Top Tremon Smith News

  • Broncos' Tremon Smith: Signs on with Broncos

    The Broncos agreed to terms with Smith on a two-year contract Wednesday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

    Listed as a defensive back, Smith rarely plays defense and makes his hay as a special teamer and return man. The Broncos will be his fifth team since he entered the league as a sixth-rounder with the Chiefs in 2018. Smith has one career kickoff return touchdown.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Steps up for depleted secondary

    Smith recorded 11 tackles (seven solo), one pass defended and a forced fumble in Sunday's 30-24 overtime loss against Kansas City.

    Smith stepped up in place of starting cornerback Steven Nelson, who was inactive Sunday after suffering a foot/knee injury during Week 16's loss to Dallas. This led the backup cornerback to play every defensive snap for the first time this season, and he was one of four Texans defenders to notch double-digit tackles against Kansas City. Smith exclusively played on special teams over the first 12 games of the season, and it's likely he'll revert back to this role after Nelson returned to practice in full Tuesday.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Two picks in loss

    Smith had three tackles and two interceptions in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Cowboys in Week 14.

    More noted for his value as a kickoff returner, Smith's work on defense made a big impact on what could have been a rare Houston win. His first pick set up a 28-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, and the second one put the team in business at the Dallas four-yard line late in the fourth. That could have sealed the deal for Houston, but the offense was unable to convert the opportunity into points, and Dallas went on to score the game-winning touchdown. The two interceptions were the first of Smith's career.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Handles return duties Saturday

    Smith returned one punt for 15 yards, one kickoff for 25 yards and one interception for 12 yards in Saturday's 17-13 preseason win over New Orleans.

    Smith's first-quarter pick set up the Texans' first score, and his punt return gave the offense good field position to attempt a field goal at the end of the half. His primary role is as a returner, and Smith will provide depth at cornerback, something head coach Lovie Smith reinforced following the game. "The more things you do, the better your chances," Smith said. "And Tremon is our returner. We know what he can do in that role. But when you say the more things you can do - to be able to do that and also play good ball at the cornerback position in a backup role is big for us." Smith also had one tackle on defense and another on special teams.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Gets turn at running back

    Smith did not have a kick return and had one carry as a running back for seven yards in Sunday's 41-29 win over the Chargers.

    Smith is a cornerback by trade as well as a kick returner, but he successfully lobbied Houston's coaches to try him at running back Sunday, per Aaron Wilson of 790 AM SportsTalk. His one carry was a significant one, a red zone touch that preceded four straight handoffs to Rex Burkhead, who eventually scored a touchdown. "We knew we were going to run some outside stuff on this team and we knew speed was important," Texans coach David Culley said. "Tremon runs very well and he's been asking for that anyway. So, we use him in that situation and obviously he helped us today." The Chargers wisely avoided kicking to Smith, who scored a touchdown last week on a kickoff return, and booted five kickoffs for touchbacks. The one kick in play was a pooch kick that landed nowhere near Smith. Burkhead is the established No. 1 running at this stage of the season, but Houston has just one back, Scottie Phillips (ankle), under contract next season. That means Smith could get work on offense over the final two games with an eye toward some type of role there next season.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Scores on kick return

    Smith had a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Jaguars. He finished with 121 return yards on two kicks.

    After the Jaguars responded to Houston's opening-drive touchdown with a field goal, Smith grabbed back the momentum with his electrifying kick return. It was the first touchdown in 66 career kickoff returns for Smith, who is averaging 29 yards per return for Houston in 2021.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Inks extension

    Smith signed a one-year, $1.6 million extension with the Texans on Friday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Smith is a reserve cornerback who's primarily played on special teams, most notably serving as the top kick returner after Houston released return specialist Andre Roberts mid-October. Over the last five games, the four-year veteran has returned six kicks for 156 yards, including a 28-yard kickoff return in last Sunday's lost to the Jets that set up a potential scoring opportunity in the fourth quarter.
