The Cincinnati Bengals acquired defensive end Chris Smith on Tuesday in a trade with Jacksonville for a conditional 2018 draft pick.
The 6-foot-1, 266-pound Smith was the Jaguars’ fifth-round pick out of Arkansas in 2014. He appeared in 19 games with 19 tackles, 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble in three seasons.

The Bengals got a look at Smith last year in their preseason game at Jacksonville when he played 17 snaps and recorded a sack of AJ McCarron in addition to dropping running back Bronson Hill for a 2-yard loss in the Jaguars’ 26-21 victory.
Smith’s first career sack also was against the Bengals when he dropped Andy Dalton in the first quarter of a game Cincinnati won 33-23 at Paul Brown Stadium on Nov. 2, 2014.
BENGALS DRAFT POSITION PREVIEWS:
The only other trade between Cincinnati and Jacksonville worked out pretty for the Bengals when they acquired 2007 first-round pick Reggie Nelson in 2010 for cornerback David Jones and a conditional draft pick.
Nelson went on to start 83 games with 23 interceptions and a Pro Bowl berth in six seasons in Cincinnati. Jones played two seasons in Jacksonville with five starts and one interception and was out of the league after the 2012 season.

The conditional pick, a seventh-rounder in 2012, was Jeris Pendleton, a defensive tackle from Ashland who played four games for the Jaguars in 2012 and one for the Colts in 2013.
