The former fifth-round pick spent the 2017 season in Cincinnati.
CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are expected to agree to terms with free agent defensive end Chris Smith, according to FoxSports.com’s Peter Schrager.
A 2014 fifth-round pick, Smith spent the first three seasons of his career as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars before being traded to the Cincinnati Bengals a year in ago. Appearing in all 16 games for the Bengals, the 6-foot-1, 266-pound player recorded 26 tackles, 3 sacks and 2 passes defended, according to NFL.com.
With the Browns returning defensive ends Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah, it is likely that the Arkansas product is coming to Cleveland to play a reserve role. That could mean less playing time — or potential roster cuts — for either of the Browns’ current two backup defensive ends, Nate Orchard and Carl Nassib.
