Of course a trade would have been ideal before his final year to at least get something as opposed to nothing. But as another mentioned who would've taken him. His salary was huge, he just came off the IR the year before, & everyone probably assumed he was destined to be a FA the following year. It would not have made sense for any team to take on an $18M salary w/ no guarantee he would've stayed at seasons end.

In the end, it was a good decision not to re-sign Mario as he is overpaid & simply is not worth his current salary. It's a shame that he got away & the Texans got nothing in return, but this was one situation in which the culprit was Casserly. Smith's hands were tied in this situation & that was probably a good thing when its all said & done because 11 sack seasons are not worth $100M in any way shape or form imo.
Do you think we'd have gotten more than a third round pick for him? If the speculation is correct, we'll get a compensatory third for him.
