In his first three seasons in the CFL Smith was primarily utilized as a rotational player on the defensive line. He appeared in 38 games, contributing 26 tackles and 8 quarterback sacks. In September 2016 he was suspended for violating the leagues drug policy after testing positive for a banned substance (Methandienone).[4] Following the 2016 CFL season he was re-signed by the Stampeders in January 2017; about a month before becoming a free agent.[5]
