I believe he is an unrestricted free agent. Questions to the experts here: 1. Can he be franchised? (i think not) 2. What would be a reasonable guess as to what kind of contract he might get? I would assume he would be paid at least as much as what we gave Smith. 3. What are our chances of getting him and how would he fit in here? Personally, i think he would be a huge addition for the defense and would allow us to focus our draft choices on OL and RB, to get a running game.
