It should have a date on the package that says "Use or freeze by" blah blah date. If you are going to smoke it before that date I wouldn't freeze it. Just keep it in the fridge at a safe temp and you'll be fine.

Meat from the packer in an intact original cryovac packaging will last 2-3 weeks in a refer that is not opened frequently. You will get 7-10 in intact packaging in the kitchen refer...JJ

I think that you'll be okay. I purchased some meat recently when the selection was poor. The only brisket available was graying and discolored because it was a little old. It smoked up really nice and gray sections didn't taste any different than the rest of the meat.
