The Oakland Raiders have signed DL Antonio Smith.

The Texans lose yet another player. With all the losses, I'm pretty sure Bill O'Brien will start combing amateur football games for bodies.

Re-upping Smith, however, was never going to happen. While he's been a wonderful addition to the squad, Smith definitely lost a step or two during the 2013 season, not showing his same explosiveness. During the second half of the season, he collected only half a sack. But he's a huge loss in the locker room, and his Ninja persona will be forever loved.

So long, Ninja, and thanks for all the sacks.
