I know he came in last year, but why not offer a 6th rounder for him?

He plays free safety, we can get rid of Wesley and not be on the hook for his signing bonus.

He is a cover 2 guy, but I imagine he's going to get cut anyway. Get him via FA.

Someone will trade for him........he's to good for them not to get something.

New Orleans is looking to trade him. He'd certainly be worth consideration.

Cincy is shopping WR Kelley Washington too. He never really got a shot for the Bengals. Also worth a look.

Aging vets who sign a big contract with a new team and are chopped 1 year later are usually not worth another chance. I'd pass.

28 is aging?

28 is aging?No shit. He's entering his 6th season. Not exactly ancient.

My question is, why is NO shopping him?

I'd make that trade ASAP.

When it comes to his age, he should really be entering his prime rather than tailing off...

He would be a great answer for FS, and totally worth a #6.

Age is more than a number. If a team makes a "big" FA signing and then looks to offload him the next year, I see that player being in decline.

He's the same age as Greg Wesley. When was his prime? Where is his upside? I'd call him aging too, FWIW.

If you'd take a chance on Smith, more power to you, but I don't like to sign or trade for "big name players" that will have changed teams twice in 2 years.

Fool me once, fool me twice and all that......

Wesley isn't aging; just sucking.
