Akili Smith - QB, Green Bay Packers
Smith has signed with the Buccaneers. Cincinnati selected Smith third overall in the 1999 draft, but it didn't take long for him to flop. He has not played in an NFL game since 2002 and hasn't started multiple games in a season since 2000.
Fantasy Source spin: Tampa Bay is looking to restructure Brian Griese's deal, and bring him back as the starter. Smith's addition could give the Bucs some leverage in those talks. Chris Simms is entrenched as the backup, so Smith's best chance is to make the team as a No. 3 QB. (Rob Hurtt/TSN)
