Former Giants WR Steve Smith Retires After Six Seasons
Four years after finishing second in the NFL in receptions (107) to Wes Welker, former New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith announced his retirement from the NFL.
Known in fantasy football circles as "the other Steve Smith," the 2007 second-round pick never regained his pre-injury explosiveness and sharp cutting ability after undergoing microfracture knee surgery and a mosaicplasty procedure late in the 2010 season.
Smith bounced around the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Buccaneers over the past two years, managing just 25 receptions for 255 years.
There was no new injury that led Smith to retire, reports NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. He simply can't play at the level necessary anymore and realized it was best to walk away.
Thanks to 86WARD for the sig!
