Smith, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in May of last year. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2.446 million contract and set to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season when the Seahawks cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
Seattle later signed him to their practice squad before cutting him loose in September. The Redskins later added him to their practice squad.
In 2015, Smith appeared in four games for the Seahawks and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.
