The other reason I took them was because they were coming off injury and could be stashed on IR for the year. They would be on the IR and not count against the cap. If they could rediscover their previous pre-injury form, they would be impact players. Smith would be a high level pass rusher and Fisher would be a high level RT. Its a low risk high reward proposition. Their floor may be low, but their ceiling is super high.
I hear ya', but injury in two consecutive years scared me.
Are those freak injuries for Fisher?
