BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Of the many hats jack-of-all-trades specialist Brad Smith wears playing for the Buffalo Bills, none of them happen to be designed by Tommy Hilfiger.
That’s about to change.
The Bills receiver, part-time quarterback and kickoff returner is preparing to expand his already versatile repertoire. Smith is going to try his hand at journalism and style, working as an intern for Men’s Health Magazine to assist covering New York Fashion Week, which opens Thursday.
"I’m excited about the opportunity," Smith said. "I’m excited about meeting new people. It’s kind of an adrenalin rush. It’s not in your comfort zone. You don’t know anybody, which makes it exciting."
And a little daunting, too, for Smith, who is more familiar running the wildcat formation than he is the catwalk.
"I like to dress up," he said. "But at the same time, I’m a guy who will wear the same stuff for practice for a week -- same sweat pants, practice jersey, whatever -- to try to save on laundry."
