Chiefs sign defensive tackle Shaun Smith

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free agent defensive tackle
Shaun Smith, who played last season for Cincinnati.

The Chiefs announced the deal Wednesday but declined to disclose
terms.

The 6-foot-2, 325-pound Smith has played in 63 games, including
27 starts, with New Orleans, Cincinnati and Cleveland. He has 196
tackles and two sacks during a career that began with the Saints in
2004.

Smith began his NFL career as a rookie free agent in 2003 with
Dallas, where he was a member of the practice squad. After one year
with New Orleans, he played for the Bengals from 2004 through 2006
and the Browns for two years before returning to Cincinnati last
year.
