Falcons reach 3-year agreement to keep fullback Keith Smith
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Atlanta Falcons fullback Keith Smith agreed to a three-year contract extension Saturday.
Smith, who started five games and led the team with eight special teams tackles in 2019, was set to become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday.
The 27-year-old Smith signed with Atlanta early last season after he played in 16 games, including three starts, with the Raiders in 2018. He had five carries for eight yards and one catch for 13 years with the Falcons.
Smith signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent linebacker from San Jose State in 2014. He made the move to fullback and was a part-time starter for the Cowboys in 2016 and 2017.
