Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith says he wants to stay with the club beyond his current contract, which expires at the end of the season, according to Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston.
Smith was originally a fifth-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2004, but has been with the Texans since signing there as a free agent in 2009. Smith, 31, has 13.5 sacks over the past two seasons in Houston.
According to Berman, Smith said, "I told them I wanted 2 be here & I wanted to spend the rest of my career here. They told me they are open to doing an extension."
