CLEVELAND (AP) — Za'Darius Smith has made three Pro Bowls without playing his natural position. An outside linebacker the past eight seasons, Smith will return to his college spot as a defensive end in a 4-3 scheme with Cleveland. The Browns acquired the 30-year-old earlier this month in a trade from the Minnesota Vikings. Smith is excited by his fresh start and a chance to play on a line with All-Pro Myles Garrett. Smith has 54 1/2 career sacks, but his only goal now it to add a Super Bowl title to his resume.
