The San Francisco 49ers have officially signed former Oakland Raiders linebacker Malcolm Smith to a five-year deal. The agreement between Smith and the 49ers was reported on Wednesday, but could not become official until after the start of free agency at 1 p.m. on Thursday.

Smith, 27, was a seventh-round selection out of the University of Southern California by the Seattle Seahawks in 2011. He won Super Bowl XLVIII with Seattle and was voted the MVP of the game.

In March of 2015, Smith signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Raiders. Smith played in 31 games – starting 30 – over the past two seasons in Oakland. During that timeframe, he had 225 tackles, four sacks, nine passes defended, two interceptions, and four forced fumbles.
