The Cleveland Browns added more secondary depth on Tuesday with the signing of cornerback Prince Smith Jr. to the practice squad.
The move brings the practice squad back to the maximum of 16 players.
The 5-foot-10 and 198-pound Smith originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles this past spring as an undrafted free agent from New Hampshire. He was released by the Eagles on August 7 and then spent the rest of training camp with the New York Giants. Smith was released by the Giants during the final roster cuts in September.
Smith played 35 games for the Wildcats, making 29 starts over his final three seasons. He finished his collegiate career with 193 tackles, 11 interceptions and 37 pass breakups.
During his senior season in 2019, Smith was selected as the team’s most outstanding defensive player after a season where he had 64, tackles, three interceptions and seven pass breakups.
His freshman year, Smith was selected as the Colonial Athletic Association Defensive Rookie of the Year after leading the team with five interceptions.
