Back in 2009, S Anthony Smith was a low cost free agent signing by the Green Bay Packers who played pretty good during the preseason. He had a couple of INTs, but also drew some penalty flags. He was a surprise cut at the end of training camp when GM Ted Thompson kept the immortal S Aaron Rouse over Smith. 

Smith has bounced around since then. Playing last season for the Rams and Jaguars, and he remained in Jacksonville this season. He's got an INT, apparently been missing some tackles, and been part of one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. But according to the Journal Sentinel, he's returning to the Packers via trade. This one just got in under the wire since the NFL trade deadline is on Tuesday.

According to the same Journal Sentinel report, while CB Al Harris is expected to practice as soon as he's eligible to come off the PUP list, it's not clear if SS Atari Bigby will be ready. That's a surprise. As much as Smith might be insurance in case Bigby can't return this season, it might also be a sign that depth is a concern after losing SS Morgan Burnett and S Derrick Martin to season-ending injuries in consecutive weeks.

It will be interesting to see what role he'll play.
