ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Thursday agreed to terms with free-agent defensive lineman Antonio Smith on a one-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

Smith (6-3, 290 pounds) is a 12th-year player who appeared in 156 career regular-season games (133 starts) with Arizona (2004-08), Houston (2009-13) and Oakland (2014) during his first 11 seasons. He entered the NFL with the Cardinals as a fifth-round selection (135th overall) in the 2004 NFL Draft from Oklahoma State University.

His career regular-season totals include 303 tackles (230 solo), 44.5 sacks (277.5 yds.), eight passes defensed, 11 forced fumbles and 11 fumble recoveries. He also owns 19 tackles (17 solo), three sacks (18 yds.), one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in eight postseason games played (7 starts).

Smith started at least 15 games in each of his last six campaigns and is one of just eight NFL players to produce multiple sacks in every season since 2005.

He posted 27 of his 44.5 career sacks during his five seasons in Houston, where he played for Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak and Defensive Line Coach Bill Kollar. Smith was named to the Pro Bowl in 2011 after opening all 16 games for the Texans and producing 6.5 sacks for the league’s No. 2-ranked defensive unit (285.7 ypg).

Smith started two seasons at Oklahoma State after transferring from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. In 24 games for the Cowboys, he totaled 60 tackles (30 solo), 8.5 sacks, seven quarterback pressures and three pass deflections.

An all-city selection at John Marshall High School in Oklahoma City, Smith was born on Oct. 21, 1981.
