Bryan Smith, a defensive end out of McNeese State drafted in the third round by the Eagles in 2008 has been released according to a tweet by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Smith, a 6-2, 245-pounder, was beaten out at the position by Jason Babin who had an excellent preseason campaign.
Smith didn't have ideal size to play end in a 4-3 defense. The Eagles were said to be looking to cut a deal with another team before releasing him and getting zippo in return. But aren't they all?
