NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Antonio Smith's potential reunion with the Texans "could move quickly."
There appears to be mutual interest in a homecoming for Smith, who spent 2009-13 in Houston. He'd serve as a situational pass rusher for Romeo Crennel's defense, likely playing drastically fewer snaps than the 791 he gave Oakland last season. Mar 31 - 7:00 PM

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans are interested in a reunion with free agent DL Antonio Smith.

Cut loose by the Raiders on Tuesday, Smith spent 2009-13 with the Texans. DC Romeo Crennel reportedly wanted to re-sign Smith before he headed to Oakland on a two-year deal. A defensive tackle for the Raiders, Smith would likely be returning to end for the Texans.
Mar 31 - 5:24 PM

Raiders released DL Antonio Smith.

The move clears $4 million in cap space, which, of course, the Raiders don't need. Going on 34, Smith was heading into the second season of a two-year deal. Smith started all 16 games last season, but was a nonentity. He generated just three sacks in 791 snaps, and struggled mightily against the run. Smith's durability and scheme versatility — he played tackle in 2014, but has extensive experience at end — should earn him a market despite his age and underwhelming Oakland "tenure." The Raiders' 2014 free-agent class is shaping up as one of the worst of all time.
Mar 31 - 3:11 PM

Raiders DT Antonio Smith (undisclosed surgery) has been cleared for training camp.

Smith was injured in a May weight-room "mishap," the extent of which the Raiders never revealed. He'll start at defensive tackle this season.

Raiders DT Antonio Smith (undisclosed surgery) isn't participating in OTAs.

Smith is recovering from minor surgery after suffering a weight-room mishap earlier this month. It's unclear when he'll return, but all signs point toward Smith being ready for training camp.

Raiders DT Antonio Smith needed minor surgery following a recent weight room mishap.

The team did not provide any details on what the surgery entailed or exactly how Smith got hurt. All they said is that he's "fine." Smith will be an interior rusher for the Raiders' revamped defensive line this season.

ESPN's Paul Gutierrez confirms the Raiders plan to use Antonio Smith at defensive tackle this season.

Smith was a 3-4 end with the Texans, but will move inside in Oakland's base 4-3. The Raiders are expected to use Smith in a Lamarr Houston role, allowing him to focus on creating pressure as an interior pass rusher. Smith has 27 sacks over the last five seasons, but is a liability against the run.

Raiders signed DL Antonio Smith, formerly of the Texans, to a two-year, $9 million contract.

Smith racked up 27 sacks over the last five seasons playing right end in Houston's 3-4 scheme, but may have to move inside in the Raiders' base 4-3 defense. Even at 32, Smith is an above average interior pass rusher and, along with new additions LaMarr Woodley and Justin Tuck, should improve an Oakland pass-rushing unit that struggled to get to the quarterback in 2013.
Fri, Mar 14, 2014 07:55:00 PM

Free agent DE Antonio Smith will visit the Redskins before also making trips to St. Louis, Tennessee, and Oakland.

Washington gets the first crack at the 32-year-old. He can play in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense but has spent the past five seasons in Houston's 3-4 scheme as the right end. The Redskins could stand to upgrade over Stephen Bowen and Jarvis Jenkins. The Titans are implementing a 3-4.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 06:23:00 PM

Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 Phoenix reports free agent DL Antonio Smith is drawing interest from the Falcons, Panthers, and Bucs.

The NFC South is hot after Smith, who also hasn't closed the door on a return to Houston. Smith, 32, can play in both 4-3 and 3-4 defenses as an interior pass rusher. He's racked up a respectable 27 sacks over the last five seasons.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 10:52:00 AM

Free agent DE Antonio Smith reportedly has two visits lined up and four teams interested.

Smith's market has been nothing but crickets so far, so his agent is stirring the pot on the eve of free agency. Still, we're not surprised there's significant interest. Although Smith is 32 years old, he's missed a total of two games over the last five seasons while picking up 27 sacks during that span. He's an asset as an interior pass rusher in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. The Titans are expected to be in the mix.

Texans RE Antonio Smith suffered a sprained knee in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

The severity of Smith's injury is unclear. For now, he should be considered day to day. Smith is having a fine season opposite J.J. Watt, notching five sacks while grading out as the No. 13 3-4 end in Pro Football Focus' ratings.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 04:56:00 PM

The NFL has denied the appeal of Texans RE Antonio Smith's suspension.

The "suspension" is for two preseason games and the season opener, though only the latter is meaningful. Preseason suspensions are a joke. Smith, 31, will be back in Week 2. Although Smith is an effective player, the Texans shouldn't miss a beat with Jared Crick or Tim Jamison starting against the Chargers.
Fri, Aug 23, 2013 02:13:00 PM

Texans RE Antonio Smith will have his suspension appeal heard Thursday.

The NFL will rule on Smith's appeal before Sunday's preseason matchup with the Saints. Smith was suspended for the remainder of August and the Week 1 opener for ripping off Dolphins LG Richie Incognito's helmet and swinging it at Incognito's face. We highly doubt Smith will win his appeal.
Wed, Aug 21, 2013 11:12:00 PM

NFL suspended Texans RE Antonio Smith for Week 1.

Smith has also been banned for the remainder of preseason for his attack on Dolphins LG Richie Incognito in Saturday's exhibition game. The Texans open the season on Monday Night Football against the Chargers. The Bolts' swinging gate offensive line means Smith's absence shouldn't be too large a factor for Houston. Either Jared Crick or Tim will start in Smith's absence.
