He’ll move to his new destination just a few months before his 31st birthday, joining a Browns defense that has invested in its front, but needed a starting-quality rusher opposite Garrett. Smith will also bring plenty of AFC North playing experience, where he cut his NFL teeth with the Ravens from 2015-2018. This is a huge day for me, Young said, via the team website. “This is my first day of practice, which was a lot of fun. I wanted to set the tone.
