CB - HOU
Former Chiefs and Packers CB Tremon Smith has signed a deal with the Indianapolis Colts.
Smith was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the sixth-round of the 2018 Draft. He’s played for both the Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers in his two seasons in the NFL and has yet to intercept a pass. He’s nothing more than added depth in the secondary for the Colts at this point and will likely be on the bubble as roster cuts occur later this month.
Pete Sweeney of SBNation reports that rookie sixth-round cornerback Tremon Smith will be the name to watch at kick returner for the Chiefs.
Smith returned kicks throughout his final two seasons at Central Arkansas and Kansas City special teams coordinator Dave Toub is excited about his potential, admitting that he is "very, very fast." Smith's best bet to early season playing time will certainly be making an impact on special teams so it sounds like he is on the right track. The biggest fantasy takeaway from this statement is that Toub assured the media that Smith would only be returning kicks, not punts, as Tyreek Hill still owns that role (and rightfully so).
