Awesome signing! Clifton "Peanut" Smith was originally signed by the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Fresno State.
A little history: In week 9 of the 2008 NFL season in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs, 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 Detroit Lions, Smith took a punt return for a touchdown for 70 yards. On December 16th, 2008, Smith was named to be on his first career Pro Bowl as the NFC's kick returner & punt returner. During an October 18th game against the Carolina Panthers, Smith suffered a concussion as a result of being rammed into by Panthers cornerback Dante Wesley while awaiting a punt return. The Panthers received a 15 yard penalty and Wesley was ejected. Smith was placed on Injured Reserve on December 8, 2009, due to a second concussion. On September 5, 2010, after claiming running back Kregg Lumpkin off waivers from Green Bay, the Bucs released Smith.
