One DE who had flow under the radar? Antonio Smith, ex-#Texans star. He has 2 visits lined up and 4 teams interested. Should be this week

Go see what you can get Antonio...We'll see if we can match it or get close.

Sayonara Ninja Smith. He was a good player for us. I wish we could keep him, but I doubt we will. Best of luck, unless he's playing against us.

I dunno, wonder if AS ends up in the 3-4 or 4-3 ?

If Antonio Smith doesn't return to the #Texans he said he will retire the ninja assassin character forever. #whataloss

That frankly sounds like a player who would prefer to return to the Texans more than the usual "i'd like to return" comments.

Free agent DE Antonio Smith:"The Texans said that they are very interested in signing me...but they want to see what the market is on me."

Antonio Smith on favorite Texans memory: ""All of them. All my memories of the Texans. I loved my time there."

Free agent DE Antonio Smith on visits set with the Redskins, Titans, Rams & Raiders: ""I feel flattered, man, I feel flattered,"Smith said.

Free agent DE Antonio Smith: "I have visits to Washington, Tennessee, the Rams then Oakland."

Losing Smith is going to hurt but he just doesn't fit the new Crennel 3-4 system and he's expensive. I wish him all the best, except when he's playing the Texans, but it's a business.

That's a major selling point for him, scheme versatility. But, I don't think Ninja will get what he got here.

I always liked AS, hate to see him go, but if he does, our penaltys will go down an average of 11 yards per game, since he was good for one offsides and a 15 yarder every other week. Although a fair amount of those 15 yarders were bullsh*t.

I think it is more a commentary on how he's developed a "character" at each of his NFL teams. In Arizona he was Scooby and had "the world's biggest left arm", or something to that effect. Here in Houston, obviously, he was the Ninja Assassin. He'll develop something else wherever he lands next.

Travis Johnson (who I think is completely and totally awful and I can't fathom how he keeps landing spots on the radio, but I digress) was on 610 yesterday and had just spoken to Antonio and stated rather confidently that he thought Antonio would end up in Tennessee. Sounded like more than a hunch.

You have to take what Travis says with a grain of salt. He seems very pissed at the business of the NFL. He has good contacts and information due to his relationship with current NFL players but he slurs his words too much for me to enjoy listening to him.

Travis did suggest that BOB and the Texans will try to get rid of the leader type guys that they can. And I think Smith fits the mold there. High priced FA that I think could be considered a leader.

He only missed it by 2000 or so miles.

I think he's awful too .... and comes off as a racist SOB at times to top it off.
