Chip Kelly is churning the bottom of the roster again, and if Brad Smith has anything close to his prime-time talent still left in the tank, this could be a very nice move. Smith was released off Injured Reserve by the Buffalo Bills a few days ago. He had thought he might be picked up by the Jets, the team that drafted him out of Missouri in the 4th Round way back in 2006. But the Eagles made an offer and now, assuming he has passed his physical, he's a new roster asset for the Chippah as a return specialist, a wide receiver and a sometimes-quarterback...Smith has averaged 25.7 yards on kickoff returns with four touchdowns during an eight-year career with the New York Jets and Bills. He has five career TDs receiving, four rushing and one passing. Smith injured his ribs in the final preseason game. At 6-2 and 213, Smith brings some size as well as speed (4.46 time in the '40) to the depth at wideout, too. In fact, the guy he replaces on the roster is wide receiver B.J. Cunningham. His biggest contribution if he is physically ready to go may be in the return game. At age 29 and coming off a rib injury, it may be asking a lot--- and begs the question, if he still "has it", why did the Bills release him? The answer to that question may partly lie in a salay-cap issue, as Smith was making $1.5 million--- which may not sound like a lot, but it counted against the cap. Plus he'll be 30 years old on December 12th. We'll get more into the Brad Smith story and other Eagles news a bit later on an update. First, I wanted to bring you the results of Week 10 in the BriSuksEgg Fantasy Football League: Prime Beef (T-Boner) edged The Greatest PPW, 101- 98, despite 42 points for PPW from the Seattle D/ST... The Bad Jews Bears (Benny) stole one away from the Dirty Stinkin' Bums (ATV), 149-143, as Benny got 49 big points out of Drew Brees... The Severed Stones (Harry) got back in the win column, as they rolled away from the Amish Mafia (Dutch Rubb), 129- 77....Harry got 49 points from the Bengals D/ST... The Barking Spiders (Spiffo) pulled off an upset against the Bri Slappers (JB-Sage-Lion), 113- 94, as Spiffo got a nice 33 points from the Eagles D/ST... Filled With Rage (Jerky) put a pox on Bri's Gigantic Face (Broz), 138- 101, and 44 points from Peyton Manning didn't hurt Jerky's cause... And the Great White Mooks (JHOP) plucked the Palm Feathers (Palmy), 146- 107, despite an ironic 49 points collected by Palmy courtesy of The 49ers D/ST... ...and so THE STANDINGS: EAST DIVISION Severed Stones                     6  4  0 Bad Jews Bears                     6  4  0 Barking Spiders                     5  5  0 The Greatest PPW                 4  6  0 Bri's Gigantic Face                4  6  0 Palm Feathers                       3  7  0 WEST DIVISION Great White Mooks                8  2  0 Filled With Rage                    7  3  0 Bri Slappers                          6  4  0 Amish Mafia                         5  5  0 Prime Beef                           4  6  0 Dirty Stinkin' Bums               2  8  0 I'll be back a little later with some update stuff....
