Smith, 22, was taken in the third round of last year’s NFL draft by the Colts and signed a four-year, $3.314 million rookie contract that included an $808,846 signing bonus.

Indianapolis placed Smith knee on short-term I.R. with a knee injury just a few weeks into the regular season. The Colts later waived him with an injury designation and he later reverted to their injured reserve list.

Indianapolis decided to waive Smith from injured reserve with a settlement back in September and he signed on to the Lions’ practice squad a few weeks later.

Detroit, unfortunately, decided to cut him to make room for TE Khari Lee” href=”http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/L/LeexKh00.htm?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>Khari Lee.

In 2015, Smith appeared in four games and recorded one tackle and a fumble recovery for the Colts.

Washington, 24, originally signed on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Newberry back in May of 2014. He lasted just a few weeks with the Cardinals before he was waived and later claimed by the Giants.

After a year in New York, Washington had brief stints with the Redskins and Lions before signing on with the Falcons back in July. Unfortunately, he was among the Falcons’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Bills wound up signing him to their practice squad in October but waived him later that month.

In 2014, Washington appeared in 14 games for the Giants and caught five passes for 52 yards receiving and a touchdown.
