The Raiders released Smith on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Smith was a late addition to training camp, signing Aug. 25 with a little over a week left. The 28-year-old defensive end failed to make enough of an impact to retain a reserve role, as Las Vegas opted to keep Arden Key and Carl Nassib as the primary backups to Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby.
Smith signed a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday.
Smith was cut by the Panthers on Aug. 1, but he has an opportunity to secure a depth role with the Raiders. Over the last three seasons, he's played in 41 games and recorded 58 tackles, four sacks and five pass breakups.
Smith was released by the Panthers on Thursday, Myles Simmons of the team's official website reports.
Smith signed a one-year contract with the team in March but things ultimately did not pan out. He spent the last two seasons in Cleveland providing depth on the defensive line. The veteran will now need to find a new landing spot.
Smith signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Smith played a reserve role in Cleveland for the last two years, totaling 22 tackles and three pass breakups over 25 games. There's steep competition in front of him in Carolina, so he's far from a lock to make Carolina's roster once the preseason concludes.
Smith was waived by the Browns on Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Smith was a healthy scratch for Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh, as he apparently fell out of favor in the defensive line rotation. The 27-year-old had one assisted tackle in nine games while working in a rotational role.
Smith is a healthy scratch Week 13 against Pittsburgh.
Smith briefly saw an uptick in playing time with Olivier Vernon injured, but Vernon is back this week for the divisional matchup, and Smith will sit as a result. It also appears that Bryan Cox has moved ahead of him in the defensive line rotation, according to Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.
Smith will start in place of Olivier Vernon (knee) in the team's Week 12 contest against the Dolphins, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Smith has not played more than 40 percent of the team's defensive snaps in any game this season, even with Vernon absent. However, with Myles Garrett (suspension) also unavailable, Smith should be in line for a bigger role in Week 12.
Smith (personal) will play in Sunday's game versus the Rams.
Smith doesn't have a tackle through two games, although he only played 35 defensive snaps in that span. His usage will be similar in this contest with Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon manning the starter reps.
Smith will not practice Thursday due to personal reasons, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Smith also did not practice Wednesday. He suited up during Monday's win over the Jets and played his usual rotational role, recording one defended pass. Smith's availability for Week 3 could come down to the extent of his participation in Friday's practice.
Smith will play in Monday's game versus the Browns, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Smith's girlfriend was tragically killed in a car accident last week. He will return to the lineup as the Browns seek their first win of the year.
Smith (undisclosed) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Jets, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Smith was a full participant in Saturday's practice, but his status is still in doubt. If he is able to suit up, Smith will likely not play a large role in the defense, as he only played nine defensive snaps in Week 1.
Smith will start at defensive end in place of the injured Emmanuel Ogbah (ankle), Tony Grossi of ESPN reports.
Smith logged 57 snaps on defense Week 1 against the Steelers and was able to turn that into three tackles (one solo). Ogbah still played 27 snaps in that outing, so look for Smith's workload to increase slightly.
Smith signed a three-year, $14 million contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
The Browns are putting a great deal of confidence in Smith, who has just 7.5 sacks over four seasons in the league. The 2017 season was the first one where Smith played all 16 games, and he posted 26 tackles and three sacks while averaging just 25 defensive snaps per game for the Bengals. Smith will compete with Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah for reps at defensive end.
Smith had three tackles (one solo) with a half-sack in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Rams.
Smith played 31 of 70 defensive snaps and also added a pass deflection. The 25-year-old's season sack total now sits at three as he continues to serve as a rotational defensive end for the Bengals.
Smith had three tackles (two solo) and had a half-sack in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Packers.
Smith didn't have as big an impact as one would hope on a day when the Bengals sacked Aaron Rodgers six times. The 25-year-old performed fairly well when on the field, but he played only 22 of 70 defensive snaps with Michael Johnson returning from a concussion.
Smith recorded six tackles (three solo) to go along with his first sack of the season in Thursday's loss to the Texans.
Smith made up for a sluggish start to the year, as he recorded just one tackle in the team's season opener. The 25-year-old saw 34 snaps (52 percent) in Week 2, which is right around where you would expect the rotational defensive end to wind up. He will line up against a Packers' offensive line in Week 3 that has both starting tackles dealing with injuries, so he could be potentially in line for an advantageous situation.
Smith registered his second sack of the preseason in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
Smith was working with the first-team defense and got his sack Sunday on the first drive of the game. At this point, not only is it likely that he'll make the Bengals' Week 1 roster, but that he'll play a significant role in their DL rotation as well.
Smith was traded to the Bengals on Tuesday in exchange for a 2018 conditional draft pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Smith has accumulated 4.5 sacks in 19 games over the course of his three-year NFL career and has mostly served as a backup, playing only 311 snaps during that span. The good news is that he is only 25 years old and has yet to play a full season, meaning there is a chance his full potential has not yet been unlocked. Smith will likely slide into a reserve role on the Bengals' defensive line behind Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson.
Smith (eye) was a full go at Wednesday's practice.
Smith has been dealing with an eye injury as of late, but looks like he will return to action in Week 13 and serve as a reserve option along the Jaguars' defensive line.
Smith (eye) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Bills, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.
Smith will in fact miss his third straight game due to his eye injury, but his absence won't have much of an impact with several options ahead of him on the depth chart at defensive end. Dante Fowler and Tyson Alualu are the Jaguars' projected starters at the position in Week 12.
