Wade Smith Leaves Buffalo Without Contract, Heads To Houston

Since the Kansas City Chiefs are obviously not big players in the first weekend of free agency what else are we to do except follow our unrestricted free agents.

Patrick Moran of the Buffalo Sports Daily tells me that Wade Smith has left Buffalo without a contract and will now travel to Houston for a visit with the Texans.

There were some reports floating around yesterday that Smith was set to visit with the Texans but we thought that would be nixed because a deal with the Bills seemed to be approaching.

Moran reports the Bills have had Smith "high on their radar" for several weeks now and even valued him more than Richie Incognito, another name attached to the Bills.

According to Moran, the Bills were looking at potentially bringing in Smith as a starter.

According to the source, the Bills see Smith as a player who would start at right guard if Eric Wood is not fully recovered from the severe broken leg he suffered last year.  If he ends up signing and doesn't start he'll be the top reserve at both guard spots and center.  At the very least, call him an upgrade over last year's player at the position, Seth McKinney.

If the Bills are having trouble signing Smith, then that may not be a good sign for things to come in Buffalo. Their offensive line is not very good and Smith has connections to head coach Chan Gailey (former Chiefs coordinator) and line coach Joe D'Alessandris (former Chiefs position coach).

There's been no indication that the Chiefs are or are not still players in all of this. Not much, if any, information has flowed out of One Arrowhead Drive so we won't know if they're interested in retaining him unless the ink hits the contract.
