Biography

PRO: As soon as the 2011 free agency period began, the Titans wasted little time signing veteran defensive tackle Shaun Smith.  The 6-foot-2-inch, 325-pounder provides a strong run-stopping presence in the middle of the defensive line.  Although he has valuable experience playing defensive end in a 3-4 system, the South Carolina product will line up inside with the Titans.  Prior to arriving in Tennessee, Smith spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs (2010), Cincinnati Bengals (2009, 2004-2006), Cleveland Browns (2007-2008) and New Orleans Saints (2004).

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
• In 2010, Smith played in all 16 games with 10 starts for the Chiefs and notched 34 tackles, a sack and a pass defensed.
• In 2007 with the Browns, Smith appeared in 15 games with 10 starts and recorded career-highs with 63 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and two passes defensed. 

TITANS TIDBITS: 
• Smith enjoys hot yoga and credits the activity for helping him lose 15 pounds heading into the 2012 season.  In May 2012, he instructed two classes at Hot Yoga Plus in Nashville with proceeds going to his foundation, which benefits at-risk youth.  In order to teach classes, Smith had to go through a 200-hour teacher training.
• In 2011, Smith opened his own barber shop in North Dallas called Studio 30/30.  During Easter 2012, Smith donated 500 gift baskets to kids in the barber shop’s neighborhood.  On June 25, 2012, the barber shop gave kids free haircuts if they brought in one of their books from Smith’s “Click for Kids” program.
