Short is a lot like Smith and would be a solid replacement.
Williams is more than a step up over Cody.
Bailey gives us the slot WR we have never had. Someone with the ability to get separation and someone who is really good after the catch.
Need to research Slay more.
I really like what Alonzo brings to the table. Good match next to Cushing.
Not to mention what the money save by letting go of Smith could allow us to do in FA. Im a big fan of Smith's but sometimes you have to make these type of decisions. Last year for example.
If we drafted Stedman Bailey and signed a FA WR for #2 spot, we could cut Walter saving $3.5m. (Since his $5m bonus was a first year roster rather than signing bonus, I'm not sure if it was prorated for cap.)
