  Saints | Make roster moves    Fri Aug 7, 05:10 PM

Free-agent TE Alex E. Smith (Bengals) signed with the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 7. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived/injured TE Jack Tabb (knee).

Footballguys view: The Saints got their former Bengals tight end! They had offered a contract to Jermaine Gresham earlier this year, but he decided to sign with the Cardinals. Smith is mostly a blocking tight end who gives them veteran depth, and he has little fantasy value.

  Browns | Two likely to walk    Fri Mar 1, 08:53 AM

The Cleveland Browns are unlikely to re-sign TE Benjamin Watson and FB/TE E. Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: The Browns should add help at the TE position through the draft or free agency. Many think they could draft Nick Kasa (Colorado) in the mid-rounds. The Browns new TE coach, John Embree, was the head coach at CU when Kasa was there.

  Browns | Two TEs expected to leave    Sun Feb 10, 02:32 PM

The Cleveland Browns are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent TEs Benjamin Watson and E. Alex Smith this offseason.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in dynasty leagues need to be excited about the prospects of Jordan Cameron. The former USC basketball star has been developing for the last two years and he could have a bigger role in 2013. Norv Turner helped make Antonio Gates a star in San Diego and he could do something similar with Cameron.

Alex Smith, S Ray Ventrone and TE Benjamin Watson are not expected to be re-signed this offseason. QB Colt McCoy isn't expected to return, either, but LB D'Qwell Jackson probably has another year left, although the switch to a 3-4 defense lowers Jackson's value.

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (Hamstring), DB Tashaun Gipson (knee), WR Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring), TE E. Alex Smith (head), and DB TJ Ward (hand) all missed practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

Footballguys view: With both Massaquoi and Benjamin slowed down by hamstring injuries we could see more from WRs like Greg Little and Josh Gordon. Massaquoi sat out week 4 and remains day-to-day with his hamstring injury. No word on how serious Benjamin's injury is. There has been no official announcement on the playing status of these two, check back to see if they can practice on Friday.
