Former Chiefs OL Wade Smith Appears Headed To The Bills

Reading the tea leaves it appears former Kansas City Chiefs OL Wade Smith will head to the Buffalo Bills.

Moments ago the Bills issued a release via text message that Smith would meet with the Buffalo media. However, indications are that a deal is not complete yet.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explains that this is an approach employed by several teams. The team meets wit the media before a deal is done and usually the player ends up signing a deal.

"But the approach carries with it some risk," Florio writes.  "After all, Smith could stroll to the podium today and say, "My visit here really sucked.  Can someone drive me to the airport?  Now?""

Smith reportedly had a visit set up with the Houston Texans, too.

As I said yesterday, the Bills are probably the best choice for Smith to get some playing time because their offensive line is in arguably the worst shape of all the 32 NFL teams. He should see some playing time there.

If he signs, Smith will be the first Chiefs unrestricted free agent off the market.
