Minnesota waived Smith on Thursday as they set their roster for last night’s game.
Smith, 24, signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State back in April of last year. He wound up appearing in four games during the 2013 season, but didn’t record a single statistic.
Smith offers plenty of size a 6’5 and 220 pounds, so it will be interesting to see if he ends up seeing some playing for the Browns.
