The Seattle Seahawks acquired defensive tackle D’Anthony Smith from the Jacksonville Jaguars shortly before the final NFL roster cutdown, and they’ve liked what they’ve seen from the reserve DT thus far. They’ve enjoyed him so muchthat the team is already giving him a contract extension.

 

Smith was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He spent his first two NFL seasons on injured reserve. He missed his rookie season because of an Achilles tendon injury he suffered during training camp, and missed the 2011 season because of a toe injury.

He registered his first career tackle in the Jaguars’ 2012 season opener against the Minnesota Vikings. He was placed on injured reserve on November 28, 2012. Smith was later traded to the Seattle Seahawks on August 31, 2013 for a conditional draft pick.

Smith appeared in eight games last season for the Jaguars, who intended to waive him if a deal wasn’t reached. He’s been a solid rotational d-lineman for a defense that needs d-line help.
