In response to dapats1281's comment:
I'd rather the Pats develop Dennard, and sign a corner who specializes in the nickel, than to sign to starting corners.
I had no idea sean smith was 6'3 and suddenly like him more than Talib.
I don't have a link right now but I noticed on a Miami blog that the Miami fans don't like Sean Smith at all. Wishing him good riddance.....
Keep up your good work Dapats.;)
Smith wants to get paid. He's looking for at least an $8mil. per year deal. That's why he has yet to be signed. This from Armando Seguro of the Miami Herald:
"On yet another front, Sean Smith is a curious case. His agent was expecting a big market for his client but that big market didn't show up on the first day of free agency.
Indeed, the first day was something of a disappointment for the flooded cornerback market.
Darrelle Revis wasn't traded -- yet. Namdi Asomugha was cut by the Eagles, and the most notable signees were DeAngelo Hall in Detroit, Darius Butler in Indianapolis and Bradley Fletcher in Philadelphia.
Not exactly earth-shattering stuff.
Smith was originally supposed to visit Kansas City. But the Chiefs made other moves and are not bouyant in salary cap space. Agent David Canter also said Smith would be taking other trips but declined to name the teams. Whenver an agent says that, he's trying to gain leverage for his client. Smith may indeed have multiple clubs wanting him to visit. But it's clear none at this point are willing to meet his demands of a contract that pays $8 million or so per year.
That kind of deal gets done quickly by a team with cap space and a strong conviction on a player. If Smith isn't done by the end of the day, it will strongly suggest no team is willing to do that kind of deal for him.
And with each passing hour, the chances of Smith returning to the Dolphins increase because, well, his market shrinks and looks closer to what Miami valued the player at. So today is huge for Sean Smith."
