Antonio Smith latest pass rusher signed by Raiders

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders are collecting pass rushers now. First it was Justin Tuck, then Lamarr Woodley, and now Antonio Smith has signed on to play for the Raiders -- each of them receiving 2-year deals. Smith's deal is 2-years, $9 million.

Smith has been the full time starter for the Houston Texans the last five seasons, making the Pro Bowl in 2011.

The 6-4 289 pound defensive end is entering his 11th season in the league. He spent his first five season in Arizona after the Cardinals made him their fifth round pick in the 2004 draft.

With the previous additions of Tuck and Woodley, it's very possible Smith will slide inside to right defensive tackle. But his experience gives him the versatility the Raiders like to keep him in the game at defensive end in 3-4 alignments or to shuffle around the line.

In the past five seasons with the Texans, Smith has missed just one game.
