Bills.

Smith has also scheduled a free agent visit with the Houston Texans for this weekend.
