#Cowboys add another LB, signing Will Smith (Texas Tech) – drafted by Dallas in 7th round of the 2014 NFL Draft. @1053thefan
On May 14, 2015, he was released after rookie minicamp to make room for tryout linebacker Donnie Baggs.
Smith played his college ball at Texas Tech, and lined up next to Terrance Bullitt. Bullitt was viewed as the better linebacker but suffered an injury during the draft process.
