Minnesota is restructuring Smith's contract, putting him in line to return for his 13th NFL season, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Smith turned 35 in February, but he'll apparently be coming back for at least one more campaign anyways. Provided his playing time isn't cut drastically, he could be a candidate to return fringe IDP value in 2024.

Sees career high in snaps

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-14

Smith recorded 93 tackles (60 solo) and three sacks, passes defended and forced fumbles during the 2023 campaign.

Smith was once again productive in his 12th NFL season, all with the Vikings. His three sacks matched his career best, while his three forced fumbles also equaled his career-high mark from 2019. Smith will turn 35 in February but remains under contract for two more seasons.

Clear to play at Detroit

Smith (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Detroit, Matthew Coller of reports.

Despite unexpectedly popping up on the Vikings' injury report during the week, Smith will be available in Week 18. He's 10 total tackles Sunday away from the second 100-tackle season of his career.

Limited at practice Thursday

Smith (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

Smith unexpectedly popped up on the Vikings' injury report Wednesday with a shoulder injury, and now he's hobbled at their first practice of the new week. He'll likely have to upgrade to full participation Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

Tending to shoulder injury

Smith (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report.

It's unclear when Smith picked up the shoulder issue, but that he practiced Wednesday indicates that it's probably not serious. If he can upgrade to full participation at practice Thursday or Friday, he'll likely avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

Fives tackles in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-02

Smith had five tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Packers.

It's the third straight game Smith has registered five total tackles. He played 65 snaps on defense Sunday, but he didn't play every single defensive snap for the first time since Week 3 against the Chargers. The 2012 first-round pick out of Notre Dame has 90 tackles (57 solo), including 3.0 sacks, two passes defended and three forced fumbles in 16 games this season.

Six tackles in win

Smith registered six tackles (five solo) in Minnesota's 24-10 win against the Packers on Sunday.

Smith finished fifth on the team in tackles en route to holding Jordan Love and the rest of Green Bay's offense to just 10 points. The 2012 first-round pick has now recorded 55 tackles (34 solo) this season and has logged six or more in all but two games.

Double-digit tackles in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-10

Smith recorded 10 tackles (seven tackles) in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Chiefs.

Smith was able to log double-digit takedowns for the second straight game. The strong safety is now up to 38 tackles, including three sacks, while also forcing two fumbles over the first five contests of the season.

Stuffs the box score

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-02

Smith had 14 tackles (eight solo), three sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 21-13 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Smith arguably had the best statistical performance of his six-time Pro Bowl career in Week 4. His 14 combined tackles were a single-game best, as were his three sacks. In fact, the 12-year pro has never had more than three sacks in a single season. His forced fumble was also significant, coming on one of his three sacks of Bryce Young, which was then scooped up by D.J. Wonnum and taken in for a touchdown that gave the Vikings a 14-13 lead late in the third quarter. Smith now has 28 tackles (17 solo) in the 2023 campaign and will work to keep that momentum rolling in Week 5 against the Chiefs.
