I think they only keep him for cheap. But what are we gonna do then? We cant just hope that Marshall comes back good, AND hope to land a solid CB in FA. They are kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place with Smith it seems. I think they offer him #2 corner money to stay, but he will test the market and get signed by some idiots. Probably the Jets, to take Revis' place LOL. That would be classic!!
R1: Doriel Green-Beckham WR Oklahoma (if he's there he's too good to pass on, a la Randy Moss.)
R2: Denzel Perryman LB Miami (smallish but fierce.)
R3: Ladarius Gunther CB Miami
R4: David Cobb RB Minnesota
R5: Adrian Amos Safety Penn State
R6: Warren Herring DT Wisconsin
R7: Kaleb Johnson G Rutgers
Everyone in our secondary other than Rashad Jones and maybe Chris Clemons needs to be cut or let go. We should try to get Kenny Vaccaro to play free safety and come down to play the nickel which would reduce Clemons to more of a back up/special teamer who only sees the field in sub packages. Draft a CB and try to see who we can get in free agency that Coyle can work his magic from Cinci on.
I don't think that I've ever seen a CB drop as many INTs as Smith.
PFF's information is cementing my want to see us move on from this guy.
The question is now - does he deserve the money he is looking for with stats like that?
A world of dew,
and within every dewdrop
a world of struggle.
