I don't want to get rid of Smith he needs to restructure he's contract for the team. He's a captain on the defense and he needs to take a page out Drews book you know he would do it.
Smith he needs to restructure he's contract for the team[/QUOTE].! I said before Smith, will not want to play for another team at this stage of his career. Just for the best shot for another ring. I do think he will redo the contract. just a feeling

That is exactly why we need another DE on the other side to pressure the QB. When Smith has help he is impossible to stop. That would be like asking any starting DE in the league to get it done on there own. It's not possible, it always needs to be a combined effort. The sacks he did get this year were when Harper or some other DB or free safety was blitzing the QB. Smith would be a horrible player to waste. Trust me, if we could get a quality DE on the other side his numbers would increase exponentialy.
