Smith, who was a second team All-Pro last season, is excited about being a "Cowboy for Life", and the team knows what they have in the Trojan great. 

"We talk about building a program and building a football team and he was the first player that we took three years ago in that draft," head coach Jason Garrett said. "He's just been everything we've wanted to build this program and this team around.

"His work ethic is fantastic. His mental and physical toughness are as good as I've been around. He just continues to grow and develop as a player. Technically he's getting better. He's getting bigger and stronger. And he's just tough, competitive. He's what you want on your football team at a really, really important position."
