The Facts: The NFL’s daily transactions report brings word that the Saints signed journeyman tight end Smith. The team waived/injured tight end Jack Tabb after he was carted off the field during Thursday’s practice with an apparent knee injury.
Diehards Line: The Saints have also been without Josh Hill and Kevin Brock recently as they recover from injuries, which left the team in need of a healthy body to go with Ben Watson and Orson Charles. Smith spent the last two seasons with the Bengals, but only played in two games last year before hitting injured reserve with a biceps injury. He had three catches for 12 yards and a touchdown in 2013 and has also played for the Browns, Eagles and Buccaneers since entering the league as a third-round pick by Tampa in the 2005 draft.
