Bills Release Brad Smith

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

The Buffalo Bills have released former Jets wide receiver, kick returner and Wild Cat specialist Brad Smith on an injury settlement, CBS's Jason LaCanfora reports.

After two successful years with New York, mainly running the Wild Cat and returning kicks, Smith signed a four-year, $15 million deal with Buffalo in July of 2011. Smith had only 37 catches for a total of 392 yards and three receiving touchdowns in 30 games played with the Bills.

One could have made the case for the Jets to bring back Smith, had the team not signed WR/KR Josh Cribbs last month. Cribbs has assumed his role well, even making some plays out of the Wild Cat formation, including a 25-yard pass to Zach Sudfeld in last Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Smith has yet to appear in a game this season due to injury.
