Moments after Kelly’s hiring became official, Smith tweeted: "Guess I might have to start running right now to get in shape" — a reference to being prepared for the fast-break offense run by Kelly with the Philadelphia Eagles.
A number of fans reacted to Smith’s Twitter posting with cautionary warnings, due mainly in part to Kelly’s history of roster upheaval during his three-year tenure with Philadelphia before he was fired prior to the end of this season.
@TorreySmithWR at least now you can expect several shots deep with you a game instead of 2 shots in 2015.
Smith, who left the Baltimore Ravens to sign a five-year, $40 million free-agent contract with San Francisco prior to last season, had a career-low 33 receptions in 2015. He had two catches or fewer 12 times in a 13-game span in a vanilla offense, which should certainly change dramatically under Kelly.
