The thing is, with that, you'd figure if he was such a cancer in the lockerroom why would a coaching staff that had him for a few years (Bucs) want him back?

Add to that the fact BOTH his off the field incidents came when he was with Tampa. And they still want him back. Just a dumb move for us.

Most of the things said in the thread are spot on. This is a dumb move. I mean, maybe Payton and the staff see something in Roman Harper that no one else in the world sees and maybe we dont need Smith. I still think we should have gotten something for the guy. He will end up being a Pro Bowler for someone else.

Wow! I'm suprised by the timing. You would think that the coaches would give him a final chance to prove himself in training camp and the first few preseason games if nothing else. Makes me wonder if Smith asked to be traded or released if he wasn't going to get playing time. Maybe he got whiny about it and became dead man walking in Paytonland.

Well I do see one positive to cutting Smith now. A little bit more dough to sign Bush and the other draft picks !!!

thats right, we hav enough safetys to play a 2-2-7 defense....try and pass on that!.....i like payton, hes a parcels guy, maybe just maybe one of our 27 safetys are better for our defense.......besides it wasnt hard to be our best defensive player last year n.e.way(uh uhm-3-13) i say we give payton some time to mold the team...(1 year) so lets be patient...

WTF? Are you f**king kiddin' me!!!!!!!! I'm with whodi.....it's bad enough we let LeCharles walk for nothing (Brooks I can understand ), but this guy was one of our only standouts on defense last year. A hard hitter with exceptional range & good speed (not to mention CB skills) at safety is hard to find. WTF is Payton thinking? This move really pisses me off!!!!! We should have gotten at least a 3rd rounder for D. Smith!!!!

Let's all just take a breath and step back for a moment..
This seems like a realy stupid thing but I'm not gonna pass judgement just yet.
I'll reserve comments for a couple of days...ya'll should too.
