Bills announce Bruce Smith as the Legend of the Game | 2023 AFC Divisional Round


Buffalo Bills defensive end and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bruce Smith will be the Legend of the Game for the Bills' upcoming Divisional Round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Smith spent the first 15 years of his 19-year career in Buffalo, where he was an eight-time First Team AP All-Pro selection and an 11-time Pro Bowler. With 200 career sacks, Smith is the NFL's all-time sack leader and one of the best to ever step onto the gridiron.

Smith played college football at Virginia Tech and won the Outland Trophy during his senior season. He was selected by Buffalo with the first overall pick in the 1985 draft, beginning a legendary career.

In Buffalo, Smith was an integral part of four consecutive AFC Championship teams. Smith started all but four of his 217 games played in blue and red. Smith finished his career playing four seasons in Washington and passed Reggie White's then NFL record 198 sacks in 2003.

Smith currently lives in Virginia Beach and works as a large-scale hotel designer. He also works with fellow Bills legend Thurman Thomas on Legends Energy Group, an energy company specializing in solar panel installations.
