Smith was one of the picks made during Chip Kelly’s era of roster control and has regularly been pointed to as proof the Eagles made a mistake by giving their former head coach personnel power.
The 25-year-old didn’t earn a single start in his three seasons, producing four sacks and 23 tackles over 37 games played. He had one year remaining on his rookie contract as the Eagles didn’t pick up his fifth-year option.
The team also released veteran guard Allen Barbre.
