BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Brad Smith’s coming to Buffalo, and the wildcat can’t be far behind after the multitalented offensive player agreed to a four-year contract worth about $15 million with the Bills.

The former Missouri Tigers standout’s agent Mark Bartelstein confirmed his client’s agreement and the terms of the contract Thursday.

Smith’s versatility as a receiver, rusher and ability to take snaps out of the quarterback spot in wildcat formations complements Bills coach Chan Gailey’s wide-open offensive philosophy. A four-year NFL player, Smith also has vast special teams experience as a punt-returner and on coverage units.

In an e-mail to The Associated Press, Smith, a former New York Jet, wrote that he’s very glad to be joining the Bills and is excited for the opportunity to play for Gailey.

ESPN.com first reported Smith’s deal with the Bills.
