Smith, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2014. He lasted just a few months before he was waived a few weeks into the regular season. Jacksonville later added him to their practice squad before eventually calling him up later on in the year.

Jacksonville traded Smith to the Bengals in 2017 in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

After playing out his rookie contract, Smith signed a three-year, $14 million deal with the Browns in free agency in 2018. He was released by Cleveland in December and will not count toward the compensatory pick formula. The Ravens signed him to their practice squad but was cut loose last month. 

In 2021, Smith has appeared in three games for the Texans and recorded six total tackles with one sack.
