According to a report, the Oakland Raiders are bringing in another defensive lineman for a visit, with defensive end Antonio Smith scheduled to meet with Raiders’ officials.
Smith was a Pro Bowler in 2011 with the Texans and in 15 games for Houston last season had five sacks, a forced fumble and 30 tackles. The one game he missed in 2013 was due to a suspension for Week 1 after an incident in a preseason game in which he removed the helmet of Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito and swung it at him (and, hey, given Incognito’s reportedly award-winning personality, who wouldn’t, right?)
The 32-year-old has played five seasons each with the Cardinals and Texans in his career and has 41.5 sacks in his 10-year career.
He was a fifth-round pick by Arizona in 2004 out of Oklahoma State and after notching 14.5 sacks as a part-time starter in five seasons, he signed as a free agent with Houston in 2009.
