CB - FA
The Vikings released CB Tye Smith for the second time in two weeks on Monday following their final preseason game.
The 29-year-old re-signed with Minnesota last week and was promptly let go after providing roster depth for the team's final preseason game against Denver. The six-year veteran is now free to sign with any team.
The Vikings re-signed CB Tye Smith after letting him go two weeks ago when rosters were reduced to 85 players.
Smith played on Minnesota's practice squad in 2021 and appeared in five NFL games. The 29-year-old will see most of his time on special teams, but he got 17 defensive snaps in 2021 and could see more this year. There is no reason to roster him in fantasy unless you play in the deepest of IDP leagues.
Tye Smith posted five solo tackles, two assisted tackles, one forced fumble, and returned a blocked field goal attempt 72 yards for a score as the Titans left Indianapolis with a 31-17 win.
Smith was involved in two of the bigger plays of an AFC South matchup with important playoff implications. He scored the first touchdown of his career when an Adam Vinatieri field goal attempt to give the Colts a 20-17 lead was blocked, and he took the loose ball to the house to give the Titans an unexpected 24-17 advantage late in the fourth quarter. He then stripped Ross Travis just before the two-minute warning, ending any hopes of Colts comeback. Smith ultimately had a game to remember, but it may be hard to replicate his success when he faces the Raiders next week.
CB Tye Smith finished with two tackles and one interception in a loss to the Dolphins.
It was the first pick of Tye Smith's young career. Dolphins QB Jay Cutler forced a pass to his receiver that was tipped and Smith was able to catch it. Smith isn't a option in IDP leagues at this point.
