    Smith actualy does have quality CB experience. The word is Minnesota is pursuing him to play the nickel spot. I personally don't understand our seeming lack of interest in the guy. He could help our D alot.

  2. We don't need another safety. Plus, it's not like he's that great.

    "The four years that were remaining on his New Orleans contract were for base salaries of $1.2 million (for 2006), $1.6 million (2007),"

    That's pretty cheap for a quality secondary, and apparently he has corner type skills if needed for backup. There must be something else behind the scenes going on if nobody took the trade.

    From ESPN today...
    "A former Akron standout, and the third-round pick of the Bucs in the 2001 draft, Smith is the kind of safety many teams want now, an interior defender with cornerback-level coverage skills. In fact, Smith started his career with the Bucs as a standout nickel cornerback and then was moved to safety 2003.

    Smith, 27, provides a defense with tremendous flexibility because of his hybrid skills and his ability to move out into the slot and cover wide receivers."

    I think we should make a play. But that's just me.
