The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Department has decided not to file charges against Broncos DE Antonio Smith.
Smith was under investigation for some creepy alleged "sexual in nature" child abuse in May. The police department has apparently concluded its investigation, and Smith will report to Broncos camp this week. The versatile 33-year-old will likely play a big role while DE Derek Wolfe is suspended the first four weeks. Jul 28 - 8:10 PM

The complaint filed against Broncos DE Antonio Smith in November is "sexual in nature."

NBC Denver reported Thursday morning that Smith is being investigated for child abuse. The Fort Bend (Texas) County Sheriff's department conducted an investigation before passing its findings onto the DA's office in February. It's unclear if the DA plans to press charges. The Broncos say they are "aware" of the situation.

Broncos DE Antonio Smith is under investigation for alleged child abuse.

No charges have been filed as of now. "Our Sheriff's Office has received some information, they're working with our office to try and find out as much information as we can about the allegation," said John Healey Jr, DA of Fort Bend County. "At this particular point anything in reference to Mr. Smith is just that -- an allegation." Smith signed a one-year, $2M deal with the Broncos in April to serve as a situational pass rusher.

Broncos signed DL Antonio Smith, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Smith appeared headed back to Houston, but instead will remain in the AFC West. A versatile talent along the defensive line who can still generate some pass-rushing heat, Smith should serve as a situational pass rusher for Gary Kubiak's Broncos. Smith played for Kubiak in Houston. Smith played 791 snaps for the Raiders in 2014, a number that will likely be halved.
Apr 2 - 2:42 PM'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.

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.

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.
