Former UK Center Matt Smith sought to achieve the dream by making it to the National Football League. After signing with the Atlanta Falcons as a Free Agent, Smith’s dream came up just short after failing to earn a roster spot as the NFL preseason winds down. Smith Tweeted this out earlier today:
My time in ATL is over. I appreciate the opportunity and the support. Back to KY and on to the next

Smith will surely have more opportunities to find a place to play, but getting cut is salt on the wound. The best of luck to you Matt!
