    2007 stats

    27 tackles (21 solo), 2.5 sacks, 3 FF

    He got one of his sacks against Philly, and the 1.5 came against Denver. He played in all 16 games, starting 2 of them.

    He's 6'2" at 250 lbs, a 6 year vet out of NC State. HE was a UDFA for Tampa Bay.

    250 pounds..........somewhat light for a DE.........wonder if we're looking for a weak side linebacker.

    Smith was a DE in college. He was converted to linebacker when with the 49rs, then reconverted to DE by the Lions, where he was used as a specialty rushing end and STer. He excelled as a STer, but certainly has not had significant sack numbers...............maybe the right player in the right system......maybe the Texans.

    Update - Chron.com says that he has in fact made it to Houston, so we'll at least get that far.

    Might be a decent addition...I am sure Smith and Kubiak think he has something to bring him in for a talk..

    Well for one, he has more sacks over the last two years than Weaver.

    If nothing else, a fire may be lit under Weaver who is coming back from a shoulder injury. I do expect an improvement on that side of line. One way or another.

    It'd be a decent pick up.
