Because Smith is going to want to see some "love" from the Texans on his next deal. It's just the game that gets played.
I would not compare them at all. SMith is DE/DT and Mercy is DE/OLB if that makes sense.

I want to stress I am not saying Phillips cannot make him into a terror; just not the guy I expected as OLB #26.
