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 for Smith, who's more familiar running the wildcat formation than he is the catwalk.
The Bills receiver, part-time quarterback and kickoff returner 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.
Smith's responsibilities will involve interviewing designers — including Hilfiger — attending photo shoots, providing grooming tips and filing reports for the magazine's website.
Smith was prompted by a friend to apply for the position because it fit the player's off-the-field interests. Smith follows fashion and has a degree in marketing.
