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:



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!

    The good news is, he no longer has to live in Atlanta.

    Hate to hear this. My son played football at StX with Matt. Outstanding young man.

    “Rubbing salt in the wound,” infers bad news coming while still dealing with some previous bad news, hence twice the pain of salt in a wound. Matt has only experienced the wound so far, so here’s hoping the salt never comes.
