BRONCOS AGREE TO TERMS WITH FREE-AGENT G SHELLEY SMITH ON TWO-YEAR CONTRACT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Friday agreed to terms with free agent guard Shelley Smith on a two-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

Smith (6-4, 310 pounds) is a sixth-year player who spent his first five NFL seasons with Houston (2010-11), St. Louis (2012-13) and Miami (2014) after being selected by the Texans in the sixth round (187th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from Colorado State University.

He has appeared in 36 career regular-season games, combining for 11 starts at both guard positions. Smith has helped block for two 1,000-yard rushers (Steven Jackson – 1,045 in 2012 and Lamar Miller – 1,099 in 2014) while allowing only 7.5 sacks.

Smith spent his rookie season in 2010 competing on Houston’s practice squad and active roster and was placed on injured reserve (ankle) for his 2011 campaign. He made his NFL debut with St. Louis in 2012 and went on to start 6-of-11 games played that year.

A two-time All-Mountain West Conference selection, Smith started 31-of-36 games played during his collegiate career at CSU. He attended Westview High School in Avondale, Ariz., and was born on May 21, 1987.
