At the trade deadline, the Eagles were rumored to be interested in acquiring Smith. Rather than giving up a pick, the Eagles now got him without giving anything up.
Smith has a connection with Eagles VP of Player Personnel Joe Douglas and AD of Player Personnel Andy Weidl. Both of them had a huge influence in drafting Smith with the Ravens.
Smith comes into this team and straight away gives them a deep threat. He is coming off of a pretty disappointing year, but now he is in an offense that fits him. The sky is the limit here, the Eagles could have a steal.
