Bills acquire linebacker Andre Smith in trade with Panthers

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills acquired linebacker Andre Smith for a conditional pick in the 2023 draft in completing a trade with the Carolina Panthers on Monday.

Smith has appeared in 19 NFL games, and mainly played in special teams roles during his two seasons with Carolina since being selected in the seventh round of the 2018 draft. He’s listed at 6 feet and 240 pounds, and played his college career at North Carolina.

The move was completed as NFL teams prepare to make their final cuts to establish their regular-season rosters by Saturday.

The Panthers actually drafted Smith with the 234th overall pick, which they acquired from the Bills as part of the trade that sent receiver Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo in October 2017.
