Smith has only one carry in three seasons with the Falcons. Playing primarily on special teams, Smith appeared in 13 games in 2012 and had four tackles.
The Falcons released three veterans, including running back Michael Turner, on Friday. Jacquizz Rodgers, the team's second-leading rusher last season, could have a more prominent role in 2013. The team is expected to look for help at running back through free agency or the draft.
The Falcons also released defensive end John Abraham and cornerback Dunta Robinson on Friday.
