Earlier this offseason, former Bills tight end Lee Smith admitted he was considering retiring. Turns out he’s going to continue playing, but it won’t be for Buffalo anymore.

Smith, who started his career with the Bills, returned in 2019, but was traded last week. The Bills received a seventh-round pick for him from the Atlanta Falcons.

But before departing, the 33-year-old took to his social media account on Instagram and sent a thanks to Buffalo.

Here’s his full message via Bills Wire’s Bradley Gelber:

In trading Smith, the Bills were making more of a salary cap cut. Moving him saves the team north of $2 million against the salary cap. Without Smith, the Bills will have Dawson Knox and recently signed tight end Jacob Hollister at tight end thus far in 2021.

General manager Brandon Beane suggested tight end Tommy Sweeney would be returning to the team, too. Sweeney had an extended health issue with COVID-19 last year.
