Smith needs to go, he should of been cut after the 2010 season. I'd like to see a healthy Vilma next to Lofton. Hope he restructures but not it could be time to cut ties with him as well

Smith is a goner.

See how the others playout but do not mess up Lofton or Bunkley

Every one of those guys will likely be asked to return at a lower salary, which will probably be at market value.

Smith, Harper, Vilma and Ellis do not suck, they just aren't nearly as good as their 2013 salary. All 4 know it and would be fools to not listen to counter offers by Loomis.

I'd wager 3 of those 4 are back here next year.

Maybe we should ask some teams, "Brothers can you spare a DC or two?"

Remember, Payton Manning was the highest paid player in the NFL not so long ago. Every season after that billing he restructured to make concessions for salary cap.

I actually wouldn't mind keeping Smith IF he would restructure his contract and IF we would get his replacement. He would be a great rotational player or backup.

he needs to shed some weight and become faster on the pass rush.
Totally not "fit" for the part
