Ever since his career season back in 2009 (107 catches, 1,120 yards, seven touchdowns), Steve Smith has struggled through injuries jumping from the Giants to the Philadelphia Eagles last season. Smith only appeared in nine games, having eleven catches for 124 yards and a touchdown.

We’ll see what he can do for this rebuilding St. Louis team.
