I can only tell you what they told us, and that’s they needed to create some space for things they thought was coming. From our perspective, he was ahead of schedule. If you watched the rehab and the conditioning, he was running and lifting. It was curious to us what caused this.

But the phone has been ringing off the hook for him. They did say there’s a possibility that once he’s healthy, that they could bring him back. They just indicated there was something they needed to create some space for.

They still have 10 more positions available for TC.

Smith was not released to make room for anyone else. They released him to make room for Jones payday. Confused


DJ Smith was making 555,000 you don't really save anything by cutting him since you have to sign a guy to take his place anyways. Cutting him for $$ makes even less sense.

I didn't like the move.

I didn't mean they would free up cap room by releasing him. It frees up on field reps for Jones who is getting paid to pay.

I was neved high on Smith anyway. I saw a player that was decent depth but nothing more. Not a big loss, even if making the big assumption that he returns to pre injury form.
