Brad Smith is a fit, athletic, talented NFL player with the charisma and personal style of a fashion guru. When he’s not making big plays for the Philadelphia Eagles offense, the versatile superstar can be seen interning for Men’s Health Magazine and rubbing elbows with some of the top fashion experts in the world during New York Fashion Week. So how does an NFL superstar develop such a strong passion for fashion, a world so completely opposite from football? Well I had the opportunity to speak to Brad about fashion and football and what they mean to him. Check out the full interview below.
Chip Kelly likes his weapons, and reports suggest he’s found a weapon that can do a lot of things.
Jason LaCanfora is reporting that the Eagles will sign former Jets & Bills QB/WR/RB/KR Brad Smith pending a physical.
Free agent WR Brad Smith will sign with PHI today pending a physical according to a team source. Nice fit for Chip Kelly's surging team

Smith was recently released by the Bills, but got healthy enough to warrant a call from Chip Kelly and the Eagles. Smith of course would give the team depth at several key positions.
The best part of this play isn’t the catch.
No matter what the announcers are saying that was a horrible pass by Ryan Fitzpatrick and it should have been intercepted, but Smith unlike say Braylon Edwards in the Thursday Night Game fights through Antonio Cromartie to stop the interception.
Once he does that the ball pops up in the air, he locates it, catches it and finishes it off by dragging defenders in the end zone.
Great overall effort by Smith.
