Chiefs, Sean Smith Enter Early Talks, According To Report


Midnight is here and the legal tampering has begun.

According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the Kansas City Chiefs have shown early interest in Dolphins CB Sean Smith.

 

This is interesting considering just before midnight the news broke that the Chiefs agreed to a three-year deal with former Atlanta Falcons CB Dunta Robinson.

Smith played over one-thousand snaps for the Dolphins last season. According to Pro Football Focus, Smith graded -3.1 overall in 2012. Sill, that grade is pretty close to average. Not too far in one direction or the other, considering how much Smith played.

Unlike Robinson, who graded a little low in pass coverage and better in run defense, Smith graded a little better in coverage (+0.7) and a little low on run defense (-1.5).

Smith is still pretty young as he will turn 26 in July. He was a second-round pick by he Dolphins in 2009. He possesses tremendous size at 6-3.

If the Chiefs can manage to snag Smith, to go along with Robinson and Flowers, they will be in very good shape at CB.

What do you think, Addicts? Should the Chiefs snag Smith too or stand pat with Robinson?

    Yes. Do it now. Make it quick, and when I wake up in the morning, let it be done before the rest of the NFL even knows what happened.

    • Doug McD

      Every team has a plan. It does appear these guys are more proactive than most. I really really like the quickness they have shown lately. They won’t be perfect but I believe you have to know when to fish or cut bait. Make a decision and go with it and do it now shows major confidence.

  • @SergioIsAmazin

    We would have a dangerous backfield

  • Richard Comstock

    I have been all over this since the davis tweet. Where there is smoke there is fire. Smith and robinson wow! Our def will be much improved! Dorsey is really building a power house! If they hit in the draft we could be a force in the afc for years to come. Smith is very physical and so is robinson.

    Robinson has had a problem with his front seven getting pressure. You can belive with houston and hali rushing the passe he will be much improved!

    Dare i say… How lucky are we to be kc fans now!!

    War chiefs… I cant wait untill the sea of red is finnaly back to what it should be!!

    I can hear the ac/dc and see kc wolf shaking that big ol belly already!!!!!

    • jesse

      war chiefs… i like the sound of that!! cant wait to be in that sea of red! This aggressiveness is so awesome!

    • berttheclock

      Richard, I still completely disagree with your assessment of Jeff Allen and think your Winston comments were skewed, but, agree fully with you on his move. BTW, as for Winston moving on, I really have no problem with that as I am a trench warfare guy and wanted our first pick to go to bringing in a quality young offensive tackle. Now, if the Chiefs can pay the bucks and bring in the FA guard from Buffalo, I would be very happy.

      • njjohn

        That’s what I’ve been saying since the minute I saw his name available. He would be perfect to add to the Chiefs o-line. That’s the missing piece, a top quality guard, and he is it.

  • Tom Sparks

    Sean Smith is THE FA CB that I wanted to see the Chiefs sign. I think he is just entering his prime, as a player. Still young enough to be coachable, also.
    With Reid and all the coaches he brought in, I think Smith is the best CB FA for our team.
    I sure hope they sign him, because he is going to be courted by more than a couple other teams. I hope they can pull the trigger fast! It is very possible with Reid. He has an extraordinary record at signing better than AVERAGE FA’s, This is the reverse of the PEE-ONLY way of recruitingunder achieving FA’s for garbage

    • Michael Shaw

      So you like the idea of us signing the defensive equivalent of Randy Moss?????????? Who the hell wants a guy that takes plays off if it isn’t in his best interest??????????

      • KCMikeG

        I have researched your concerns and it appears that it is old news. He had an issue in 2010, got benched and came back strong after that. Sound like anyone we have on our team already? DJ is one of our Pro Bowlers now. The success of a CB is effected by the safety support over the top and the Fins were #30 so that tells me they had much bigger problems. Plus they are way over the cap which is why Long & Bush were released too. He was a 2nd round pick in 2009. Multiple teams want him and he is the #5 CB FA. Check out what Sam Madison & Bengals HC Marvin Lewis think of him.

        • TAZMOSIS

          A little off target on the ‘Fins cap. Actually, Miami is way below the cap and have near somewhere over 30 million to spend. Given that they have gotten rid of several high-priced players, they can just about sign whatever guys they want.

          • KCMikeG

            My bad. I thought I had read somewhere that the cap was why they were letting Long, Smith & Bush go. If the cap isn’t the issue then why wouldn’t they resign their #1 draft pick LT & a #2 pick CB in Smith & Bush who has had the best 2 years of his career & is their only starter caliber RB? Does that number include the resigning of Hartline, Moore and the tagging of Starks?

      • sidibeke

        Well, we already did that in Bowe, didn’t we? At least that is his rep.

  • Daniel Mayfield

    Better get him while he’s there! Try to anyway

  • GDL40

    Sure hope we can get him ! ….. great size for a CB ….. along with D. Robinson and Flowers….. and Arenas for depth …..! HOPEFULLY they can bring him on board ! speaking of Arenas, I sure hope we can get a good returner this year, that may already be on the roster, but I dont think its Arenas….. sure miss those Dante Hall days ! A good return game sure helps !

    • chiefridgy

      Dante Hall….The X Factor!

      • kh

        If Devon wylie is still around he really needs a shot… Super fast but was injured last season.

        • chiefridgy

          I agree.

    I’m loving my Chiefs off-season thus far… Sean Smith would a great addition to Dunta Robinson, Brandon Flowers, and Eric Berry!!! Cheifs RED will be taking over the NFL next season and beyond!!!

  • Matt Dickson

    Dorsey continues to embarrass Pioli by demonstrating how a good GM gets the job done. This team is obviously in a win now mode the way they’re aggressively trying to shore up holes.

    They obviously feel the Chiefs are set for a very quick turn-around.

  • Michael Shaw

    HAVE ANY OF YOU LISTENED OR READ THE OFFERINGS POSTED BY HIS TEAMMATES?? He takes plays off! Why would we want the defensive equivalent of Randy Moss??/??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pealvin

    I love the aggressiveness but we have a long way to go before training camp. Remember we thought we did good in FA last season and we ended up with two wins and a murder-suicide.

  • e_racer

    The Chiefs will have options for a corner in FA. Sean Smith, Deangelo Hall, Nnamdi Asomugha, Brent Grimes, and Chris Houston to name a few. It’s a decent year for corners and even better for safeties.

  • KCMikeG

    Dunta Robinson was a 1st round pick and had one of the best seasons since his days in Houston. Sean Smith was a 2nd round pick on a terrible pass defense. The Fins were terrible stat wise vs the pass because they were #1 vs the run forcing teams to throw. Does anyone think they could be looking at moving Robinson to safety like many older CB’s have like Woodson?

  • micah stephenson

    They should get S.Smith too. You can never have enough good CBs.

  • berttheclock

    Mike Nolan proved last season, you can play 3 quality CBs on the field at the same time. As Smith’s secondary coach, Al Harris, is now with the Chiefs, and the Chiefs are talking with Smith and his agent, that means Harris gave the green light to Dorsey/Reid. Fans in Miami have written reams at the Miami Herald about Smith taking games and plays off. Perhaps his motiviation faded after his first year there. But, Harris wanting him says a great deal.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Where does he sign? On Tuesday I mean. Calm down Roger.

  • http://twitter.com/EdMaldo1 Don Quijote

    Ok we got a DB. Millner off the table. We need a DL. Get the RT in FA. We r on our way. Go Chiefs

  • thabear04

    This is not the Chiefs I have been seeing. We hardly make any moves in Free Agent but so far I like it

  • Larry Devore

    Go for him!!!!
