The Cowboys cut Smith on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old only saw action in four games with the Cowboys in 2019, catching five of nine targets for 113 yards and a touchdown. Smith has seen action in 18 games in his career with the Jets and Cowboys, so he could be an intriguing depth option for another team around the league.
Smith finished the 2019 season having caught five of nine targets for 113 yards and a touchdown through four games.
The former Jet hadn't played in an NFL game since 2016, but after a strong showing in training camp and the preseason, Smith began the year on the 53-man roster and showed flashes of his promise as a deep threat by hauling in his second career TD in Week 2. By Week 5, however, he was inactive and didn't see another snap the rest of the season. With both Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb free agents this offseason, there could be openings on the depth chart ahead of him heading into 2020, but Smith would still be a longshot to have significant fantasy value.
Smith (knee) was credited with a full practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith's status is merely an estimation as the Cowboys would not practice until later Wednesday afternoon. While the 27-year-old has recovered from his injury, he is still unlikely to be active Week 17.
Smith picked up a knee injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Smith was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited participant and his availability for Sunday remains up in the air. The 27-year-old hasn't seen game action since Week 4, so there's a good chance he'll be inactive regardless of his injury status this weekend.
Smith (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Eagles, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith got a chance early in the season when Michael Gallup was sidelined. That said, Gallup is available Sunday for a third straight game, ensuring Smith is a part of the inactive list. This may be Smith's reality without an absence from Gallup.
Smith (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
This is the second straight game that Smith will be a healthy scratch, despite Randall Cobb (back) being inactive for this contest. The Cowboys' wideout corps will continue to be led by Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup while Tavon Austin is expected to slot in as the No. 3 option.
Smith (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Packers, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
After getting heavy usage during Michael Gallup's (knee) two-game absence, Smith will don street clothes for the first time this season. The decision likely stems from hauling in just two of six targets during that stretch.
Smith was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 12-10 loss to the Saints.
After going for 74 yards and a score in Week 2, Smith has slid down over the past two weeks, culminating in Sunday's disappointing performance. Smith is obviously not an integral part of Dallas' offense, but it's worth mentioning that -- despite just five catches in three games -- he's averaging a whopping 22.6 yards per reception. He certainly provides a big-play threat in the Dallas offense, but that will be hard to tap into in Week 5 against a Green Bay team adept at keeping opposing passing games in front of them with just 10.9 yards per opponent reception, 12th best in the league.
Smith caught two of five targets for 39 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
Getting the start in place of Michael Gallup (knee), Smith finished second on the Cowboys in targets and came within inches of a much more impressive performance, as Dak Prescott just overthrew him in the corner of the end zone on the team's opening drive. Gallup's timetable for a recovery isn't yet clear, but Smith should see an expanded role at least through Week 4's contest against the Saints.
Smith could see his snap count increase in the Cowboys' upcoming game Sunday against the Dolphins with starting receiver Michael Gallup (knee) expected to be sidelined for at least 2-to-4 weeks, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Smith already benefited from Gallup's early departure due to the meniscus injury in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Redskins, playing 18 of the Cowboys' 70 offensive snaps and finishing with three receptions for 74 yards and a score on three targets. As he showed on his 51-yard touchdown jaunt, Smith offers his most utility as a deep-ball threat, so he won't necessarily absorb all of Gallup's work in the intermediate area. That said, the presence of one fewer receiver should prove beneficial to Smith and other tertiary options in the passing game like Tavon Austin (concussion) and running back Tony Pollard.
Smith caught all three of his targets for 74 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-21 win over Washington.
Smith helped his team climb out of an early hole when he hauled in a 51-yard touchdown pass to complete a 97-yard scoring drive in the first quarter. Despite not catching a pass last week, the long score helped Smith lead a talented receiving corps in yardage for the day. While his deep-threat role should lead to volatile production patterns this season, his ability to get behind defenses could add yet another dimension to an already potent offense.
Smith caught six of 10 targets for 79 yards during Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.
Smith caught some eyes after the first-string offense left the game, leading the team in targets, receptions and receiving yardage. He was rather consistent, posting a long gain of 16 yards while averaging 13.2 yards per catch. Smith has made a name for himself in recent weeks and seems to be making the most of his opportunity to earn a roster spot. Another strong performance Thursday against the Buccaneers could do just that for him.
Smith caught three of five targets for 24 yards during Saturday's 14-10 preseason win over the Rams.
Smith tied for the team lead in targets while finishing second in catches and receiving yards. His long gain went for just 12 yards, but his involvement, beginning on the team's second series, was notable after an explosive preseason debut last week. Smith has impressed as camp has progressed and will look to continue making his case for a roster spot Saturday against the Texans.
Smith signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Smith spent the entire 2018 season as a free agent after being released by the Jets in July. The 2015 second-round pick out of Ohio State has recorded 10 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown across 14 games in his NFL career. A pair of ACL tears have done damage to Smith's former explosiveness, and he likely will need to impress in other areas this offseason for any chance of carving out a depth role.
Smith worked out for the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Smith, a 2015 second-round draft pick out of Ohio State, has been a free agent since getting released by the Jets in July. Houston could be looking for additional depth at wideout in the event Keke Coutee's hamstring injury sidelines him for this week and beyond. Smith has recorded 10 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown over 14 career NFL regular-season games.
The Jets released Smith (knee) on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
A 2015 second-round pick, Smith suited up in just 14 games during his three seasons with the Jets, with only four of those appearances coming in the last two years. A pair of ACL tears were the main culprits in Smith's demise, as the knee injuries robbed him of some of the explosiveness that made him a dangerous downfield threat during his college days at Ohio State. The 26-year-old is still working his way back from April 2017 knee surgery and will probably need to impress in workouts before another team signs him to a contract.
Coach Todd Bowles indicated Tuesday that he doesn't anticipate Smith (knee) practicing until training camp, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Smith continues to work his way back from a torn ACL that landed him on injured reserve for all of the 2017 campaign. A second-round selection in 2015, he's never been close to living up to the billing, totaling 10 total catches over the first two seasons of his career. It's unclear how stable his roster spot is with the Jets entering 2018, but a good training camp showing would certainly help his cause.
Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Smith was waived with an injury designation last week and after going unclaimed, was placed on the Jets injured reserve list. It marks Smith's second ACL tear in three seasons, putting his NFL career into serious question.
Smith (knee) was waived with an injury designation by the Jets on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Smith underwent surgery on a torn ACL in April and was ruled out for all of the 2017 season. It's possible that the team moves him to injured reserve if he clears waivers.
Smith has been ruled out for the season after undergoing surgery on a torn ACL suffered earlier this month, ESPN.com reports.
Smith missed most of last season because of a serious knee injury, and he was only able to appear in nine games during his rookie year because of a rib issue. His absence is certainly a blow to a Jets receiving corps that lost Brandon Marshall in the offseason, though they drafted two wideouts in this year's draft to start filling the void.
