Smart (6-1, 295) was most recently with the Browns practice squad after stints with the Rams (2017-19) and Bills (2020). He was a sixth-round pick of the Rams in 2017 and has totaled 20 tackles in 31 games.

Castillo (5-11, 184) comes from the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League and was a CFL All-Star in 2019. He's played in 38 games in the CFL and averaged 44.4 yards per punt and converted on 87% of his field goals with a long on 57.
