Ex-Packers linebacker Smith scooped up by Chargers
APR 25, 2013 3:57p ET
Smith's agent, Lamont Smith, announced the signing via Twitter.
Smith, the Packers' sixth-round pick in 2011, was surprisingly cut on Wednesday. He started six games for the Packers last season before tearing his ACL and being placed on injured reserve.
Smith was the Week 1 starter for Green Bay in 2012 because of a torn hamstring suffered by Desmond Bishop in the preseason.
In his six starts, Smith recorded two sacks and 39 tackles.
"San Diego here we come," Smith tweeted Thursday.
