Ravens Cut Chris Smith

The Ravens are releasing Chris Smith (Twitter link via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com). The defensive end joined the team on a one-year deal just last month, but he was unable to make the team’s final cut to 53.

Smith has previously spent time with the Bengals and Browns over the past few years. Baltimore was set to be the next stop on his AFC North tour, after he bested former No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan and Shilique Calhoun in a workout.

Smith, an Arkansas product, first entered the league as a fifth-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2014.He played sparingly in Jacksonville, then was traded to Cincy before the 2017 season. He played solid in a rotational role, notching three sacks, four tackles for loss, and two passes defended. That earned him a three-year contract from the Browns, although he was cut after a season and a half. Smith spent 2020 bouncing between the Raiders’ practice squad and varsity roster.

All in all, the 29-year-old has 68 career games to his credit for the Jags, Browns, Bengals, and Raiders. Despite the experience, he’s yet to see a ton of playing time. To date, he has never posted more than 26 tackles in a single season.

Ravens To Sign Chris Smith

Chris Smith is making another stop on his AFC North tour. The free agent defensive end has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Ravens, his agent Drew Rosenhaus announced.

Smith has previously spent time with the Bengals and Browns over the past few years. Baltimore worked out a group of pass-rushers Monday, which also included former third overall pick Dion Jordan and Shilique Calhoun, as Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. Smith apparently won that competition. The Arkansas product originally entered the league as a fifth-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2014.

He played sparingly in Jacksonville, then was traded to Cincy before the 2017 season. He played solid in a rotational role, notching three sacks, four tackles for loss, and two passes defended. That earned him a three-year contract from the Browns, although he was cut after a season and a half.

He latched on with the Raiders last year, and bounced between their practice squad and active roster. Smith turned 29 back in February. Baltimore doesn’t have a ton at defensive end right now beyond Calais Campbell and Derek Wolfe, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Smith ends up making the team.
