    Geez that's corny...but I like it.

    Great that a signing went our way. Robeast is one veteran I'm certainly glad to have back. This is going to be a strong rotation, and Robaire should shake Starks out of his doldrums.

    Wow we got him real cheap:

    'Smith's agent, Mike Harrison, and the Titans initially discussed a long-term deal, but eventually decided on a one-year contract that will pay Smith a base salary of $585,000 along with a $415,000 signing bonus. Harrison said the 49ers, Jaguars and Browns were among teams interested.'

    On a one year deal he has a real incentive to play hard & earn himself a longterm payday.:wink2:

    i think you hit the nail on the head. It was a smart move. We are projected to have 20-30m in cap space next year. A good solid year and he will get another 20m dollar contract. If signed to a long term this quickly after a late cut, probably could only muster a 10m dollar contract.
