Smith was elected to his position in March of 2009 and led the NFLPA through a pretty harrowing time: one of the most public and fiery labor stoppages in NFL history.
Per Albert Breer of the NFL Network, ex-President Kevin Mawae stood up at the NFLPA meeting and made it quite clear that the union should get behind Smith.
"De's our guy. Anyone gonna motion to re-affirm now, instead of waiting?" Mawae said.
Breer reports that "one player motioned ... another player seconded [and] they voted unanimously."
The news of Smith's reelection was first broken by ... Jay Feely.
