Giants Ink Former Cowboys Backup RB Rod Smith

The Giants added depth to the running back spot on Wednesday, signing former Dallas Cowboys running back Rod Smith.

The 27-year-old joined the Cowboys in 2015 and has served as a back-up to workhorse running back Ezekiel Elliott for the majority of his four-year NFL career.

He entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State.

Smith visited the Bengals before signing with the Giants. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound ball-carrier had 127 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries in 16 games last season.

Smith started in the Cowboys’ regular-season finale against the Giants, rushing for 35 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in a 36-35 victory.
