ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Tight end Lee Smith has rejoined the Buffalo Bills after spending the past four seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
The Bills said Monday the 31-year-old Smith signed a three-year contract. He played his first four seasons with Buffalo, starting in 2011.
At 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, Smith has been mostly a blocker. He has just 56 catches for 392 yards and seven touchdowns — including three last season — in 107 games.
His signing is another step in Buffalo’s decision to retool its tight ends. Jason Croom is the only returning player at the position. The Bills signed free agent Tyler Kroft and drafted Dawson Knox and Tommy Sweeney.
