Nashville, Tenn. - On the brink of elimination, former Tiger defensive back Ahmaad Smith survived the cut after winning a one-on-one drill on "4th and Long".
Smith defeated Philadelphia Soul wide receiver Steve Gonzalez, 3-2, in single competition. The contest played the deciding factor for the judges and Gonzalez was cut. Seven contestants remain including four defensive backs and three wide receivers.
4th and Long airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. on Spike TV and is hosted by former Dallas Cowboy pro bowler and NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin.
The show, filmed at the Cotton Bowl, began airing on May 18th and featured 12 athletes (six defensive backs, six wide receivers) ranging from the collegiate, semi-pro, and Arena Football League ranks. The winner after the ten episodes will fill the last remaining spot on the Dallas Cowboys' 80-man roster.
