The Buccaneers have hired former tight end Alex Smith as a pro scout.
The Bucs were the first of five teams Smith played for in his 11-year playing career. He was drafted in the third round in 2005 and caught 11 touchdown passes over his four seasons in Tampa Bay.
Per the Tampa Bay Times, Smith worked with the Bucs in training camp last year as part of the NFL’s Nunn-Wooten minority scouting internship program. He last played in 2015 for Washington and also played for the Eagles, Browns and Bengals after leaving the Bucs.
Smith finished his career with 13 touchdown catches in 124 games.
