    I just read this too and thought the same thing. We 'traded' for this guy. If we gave up something decent for this guy I'm going to be pissed off.

    We had a shot at Marshawn Lynch to fill a crucial key role on our offense. . .and we dont for whatever reason. . . and yet we 'trade' for this unnamed dude?

    I hope we got more than just this player in return.

    If we didn't give up a lot for him, then it's a great move.

    He was cut yes but he know the system and is a great addition because he beats anyone else on our squad at that position.

    He's making a lot of moves on D. I too wanna see what we gave up for this guy, certainly not any draft picks or I'd question TT sanity. Also I'm curious to see what he is gonna do on Monday/ Tuesday (trade deadline) I have a funny feeling we're gonna see some last minute deals as teams are getting desperate.

    Smith is a solid player. He probably shouldn't have been cut in the first place. He knows the systems and is better than what we have at the current positon.

    he was on the packers 1 or 2 years ago and we cut him then, so there is nothing special about him, he's beign brought back cause he knows the system??? maybe,...

    Yeah, hopefully he has used those few years wisely to develop more. Having experience is huge but knowing our system is a bonus. This wasn't a bad idea, probably from lack of other options. It's not like we have a whole pool of quality players to pick from at this point. Take the best we can get.

    I was thinking the same thing, but no way TT does it. Bush has nekid pics of him. Or something of that nature. Only explanation for his being on the roster currently

    im pretty sure Bush is the conditional part. if smith does really poorly, then you guys get bush instead of a pick.

    More like nobody else wants him so therefore we are stuck with him. We couldn't give him away at this point even if we included a bonus of a years worth of Snickers.

    Smith was cut from the Pack b4 cuz of his attitude that McCarthy hated...Ted listened to his coach and now he is telling his coach deal with him
