The move announced Tuesday comes four days after Smith was released by Buffalo. The Eagles released wideout B.J. Cunningham to make room on the roster.
Analysis: A versatile player on offense, Smith is known for his ability to play receiver and quarterback in wildcat formations. He's averaged 25.7 yards on kickoff returns with four touchdowns during an eight-year career with the New York Jets and Bills. Smith has five TDs receiving, four rushing and one passing. Smith injured his ribs in the preseason and had been on Buffalo's injured reserve list.

The move, announced Friday, comes 10 weeks after Smith hurt his ribs in Buffalo's preseason-finale against Detroit.
Analysis: Smith was entering his eighth NFL season, and third with Buffalo. He's a versatile dual-threat on offense, known for his ability to play receiver and quarterback in wildcat formations. He became expendable because the Bills have essentially abandoned running the wildcat under new coach Doug Marrone.

Analysis: The person said Monday the new deal provides the Bills additional salary-cap space and also better reflects Smith's production over his first two seasons in Buffalo. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the move, and Smith did not reveal the reason behind it. The National Football Post first reported Smith had restructured his contract on Sunday.
