Vikings Signing CB Tye Smith

According to Josina Anderson, the Vikings are signing CB Tye Smith to a one-year minimum contract. 

Smith, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in May of 2015. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2.446 million contract and set to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season when the Seahawks cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

Seattle later signed him to their practice squad before cutting him again. He was later added to the Redskins’ practice squad. The Titans claimed him off Washington’s practice squad and signed him to a futures contract in January of 2017. 

Smith was placed on injured reserve and missed the entire 2018 season. He re-signed with the team to one-year deals in 2019 and 2020. 

In 2020, Smith appeared in 12 games for the Titans and recorded 15 tackles, no interceptions, and one pass defense.
