Miami wins out on signing former Bucs Pro Bowl kick returner Clifton Smith

The Dolphins have a new kick returner, as the team is about to ink former Bucs Pro Bowl kicker returner Clifton Smith.

Possibly not content with their current kickoff and punt returners, the Miami Dolphins will work out Pro Bowl return specialist Clifton Smith Wednesday, Sept. 8.

Smith, who was waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during final cuts Saturday, worked out for the Green Bay Packers today and reportedly has at least a few offers on the table.

While the Pack had the offer on the table, Jason Wilde, Packers writer, says that Smith is going to ink with the Fins.

NFL source just told me that @CliftonSmith22 has informed the Packers that he has signed with Miami.

In week 9 of the 2008 season in a game against theChiefs, Smith took a kickoff return for a touchdown for 97 yards for just the second time in Buccaneer history. In week 12 of the 2008 NFL season in a game against the Lions, Smith took a punt return for a touchdown for 70 yards.
