Sources told RodPedersen.com on Friday the Edmonton Eskimos have added the 24-year old free agent quarterback.
The Salem, OR product and former Wyoming Cowboy spent all of 2015 and training camp in 2016 with the Saskatchewan Roughriders before being released in June.
The 6'1", 206 lb slinger became a fan favourite in Saskatchewan despite his 1-7 record as a starter. In his last appearance, Smith came off the bench in Week 18 of 2015 at Montreal to rally the club to an overtime victory.
After being released by the Riders, Smith subsequently spent part of the 2016 CFL season on the Ottawa RedBlacks' practice roster.
Smith's football resume also includes stints in Tampa Bay (NFL), Toronto (CFL) and San Jose (AFL).
The Eskimos currently have three quarterbacks on their roster: Mike Reilly, James Franklin and Jordan Lynch.
They released veteran pivot Thomas Demarco earlier in December.
