Saints sign Dwight Smith!

Dwight Smith UFA Buccaneers – He spent the first two seasons of his four-year career mainly as a backup at cornerback and safety and special teams player. He took over the starting strong safety job prior to the 2003 season after Dexter Jackson left via free agency. Smith really showed tremendous improvement in 2004 and became one of the better safeties at covering the tight end. He was able to shut down some of the best young tight ends in Alge Crumpler and Antonio Gates in recent weeks. Smith plays a physical brand of football and while he’s not very big, he makes up for it with top effort. He’s just starting to realize his potential and should be a starter for a long time to come.

I assume we\'ll move him to FS huh? Or will he stay a SS.
Not a big difference in SS/FS in Tampa\'s cover-two, so I\'d imagined he\'s equally suited for FS also, especially being a former CB, with 4.49 speed.

My pessimism is slowly waning. This is great news if it is true.

So far the team is showing renewed vigor towards free agency. Let\'s hope it continues.

If I\'m not mistaken I think he\'s also a stud special teams guy. Can\'t remember where I read it but I do recall reading it.

I never really liked McDonalds anyway, well except when the McRib\'s back.

This is going to be a huge addition to our secondary. This is exactly what we needed. In all liklihood, Smith will be moved to FS and replace T-sucky Jones. The great thing about Dwight is that he is a versatile player who can play CB at a pretty high level. When I saw him at Akron when he was coming out, he had all of the tools and fundamentals to be starting CB in the league. This is cause for excitement. Certainly we\'ve made two very SOLID moves. Nothing extravagant or sexy, but two positions we needed to address with good players and we have done that. Ed Hartwell should be the next pin to fall.....I HOPE!!!!

I read in an article earlier today that he \"hopes to play corner at the team he signs with\". I don\'t think that\'ll be the case here, but you never know.
