It doesn't make any sense, not just economical. It doesn't even make
common sense. Time to move on. Hood is ready,and Hayward will
be ready to develop and get some time in there. If Troy does his usual
injury feast, it's time to draft some safeties next year.

smith makes the most sense. they have just spent to first round picks on his position in the last few years. 6 million is a lot of money to pay to a guy that can't stay on the field for a full season. i thought they would ask him to reduce his salary rather than cut him ( maybe they did ) considering they already sent eason packing , now their only depth would be an untested rookie.

It's got to be Smith. Crazy to spend that $ on a guy who doesn't even
play most games.

I heard we're still WAY over the cap, in which case I could see it being both Smith and Foote, neither of whom I think we need.

Smith's been awesome but his time has come. I see no reason to pay him that much with a capable starter waiting in the wings, not to mention he is injury plagued and can't make it past week 5...

He said it's a blessing to have a job today, and then some "easy-come-easy-go" bit.
