A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Smith earned two Super Bowl rings with the Steelers.

Early yearsEdit

Smith attended Arizona State University, where he was an All-American first-team selection in 1999, having only allowed one sack all season. He earned a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies.

Professional careerEdit

Pittsburgh SteelersEdit

Smith was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round (38th overall) in the 2000 NFL Draft. He was selected to represent the AFC in the 2005 Pro Bowl for the first time after winning Super Bowl XL. Smith was considered by many to be one of the most important players on the Steelers' offensive line. Unfortunately, back injuries hampered him at the end of 2007 and limited him to a handful of games in 2008. The Steelers chose not to re-sign him after his 2003, 6-year, $26 million contract lapsed in the 2009 offseason.[1]

San Francisco 49ersEdit

An unrestricted free agent after the 2008 season, Smith agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers on March 27, 2009. The deal contained a maximum value of $10.5 million.[2] Smith announced his retirement on August 28.[3][4]
