Updating a previous report, The Associated Press reports the Denver Broncos provided some salary cap relief by placing WR Rod Smith (hip) on the reserve/retired list Friday, Feb. 15. Despite the move by the team, Smith can still return to the Broncos, provided he recovers from hip surgery. "If it turns out that he can contribute later, I'm sure they'd welcome him back," Smith's agent Tom Mills said Friday, Feb. 15. "It just gives them flexibility for life without him." Smith is scheduled to make $1.5 million in 2008.
