Expensive Smiley Out, Free Safety In?

24 Apr

Justin Smiley is probably leaving us, perhaps via trade in the next several hours, or simply via release soon thereafter. Leaving along with him will be a five year, $25 million contract, a handsome chunk of change for an oft-injured guard.

As we enter the 5th round having ignored the safety position, it occurs to The Bottlenose that perhaps our last bit of offseason magic will involve transferring some of that Smiley cash over to Darren Sharper or OJ Otogwe.

After the “Gerbil” Wilson debacle we find it hard to believe that the ‘Phins would head into the 2010 season with such a massive question mark at free safety.Then again, there have been murmurs about Will Allen switching to FS. Perhaps that’s the plan?
