Falcons Sign FB Keith Smith, Add Two To PS


The Atlanta Falcons have signed FB Keith Smith to a contract on Monday, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter.

Other roster moves:

  • Falcons waived Ricky Ortiz (ankle) with an injury settlement.
  • Falcons signed WR Brandon Powell and S Jamal Carter to their practice squad.

Smith, 27, signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of San Jose State back in 2014. He was on and off of their practice squad the first few years before converting from linebacker to fullback for the 2016 season.

The Cowboys declined to tender Smith a restricted offer, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent last year. The Raiders signed him to a two-year, $4.2 million deal last offseason only to release him this past weekend.  

In 2018, Smith appeared in all 16 games for the Raiders and caught five passes for 23 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
