I'd love to see him get better in coverage and take over at the safety position.
I'm not arguing that he will be good. I'm arguing that it was a good signing. It was low cost for a guy with ability who started for a 13 win team. The guy is both young and healthy. Maybe he won't work out. If he doesn't, I'd still wouldn't argue that it was a bad front office move.
If Smith would have used the Reeves signing as an excuse not to address CB in the draft and then if Reeves were to not work out, then I would blame the organization for a mistake.
