Still not 100% sold on the idea of Rey M. as a Redskin

Anyone have any thoughts on Andre Smith firing his agent?

Here's a good write up on Andre Smith's decision
--NFL FanHouse
I tend to agree with this conclusion:
Quote:
While on the surface this might seem like another low-point in Smith's not-yet-pro career, it might actually represent the opposite. Throughout his fall, many NFL insiders questioned the advice he was given (remember, these prospects are barely adults and swimming in an overwhelming sea of people attempting to exploit them; they very much need well-intended advisors), and by firing Keels, Smith might have finally shown a semblance of sensibility in this process. It's possible teams look at his decision to switch agents and see a player who is finally looking to build positive momentum by recognizing the err of his past ways, someone who is taking responsibility for his fate.
It also says he is hiring Darren McFadden's agent. Seems like a good move for him. I am still hoping he or Oher fall to us, and that we take them if one of them does.

I'm not a huge Maulaga fan per se, but I like his intensity. At #13 I certainly don't see us taking him, but if we were able to trade down, e.g. w/Detroit at 20 or into the 2nd round, I could see how he might be the best available.

So Andre Smith fired his agent? Maybe his agent suggested he run w/out his shirt at the combine?!

Good for Smith. I still feel this kid got bad advice that led to the fiasco at the combine. I'm sure a lot of ppl want to get their hands on any money he's going to earn. I hope this means a turn for the better for his career.

He would never get past Denver at 18th or even San Diego at 16th!
