It seems that Jacquies Smith is not quite ready to return from the ACL injury he sustained in the season opener against Atlanta, last year.
Tampa has placed the 4th year defensive end on the Physically unable to perform list but is eligible to be reinstated anytime during training camp.
Jacquies Smith was an RFA (restricted free agent) during the offseason, and he had visited with the San Francisco 49ers. Smith left the 49ers with no contract and then signed this tender with the Buccaneers. Playing only two seasons in the NFL, Smith has recorded 13.5 sacks and 39 tackles.
IfWhen Smith is healthy, he is a much-needed talent on the outside and an incredible asset to our pass rush.
