As a free agent, Dwight Smith tried to sell himself as a cornerback, but he was signed by the Saints as a safety. The Bucs, his former team, also liked him more as a safety. Smith has the speed and ball skills to play corner, but he doesn't have ideal fluidness for the position. He certainly is physical enough to play safety, which is one of the reasons he appealed to Saints coach Jim Haslett. The Saints also hope Smith can provide takeaways. Over the past two seasons, Smith had eight interceptions--three more than all of the Saints' safeties combined. And if injuries hit, the Saints always can move Smith to corner.

Dwight Smith could have a tremendous impact on our defense.

I\'m excited about having a \"true\" play-maker at the safety position.

Even when he doesn\'t make plays, teams are going to have to respect his ability.

How do you define a \"true\" playmaker?

Hard hitter and ball hawk?

someone who continually disrupts the other teams offense and that they have to scheme for when they play you?
