Raiders Sign Former Super Bowl MVP

Just two years after being named Super Bowl MVP, OLB Malcolm Smith will say goodbye to Seattle and ink a deal with the Oakland Raiders. 

Smith was a key component to Seattle's Super Bowl run; he was the one who intercepted Sherman's tipped-ball in the NFC Championship Game and also returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown in the Super Bowl. He earned his MVP trophy due to the Seahawks' complete-scourge of the Broncos in SB XLVIII. Smith was the first defensive player to be named MVP of the Super Bowl in a decade (Dexter Jackson).

Despite having such huge success in such a small sample-size, Smith was never able to penetrate the starting lineup. Maybe those highlight-plays don't accurately depict Malcolm Smith- Pro Football Focus rated him as the fifth worst 4-3 OLB in the NFL.

The brother of former Giants' wide-receiver Steve Smith, the Raiders hope he is able to bring his football pedigree and winning-culture acquired in Seattle to the Golden State.

Smith could potentially play opposite of sophmore-sensation Khalil Mack or be a key backup player for the rebuilding Oakland Raiders.
