Anthony Smith, a once promising Pittsburgh Steelers safety, is retiring after playing for five teams in the past four seasons, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Saturday.
Smith was a third-round draft pick of the Steelers in 2006. In his first two seasons, he combined for 97 tackles and four interceptions.
His career went on a downslide after he unsuccessfully guaranteed a win over the New England Patriots in December 2007. The Steelers lost the game 34-13.
The 28-year-old played 76 games in six seasons, including 19 starts.
