Report: Raiders to Sign DE Chris Smith

According to his agent, the former Browns defensive end Chris Smith is signing a one-year contract with the Las Vegas Raiders.


While many opined for the likes of Jadeveon Clowney or Yannick Ngakoue, reports this morning indicated the Raiders are signing defensive end Chris Smith to a one-year deal. No official announcement from the Raiders has been made.

Smith was waived by the Browns this past December and then was signed by the Carolina Panthers in March, only to be released July 31st.

Chris Smith has 67 tackles, and 4.5 sacks over the course of his career.

In 2018, Smith started two games for Cleveland recording two sacks and 21 combined tackles. In 2019 for the Browns, Smith played in nine games and recorded just one tackle.

The Raiders are looking to add depth to their young defense.

No word yet on a corresponding roster move by Las Vegas to get to the 80-man limit set by the NFL.

Scott Gulbransen is an accomplished broadcasting, social media, public relations, writing pro, and thought leader and the founder, host and executive producer of Silver and Black Today on the Raiders flagship station Raider Nation Radio in Las Vegas. He has managed and led public relations, social media and digital marketing at some of America's largest brands and is the former Global Head of Digital Content at Haymon Boxing, creators of the Premier Boxing Champions series.
