. . . Otis Smith (American football) . . .

Smith attended East Jefferson High School in the late 1980s.

Originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a rookiefree agent in 1990. He spent five seasons with the team before joining the New York Jets in 1995. He signed with the New England Patriots in 1996, starting nine games, including the playoffs and Super Bowl XXXI loss to the Green Bay Packers. During his first stint with the Patriots, Smith was perhaps best remembered by Patriots fans for recovering a fumble in the 1996 AFC Title Game against the Jaguars. Smith returned it 47 yards for a touchdown which make the score 20–6 and effectively put the game away, pushing the Patriots to their second ever Super Bowl appearance.

He rejoined the Jets in 1997 and was re-signed by New England just before the 2000 season. Smith was a contributor to the Patriots winning the Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002, when his interception set up a key field goal against the St. Louis Rams.

He retired as a member of the New England Patriots on May 18, 2005.

The last team he played for was the Detroit Lions in the 2003 season.
