Smith spent the entire 2018 season as a free agent after being released by the Jets in July. The 2015 second-round pick out of Ohio State has recorded 10 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown across 14 games in his NFL career. A pair of ACL tears have done damage to Smith's former explosiveness, and he'll likely need to impress in other areas this offseason for any chance of carving out a depth role.
Smith worked out for the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Smith, a 2015 second-round draft pick out of Ohio State, has been a free agent since getting released by the Jets in July. Houston could be looking for additional depth at wideout in the event Keke Coutee's hamstring injury sidelines him for this week and beyond. Smith has recorded 10 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown over 14 career NFL regular-season games.
The Jets released Smith (knee) on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
A 2015 second-round pick, Smith suited up in just 14 games during his three seasons with the Jets, with only four of those appearances coming in the last two years. A pair of ACL tears were the main culprits in Smith's demise, as the knee injuries robbed him of some of the explosiveness that made him a dangerous downfield threat during his college days at Ohio State. The 26-year-old is still working his way back from April 2017 knee surgery and will probably need to impress in workouts before another team signs him to a contract.
