The free agency period begins soon and the Arizona Cardinals need to find some players that can help them.
From Niners Nation:
The 49ers released Smith after two years of his five-year contract. The move comes as part of what will likely be a significant roster overhaul. Smith had a pretty bad two seasons in San Francisco, thanks primarily to the fact that the 49ers had questionable QB play.
I think Smith still has plenty left in the tank, but he needs the right kind of situation. He is a strong deep threat, although he still has somewhat shaky hands. He is best suited as a 1a or 2 receiver. He can take over a game with his speed, but you need a consistent possession receiver, or if you’re lucky enough a generally strong No. 1 receiver starting opposite him. He is not going to make a mediocre or bad quarterback good, but with a solid QB (see Flacco, Joe), he can be a very dangerous weapon. Considering how the past two years went for the 49ers, there is absolutely zero surprise that he proved to be a waste of money.
Smith is a solid locker room guy, who was plenty willing to stand before the media when things were going bad. He was a little pouty at times on the sideline, but it’s hard to blame him given how awful the 49ers were.
While the Cardinals may need a strong wide receiver, those are going to be fairly expensive in free agency.
With Larry Fitzgerald likely being close to retirement, Smith could be a nice one year rental, insurance for John Brown, but I don’t know if he is a long term fit.
What do you think?
If the Cardinals could get Smith for one year at $4-5 million, would you be interested?
