D'Anthony Smith trade: Jaguars send DT to Seahawks for draft pick

The Jaguars have traded the former third round pick for an undisclosed 2014 NFL Draft pick.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded fourth-year defensive tackle to the Seattle Seahawks, the team announced on Saturday evening. Smith was originally listed as "released" by the Jaguars during roster cut downs, but the cut wasn't official until 6 p.m. ET on Saturday and he ended up heading to the Seahawks.

Smith, 25, was originally a third-round draft for the Jaguars in the 2010 NFL Draft. It was originally the plan for Smith to pair with Tyson Alualu on the inside to rush the passer, but early on Smith ruptured his Achilles tendon and missed the season on injured reserve, landing in the same place in 2011 with another injury.

Smith played in just six games for the Jaguars in 2012 despite poor interior line play, but looked like he'd found a niche in Gus Bradley's defense as a three-technique defensive tackle. The Seahawks run a similar defense, so they might think they can get an emerging player on the cheap.

The Jaguars in return received an undisclosed draft pick, likely a conditional late round pick.
