Marcus Smith to Sign With Seahawks 2 Days After Being Cut by Eagles

It didn't take Marcus Smith long to find a new home, and he landed in a pretty good spot: Seattle.

Smith, released by the Eagles on Wednesday after three disappointing seasons, tweeted out Friday morning, "12th man let's get it, God is so good!"

Seattle fans are commonly referred to as the "12th Man," so you do the math.

Shortly after Smith's tweet, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Smith will sign with the Seahawks.

The Eagles drafted Smith 26th overall in 2014 and yet he never started a game. In 37 games with the Birds, he had just 24 tackles and four sacks. 

Smith and Jerome McDougle are the Eagles' only first-round picks since 1960 who never started a game for them. And of 630 total NFL first-round picks from 1995 through 2014, Smith is one of just 13 to never start a game.
