I personally feel that they drafted W. Smith with no long term aspirations for D. Howard. Sure it would work, as I think that Smith has the athleticism to be a \"tweener\". But I think that the sole reason that they franchised Howard is so that they wouldn\'t lose him for nothing. They have no intention of keeping him.

I think Will Smith is a good DE, and will be a GREAT one very soon.

I don\'t want to play him at an unnatural position.

I\'d rather get a LB to play LB for us.

Darren Howard is the perfect trade bait for a solid LB/DT/OT/SS or draft pics.

I 2nd that thought!! There\'s been talk about moving Smith to LB a couple of times on a few threads, but ultimatley if you can get someone who\'s played there and is a veteran and available...Go get him and develop Smith into the Great DE he has the potential to be.

The word was that he could play LB and I so like the idea of Howard at DE and rotating Smith in different positions rushing the QB... that is what he is good at.

So we tie up a good portion of the cap into basically the same 3 players at the same position? What happens when Grant\'s salary comes up, we increase that number? Hell no. Trade Howard and let the LBs play LB. No more \"projects.\"
