NFL Free Agency 2012: Steve Smith Signs With St. Louis Rams

Steve Smith will not be returning for a second stint with the New York Giants.

Despite rumors circulating that Smith could perhaps return to New York after one season with the Philadelphia Eagles, the wide receiver signed a one-year deal on Monday with the St. Louis Rams.

Smith made the Pro Bowl in 2009 with the Giants after catching 107 passes for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns, but has managed just 59 catches since while struggling through two injury-hindered seasons. The 26-year old had microfracture surgery in 2010 and also ended up on the injured reserve list in 2011 during his lone season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Smith played nine games last year, catching 11 passes for 124 yards and one touchdown.
