    He should be gone. That's $2 mil that could be used to sign a better player who gets cut after TC or during preseason. Or it could be used to get a cheap, effective FA who could give us depth on the OL like Vernon Carey.


    Cue nut telling me nobody has the right to comment on any moves the FO ever makes because we don't have the infinite knowledge of pros like Matt Millen and Brian Schottenheimer.

    Hey, I'm fine with keeping Eric Smith, just as long as its not at the expense of any young, talented DB......Throw him on specials and THAT'S IT

    He is a trash safety......All of you defenders of EMith, I ask you: Out of all of the snaps he played on defense over the years, name me ONE game-changing play.....JUST ONE
    Watch Tebow all year...What happened to E Smith is not unique. Tebow's style catches guys out of position constantly, which we will enjoy this year very much. You're asking a question with him in a role he never should have been placed in. He's not a game changer. He's a hard hitter, who can stick a guy and play solid ST. That's where he belongs and where he will be this year.

    Great post!!!!!!I was thinking the same thing. I was horrified when I saw him on the roster last year. He needs to be cut this year. There has to a some walk on that is better than him!!!!!!!!

    The problem is Eric Smith makes every TE we face look like a pro bowler. It isn't just Tebow he made look like Gale Sayers. The guy is too f'n slow to even be an effective backup.

    Jim Leonhard and Lowery make Eric Smith look like Jamarcus Russel.
