Smith, 26, was a second-round pick by the Cowboys out of Notre Dame in the 2016 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, $6,494,970 rookie contract. 

Smith was headed into his fourth season when he signed a five-year, $64 million extension in 2019. The Cowboys made the decision to release Smith and he later signed on with the Packers, but was released after a few weeks. 

The Giants just signed Smith to their practice squad. 

In 2021, Smith has appeared in six games for the Packers and Cowboys, recording 19 tackles and no sacks.
