Is former 'skin Derek Smith worth signing?

I think he could be good depth and could replace Godfrey if he chose to follow Gregg Williams to Jacksonville. Im not sure what he would be worth although im sure many will guess "Vet Minimum". What do you guys think?

Niners cut longtime leading tackler Smith

Re: Is former 'skin Derek Smith worth signing?

linebacker speed which is an empahsis right now would take a huge hit and second smith is a mlb and a runstopper not a quick and agile mlb like we have now that fits the mold for a team that likes to execute the tampa 2 defense.

Smith is still playing? Wow. See now this is a guy that you can get for the veteran minimum.

No way is he worth signing he's real slow and old. I would say he is past his prime but he never was really at one.

Re: Is former 'skin Derek Smith worth signing?

he's probably going to retire. he was already saying this was his last contract the day he signed it with the 49ers.

Derek Smith is probably going to retire. I don't think, at his age, that he could help our depth in the middle.

If I had to choose, I would take Smith over Arrington. Give it up folks, LA is done.

I'm surprised it took as long as it did for this thread to show up...
