WR Smith Agrees To Terms With Rams

Unrestricted free agent wide receiver Steve Smith agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the St. Louis Rams on Monday, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Smith signed with the Eagles last offseason and contributed 11 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown in nine games before being placed on the injured reserve list with a recurring knee injury on December 12. His lone touchdown came in the win against his former team, the New York Giants, on November 20.

Selected in the second round by the Giants in 2007, Smith earned Pro Bowl honors in 2009 after he caught 107 passes for 1,220 yards and scored seven touchdowns. Smith's 2010 season was cut short due to a knee injury that required microfracture surgery. The Eagles beat out the Giants for his services last year and was ready to play in the season opener, but was only called upon to start one game.

The knee started to cause problems for Smith again late in the year and the Eagles decided to place him on injured reserve, which ended his season.

Smith is only the second Eagles free agent to sign with another team joining defensive end Juqua Parker, who joined the Browns.
