DeAngelo Smith just released by Chicago. Drafted by Dallas, then claimed by Clevland, and Chicago. Guy was a playmaker in college. Might be worth a look. We can sign him to the practice squad and not have to waive a player either to check him out a see whats up!

TEAM: Chicago Bears

HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6'0' / 191

DOB: 7/17/1986

AGE: 23

COLLEGE: Cincinnati

Smith was strictly a cornerback at Cincinnati, but the Cowboys envision both him and Alan Ball as a versatile enough to also handle safety. An option to return punts, he'll concentrate mostly on special teams as a rookie.

this dude is slow, and has not stuck with a team yet. Fell in the draft to the 5th round. It is a problem when every team that you have signed with Waives you.

Yep. You are right J Madd. Sounds just like Middleton. Whats wrong with another tryout? He is bigger than what we have. We have guys like Middleton on the team already!

TB

We dont have Middleton anymore he was signed to a 53 man roster in Jacksonville off of our PS. We would have kept Middleton on the PS, because we were confident the kid has talent. Smith was originally drafted by the Cowboys and they didnt even want to sign him to their PS. It really is not a good sign when he is realeased into the season, especially the way the Browns have been playing

I'm a Dallas fan. Their secondary sucks and has for a while. And they cut him. Any more questions?

The key words in your proposition are "...in college"

Ryan Leaf was great in college

Todd Marinovich was great in college

Aundray Bruce was great in college

David Greene was great in college

DJ Shockley was great in college

None of them lived up to expectations at the professional level and all of them can be considered to be 'busts' in the NFL.

DeAngelo Smith was never considered to be 'great in college' and he looks destined to be a short term NFL journeyman until he finally fades away into obscurity, like the guys noted above.

My main concern is, if he was cut loose from that many teams already, than why would we want him? I think giving him a look wouldn't be a bad idea, I hope we give as many guys looks as the team possibly can. But if they didn't want him, what could he possibly do for this team that he couldn't for those teams?
