Schwartz on Shaun Smith

    DT Shaun Smith, who was released by the Cleveland Browns, visited the Lions’ practice facility today.
   His arrival came before the injury that ended the season of defensive end Jared DeVries who ruptured an Achilles tendon at practice.
     “I think (Shaun Smith’s) talent fits us and I think that whether we can get something done or not, we’re still in the beginning stages. We wanted to get to know him. We wanted to give him a physical. There’s a lot more that goes past that but I think it was important to get to know him a little bit and have him get to know us a little bit,’’ coach Jim Schwartz said.
   Smith was released Saturday after he clashed with Browns defensive line coach Bryan Cox on Friday, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
   Also last December Smith reportedly punched quarterback Brady Quinn in the face.
