Antonio DeShonta Smith (born October 21, 1981), nicknamed the Ninja Assassin, is an American football defensive end for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Oklahoma State University, and was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2004 NFL Draft. Smith has also played for the Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders.
Smith was drafted 135th overall in the 2004 NFL Draft and was the starting left defensive end. During the 2008 NFL Season, Smith played in every game and had 2 forced fumbles and 3.5 sacks. Despite a great performance during the course of the season, the Cardinals chose not to re-sign him and let him go into free agency.
In 2013, Smith was suspended for week one after an incident in the preseason in which he removed Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito's helmet and swung it at him. On November 29, 2013, he was fined $15,750 for hitting Jacksonville Jaguars' quarterback Chad Henne in the head and neck region.
