The ninth-year player has spent the last three seasons with Cleveland. He played in 12 games last year, starting two, and had 13 catches for 47 yards. He missed three games because of a concussion.
Smith was Tampa Bay's third-round draft pick in 2005. He played for the Buccaneers through 2008 before moving to Philadelphia. He has started 55 games through his career, catching 160 passes with 12 touchdowns.
