Former Clemson DB signs with Seahawks

Former Clemson defensive back Robert Smith has signed a futures deal on Monday with the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks had claimed Smith off of waivers from the Colts back in August but he was waived soon after failing a team physical.

Smith had 182 tackles, six tackles for loss, one sack, four interceptions, seven passes defended in 53 games (26 starts) at Clemson.

Future contracts are a way for NFL teams to get players under contract for next season without it counting against the current salary cap or 53-man limit and the contracts don't go into effect until next season.

Official Clemson bio: Emerged as the team’s top safety in 2013 after serving as a backup in 2011 and 2012 ... was one of the defense’s leaders as a “quarterback” in the secondary ... had 182 tackles, six tackles for loss, one sack, two quarterback pressures, four interceptions for 28 yards, seven pass breakups, one caused fumble and three recovered fumbles in 1,641 snaps over 53 games (26 starts) in his career ... tied for fourth in school history in games ... two-time ACC Academic Honor Roll member.
