SMITH RETURNS TO TITANS DEFENSE

The Titans agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent Robaire Smith on Tuesday, which will give the team more depth at defensive tackle.

Smith, who spent his first four seasons (2000-03) with the Titans, rejoins the roster after being released by the Houston Texans on Sunday.

''It is great to have Robaire back,'' Titans GM Floyd Reese said. ''He had a hand in our previous success and adding his ability to a talented defensive line rotation should lead to more success.''

Titans veteran defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth said Smith's presense will help the Titans run defense.

''I think we were the number one rushing defense in the league when he was here,'' Haynesworth said. ''So it would be a great start and hopefully we could get back to that."

Smith has played in 82 career games with 370 tackles and 16.5 sacks for his career. Last season in Houston, Smith had a career high 102 tackles and two sacks.

I wonder what he is being paid? I read the Texans didn't want to pay his salary and only be getting a back up tackle out of it, which is why he was released.

Well good luck to him as an individual, but I hope his team finds itself in perpetual last place.

I'm still a bit surprised we let him go.

Default Trust the new staff

Houston, 5-11. Bill Polian told me for 10 minutes this summer how good Houston is going to be -- and soon.

When Peter King is quoting one of the top GM's in the NFL concerning the Texans, I listen.

Trust the new staff. They know what they are doing.

Based on past performance, Robiare will have two good games per season and both will be against us.
