Smith, 24, signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic following the 2020 NFL Draft. He was waived coming out of camp and re-signed with Chicago’s practice squad.
The Cowboys signed Smith to their active roster off the Bears practice squad in September. When Dallas waived him later in the season, Smith caught on with the Eagles practice squad and bounced on and off their active roster.
Philadelphia waived Smith coming out of the preseason last month and he was briefly with the 49ers on their practice squad.
In 2020, Smith appeared in two games for the Eagles and recorded three total tackles.
