Buccaneers Bringing In Veteran LB Daryl Smith For A Visit

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Buccaneers are bringing in veteran LB Daryl Smith for a visit at some point in the near future.

This is the first reported interest in Smith since he was cut loose just a few days before the start of the regular season.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Smith to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Smith, 33, was in the third year of his four-year, $13.6 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $3 million in 2016 when he was released in a move that freed up $2.625 million in available cap space for the Ravens.

In 2015, Smith appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and recorded 121 tackles, three sacks, an interception and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 71 linebacker out of 97 qualifying players.
