Packers Acquire S Smith In Trade With Jacksonville, Place Finley On IR

Posted Oct 18, 2010

The Green Bay Packers have acquired S Anthony Smith from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a conditional draft choice and placed TE Jermichael Finley on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.


Smith, a 6-foot, 200-pound fifth-year player out of Syracuse, has played in 59 career games with 19 starts. Drafted in the third round (83rd overall) by Pittsburgh in 2006, he appeared in 46 games with 14 starts in three seasons (2006-08) with the Steelers. Smith signed with the Packers as a free agent in March 2009 but was released in the final roster cutdown in September. He played for St. Louis and Jacksonville during the 2009 season and had appeared in three games with three starts for the Jaguars this season. Smith will wear No. 27.

Finley sustained a knee injury in Week 5 at Washington.
