    Steve Smith anyone?

    If he gets released and we could pick him up, we could still draft a guy in the first or second and a TE. That would give 3 legit starters with Smith, Decker and Kerly and the chance for a young guy to learn from smith.
    He is a tough mother ****er and could be very good for Geno.

    I wouldn't mind bringing him in. He did a lot for Cam's confidence since he can really go up and get the ball in traffic and is still a deep threat.

    He's a solid vet I'd bring him in

    He's too old and he's lost his speed. Pass.

    We already had a smith in Holmes. No thank you.

    I'm not really in favor of bringing in Smith because of his age, but he was a still is miles better than Holmes. Literally the only comparison between the two is that they're both under 6 feet tall.

    Smith had stretches of being considered the best WR in the league. He's the epitome of toughness, and not a little ***** like Holmes. He'd be a great pick-up, but I don't think we can outbid the Ravens for him.

    He's not even considering us. I would've liked to bring him though. Tough dude and a veteran presence in the locker room. He's still got some left in the tank.

    I completely agree with what you said.
    He was outspoken but not a divisive person and a tough competitor.
    Whereas Holmes was divisive and not a competitor.

    If we could somehow grab him, I also think it would be a great guy to have as we develop young WRs. Smith works hard.

    On a one year deal, absolutely, sign him. He's tough and a good leader, could provide a lot of mentorship to Kerley and any other younger guys we draft. His best football is behind him, but I think there are still a few miles on his tread. I recall seeing the catch in the end zone where he was completely hammered, broke his arm...but held onto the ball like nothing happened. Guy plays with a passion that we need on our team.

    Am I thinking of the wrong Smith who punched his own teammate? I'm saying from a locker room cancer point. Not skill wise and such.

    We need Stephen Smith to sign with the Ravens because it will remove the Ravens from maybe drafting a college wideout that we may have interest in. I'm hoping he signs with the Ravens tomorrow.

    Most of the time, you're only gonna have 3 WR's on the field. As far as I'm concerned, we know who 2 of those 3 are: Decker and Kerley.

    The depth at WR in this draft is such that we're almost gonna have to take 1 at some point. There's going to be a time - 1st round, 2nd round, 3rd round, maybe 4th but there's gonna be a time when WR is BPA and we should be all over that. So that would be your 3 right there.

    Which says to me that if we get another WR in free agency, we should probably be looking for a short-term deal with high upside: a guy like Nicks or Smith would suit this just fine.

    Then let that rookie compete to get in the lineup, have him ready in case there's an injury and otherwise just rotate him in and out as the 4th WR.

    I love this idea. I also think that depending on who we draft and grab via FA, there may be a bunch of 2 wr sets.
    That's why I asked about Smith. I think he would be great to teach a young WR how to play. So we bring him in and draft a guy like a cooks, obj, Benjamin, Mathews, Robinson... or draft two guys. They would have a year or two to play and learn.
