CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher says the Eagles are interested in free agent CB Sean Smith, but at the right price.
Smith's price continues to rise, and latest reports are that he's seeking "at least" $24 million guaranteed. Philadelphia is bone dry in the secondary with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie a free agent and Nnamdi Asomugha looking at possibly getting released. After those two, there isn't much to work with.

Philly said they want him at the right price. I don't think they want Sean at what he is asking for, and I would think Philly would have learned a lesson after paying big money for both Asomugha and Cromartie and both turn out to be big disappointments.

Sean Smith is a good corner but he is not worth breaking the bank to keep.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "maybe the most coveted" name on the free-agent cornerback market is Sean Smith.
Rapoport lists the Eagles, 49ers, Buccaneers, and Lions as teams that "value" Smith. All are cornerback needy, and Philadelphia reportedly likes Smith "a ton." Rapoport suggests the Eagles may let free agent Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie walk, sign Smith, and bring back Nnamdi Asomugha on a restructured contract.


I really don't understand what these teams like so much about him. Is it his great hands and playmaking ability? And willingness to sacrifice his body? LOL

There are a number of teams looking at Sean Smith. He does have upside in that he improves every year, but when Dolphins coaches and their fans are willing to let him walk than pay his asking price speaks volumes about his inconsistent performance on the field.

I mean, does anyone here think we should pay his asking price ... even if free agency does inflate their price tags? I just can't do it.

According to former teammate Vontae Davis, free agent Sean Smith is "talking" to the Chiefs.
"I seen my dude Sean Smith last night he said (he's) talking to KC him & (Brandon) Flowers will make a good duo," was Davis' specific tweet. That, of course, is tampering, but such talks are rarely policed this time of year. The Chiefs had a big hole opposite Flowers after letting Brandon Carr walk last season, and have relatively few high picks in this year's draft. That could mean they'll be looking to fill some needs via free agency. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Smith is "maybe the most coveted" corner on the market.

I wonder if Vontae told his grandmother before he tweeted that

I'm sure Sean appreciates him publicly admitting to him being tampered with lol.

Vontae is so dumb.

That's why he's no longer with the team. He is a KID in a man's body...people like that don't get it and never will!

I'll be glad when they're both finally gone.
Still sickens me that we passed on Clay Matthews and Hakeem Nicks for that guy. My 2 favorite players entering that draft.
