Smith, a 5'11" 218 pound back out of Louisville, is entering his fourth year in the NFL. In three years with the Chiefs, he rushed for 540 yards and three touchdowns.
A back with a good combination of size and speed (4.50 40 yard dash at 2007 NFL Scouting Combine), Smith will provide the Broncos with some good competition at the running back position heading into training camp. At Louisville, Smith rushed for 1,698 yards and 16 touchdowns while splitting time with backs like Michael Bush, Lionel Gates, and Eric Shelton.
Smith was drafted by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, and finished the 2009 season on the Chiefs' injured reserve.
The Broncos also waived linebacker Korey Bosworth and punter A.J. Trapasso.
