Post Bears interested in Smiley
From ESPN Insider...

Quote:
Just prior to the draft, there were some trade rumblings regarding the Miami Dolphins possibly shopping OG Justin Smiley. One rumor even had them expecting a third-rounder in return; clearly they missed the memo that 2010 trades involving draft picks needed to include a fifth-rounder, not a third.

In any case, we hadn't heard much of anything regarding Smiley since then, but since we've hit the dog days of the NFL offseason in earnest, it's time to sniff out some more of these second-level situations. Apparently, there's some interest in Smiley in Chicago, albeit lukewarm. Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times passes along word that Chicago Bears GM Jerry Angelo would be interested in signing Smiley if the Dolphins release the veteran guard. Hayes actually used the phrase "if and when," although it's not yet a certainty that this cut will take place.

Still, given the relative lack of interest in Smiley thus far, perhaps a release by the Fins isn't far off.


Something tells me that if his shoulder is bad enough that they don't even want him lifting weights at the facility, that he would not pass a physical in a trade.

I think Miami needs to do the right thing here and release him before training camp, and give him a shot with another team. Clearly he is not in their future, or current plans.

It's a shame as he's one of my favorite players on the team.

Smiley, Donald Thomas and a 4th for Olsen, that would clear up a lot of logjams on the roster and offer the Bears better Oline depth without hurting our depth.

Why would we trade DT? The guy is playing for close to nothing, and is one of our more promising players.
