Broncos Sign DL Antonio Smith To A One-Year, $2M Deal

The Denver Broncos and veteran DL Antonio Smith have reached an agreement on a one-year contract worth $2 million, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

There are some obvious connections to the Broncos given that they have hired Wade Phillips as their defensive coordinator and Bill Kollar as their defensive line coach.

The Texans also came up as a potential option for Smith shortly after he was released by the Raiders.

Smith, 33, spent five years of his career with the Texans before signing a two-year, $9 million contract that he signed with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent last March.

In 2014, Smith appeared in all 16 games for the Raiders and recorded 20 tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 57 defensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players. Interestingly enough, he graded out as the third best interior pass-rusher in the league, but was also the worst run-stopper.
