The Jaguars added two defensive backs to the roster on Thursday. The team signed veteran cornerback Josh Robinson and safety Anthony “Fish” Smithson.
Smithson went undrafted in 2017 out of Kansas. He signed on with the Redskins following the draft, where he spent most of that year on the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster in late December and appeared in two games.
He was waived by the Redskins before the 2018 season and then spent time with the Cardinals and was most recently on the Chargers’ practice squad. At 5’11”, 196 pounds, the man that goes by Fish is likely competing for a practice squad spot. Note: Smithson got a pick in his first practice with the team on Friday.
The Vikings originally drafted Josh Robinson in the third round of the 2012 draft out of UCF. He spent four seasons in Minnesota, appearing in 47 games. In ‘16 and ‘17 he played in 27 games for the Buccaneers. Robinson most recently played for the Saints, appearing in 11 games in 2018. With seven seasons under his belt and five interceptions, Robinson has more experience than any of the other Jaguars’ backups at cornerback. He’ll be fighting for one of the last roster spots on the 53.
The Jaguars roster now stands at 90 players.
