Its not about if Sean Smith is worth it or overrated, as I agree he is not worth it and is overated. I dont like Sean Smith, but he is no doubt the best corner on our roster, with nobody able to step in and perform anywhere near to his level.
I love Randy Starks, but we have a player in Odrick who is a no.1 draft pick, playing out of position, who could slide in and replace immediately.
As i said, I would prefer Randy Starks over Sean Smith, but for the upcoming season, IMO, we will miss Sean Smith more than we would have Randy Starks.
When it comes to the franchise tag, I agree that Starks was the right call. With the amount of DBs that are hitting FA and those in the draft, I don't doubt that we can find some guys that'll play just as well or poorly, depending upon your stance, as Sean Smith for less money than what he's looking for.
