Pats Make a Deal with Bucs for TE Alex Smith

NFL/
The Patriots and Buccaneers did some wheeling and dealing today, as the Pats traded with Tampa Bay for tight end Alex Smith. Reports say that the Pats gave up an undisclosed pick in next year’s NFL draft for the four-year veteran.

Smith was drafted by the Buccaneers in the third round in 2005. He had 129 receptions for 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns in 58 games. He started 12 of the 14 games he played last year, catching 21 passes.

He caught 41 passes in 2005, the most by a rookie tight end that season. The Patriots have nine draft picks in 2010 plus an undisclosed choice obtained in a trade that also brought them wide receiver Greg Lewis from Philadelphia.
