This guy is STILL a free agent. I know he has character issues, but he'd be a fantastic improvement over anyone on the offensive line and could easily play guard or RT, probably not LT though. I can't find a single recent article on a team showing interest in signing him. What do you guys think?

LT: Reiff
LG: Sims
C: Raiola
RG: Nagy
RT: Andre

There is a good reason he's unsigned. He wants too much money, so much money not a single team is interested.

i think our line sucks with him or without him. we need to draft a lt so reiff can move to guard. if they do that then maybe we have something. id rather go with fox and hilliard at RT, save the money on smith and use it to land a respectable WR or TE but at this point I dont think there is much available

He's probably looking for that fat contract so he can be ├╝ber fat again ala Aaron Gibson.

Yeah, I pretty much see Smith as the offensive tackle version of Albert Haynesworth. Not interested at his asking price, and too much propensity for him to flame out faster than a faulty roman candle.

I think teams are (wisely) cautious about a player that didn't do a whole lot until his contract year. If he would agree to a Revis-type deal (NO guaranteed money), then I'd love to see him signed by the Lions.
