Jaguars linebacker Daryl Smith has signed a contract extension with the team. Length and terms of the extension are undisclosed. Smith, who completed his third season with the Jaguars in 2006, started all 16 games last season. He led the team with a career-high 170 tackles.
Smith began the season at outside linebacker for the first five games, but moved to the middle when Mike Peterson was lost for final 11 games. He posted at least 10 tackles in nine of his 16 games and recorded three sacks and one interception. He did not miss a snap in 13 of the 16 games.
The 6-2, 244-pound linebacker has started 45 of his 47 career games after being selected by the Jaguars in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Georgia Tech. He has registered 365 career tackles (218 solo), nine sacks, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.
