Released by the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, linebacker D.J. Smith obviously had little problem finding a suitor for his suddenly available services.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Smith signed with the San Diego Chargers Thursday.

A former fifth-round pick in 2011, Smith made nine starts over two seasons with the Packers and tallied 82 tackles, two sacks, five pass breakups and one interception.
Smith's career hit a bump in Week 6 of last season, when he tore his ACL and missed the rest of 2012. He failed a physical with the Packers and was released.
Just 24 years old, Smith could be a candidate for the PUP list in San Diego to start next season.
