This is crap:

Smith, Meier to visit

The Saints will host free agents RB Antowain Smith and TE Shad Meier today at their facility in Metairie. Both players were most recently with the Tennessee Titans.

Smith (6-2, 232, Houston) is going into his ninth season. A two-time 1,000-yard rusher with Buffalo in 1998 and New England in 2001, he has gained 6,222 yards and scored 51 rushing TDs in his career. Last season with the Titans, he had 137 rushes for 509 yards and four TDs. He also has 936 career receiving yards and three TDs. Last year, he had 22 catches for 169 yards for Tennessee. He was originally drafted in the first round (23rd overall) by Buffalo in the 1997 NFL Draft. He played with the Bills from 1997-2000 and the Patriots from 2001-03, where he was part of New England's Super Bowl XXXIX and XXXVIII triumphs, before going to the Titans in 2004.

I think that Smith might be a bit over priced for a 2nd or 3rd RB, but don\'t you think he\'d be a fine back up for Duece?

I like AS. he\'d be a great #3RB, and a good long-term replacement if Deuce were to get hurt. Smith and Stecker could stop the bleeding.
I say make him a reasonable offer. If he accepts fine, if not we keep looking.

This is just stupid. AS was washed up before he was cut by the Pats. We should just keep Kijana Carter if we are gonna have him. Just dumb. I\'d rather A-Train over him. Or drafting Anthony Davis in the 4th round or something.

another who will cost too much for what they produce imo.

is anyone like me? when the pats cut him i loose, i thought, why would the superbowl champions let their main man rb go for nothing? then, i said, he must stink like how they let tebucky go. he did nothing to prove otherwise with the titans last year with a big opportunity.

We would be better off having noone if he is the only option. That guy sucks bad. 3rd rb or no.

My goodness son, you took the words right out of my mouth. To be honest, he never really impressed in New England. 1000 yard rushing seasons aren\'t the accomplishment they used to be.

well i dont think the guy sucks as our 3rd rb. but if he is asking to much then yes it isnt worth it. but if we can sign him for what he is worth why not. the guy can still play at least as a number 3

AS never made it thru the conditioning drills in NE when he knew he was the starter. What kind of shape will he come in & keep himself in, knowing he\'s on the pine.
He\'s a postal player. Puts a stamp on & mails it in.
