The Houston Texans have signed free agent defensive end Antonio Smith.

Smith appeared in each regular season game and started three of
four playoff games for the NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals last
season.

The Texans, who announced the deal Saturday, needed someone to
start opposite 2006 top overall pick Mario Williams after releasing
Anthony Weaver earlier this week.

Weaver had one sack in his three years in Houston, and the
Texans need a pass-rush threat at the second end position.

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound Smith had 41 tackles and 3½ sacks this
season and has 125 tackles and 14½ sacks in his five-year career.

He had eight tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble
recovery in the Super Bowl.
