Drafted as a Wide Receiver/Quarterback, Brad proved to be a versatile and valuable member of the New York Jets organization, making plays not only in  those positions, but also as a running back and on special teams. During his rookie year, he was awarded the Jets’ Kyle Clifton Good Guy Award for his consistent cooperation and professionalism in dealing with various team departments. In December 2009, he returned a kickoff for a 106-yard touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts, completing the longest kickoff return in NY Jets history and tying for the second longest kickoff return in NFL history. In 2011 after the NFL lockout, he was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an unrestricted free agent and earned most of his playtime in wildcat formations. To date, Smith is the only NFL player in history to score touchdowns on kickoff return (three times), reception (twice), rush (twice), blocked punt (once) and also threw a touchdown pass. Smith enjoys spending time with his wife, Rosalynn and their son, Bradley Alexander Smith, Jr. and empowering inner city youth through his foundation and now making a place for himself in fashion.
