NFL Free Agency News: Steve Smith To St. Louis Rams

There will not be a reunion between Steve Smith and the New York Giants. The wide receiver has reportedly agreed to go catch passes from Sam Bradford for the St. Louis Rams.

Smith caught just 11 passes for Philadelphia last season after unexpectedly bolting to the Eagles via free agency. There had been plenty of speculation that the Giants' single-season record-holder for receptions might return to New York after the defection of Mario Manningham to the San Francisco 49ers.

Other Notes

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News has been a busy man this afternoon. RV interviewed Giants general manager Jerry Reese on Sirius XM today, and a couple of interesting nuggets came out of that.

  • Vacchiano reported that the Giants have about $2.5M in cap space, but Reese said he's not done with free agency: "There’s still some things to do in free agency for us, I think. We’ve just got to kind of slow-play it a little bit and see who’s out there and what’s available for us and what our needs are as we continue the offseason process, and kind of look down the road and see what the draft’s going to bring for us, see what’s available there."
  • Vacchiano also reported that right now Reese sees Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones and Michael Boley as middle linebacker possibilities.
