The Anderson Herald Bulletin's George Bremer says the Colts "could look to reunite" free agent CB Sean Smith with ex-Dolphins teammate CB Vontae Davis.Smith, of course, is in limbo with the Dolphins on whether he will be franchise-tagged or not. According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, 25-year-old Smith is said to be looking for $8 million annually on his next contract. Currently, the Colts are about $43 million under the salary cap for 2013. Smith would certainly be an upgrade on Jerraud Powers and company.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald insists the Dolphins will not use the franchise tag on free agent CB Sean Smith."The Dolphins will NOT use their tag on Sean Smith," tweeted Salguero. "Period." The Herald and the Palm Beach Post have been in complete disagreement over this issue for the entire offseason. The Post reported earlier on Monday that Smith was "preparing" for the tag, but "rooting strongly against it." Teams could start tagging players on Monday, and they can do so all the way up until March 4.

I've read he's competitive, so I wonder how he would feel about going back to be in Vontae Davis's shadow again?

Tampafan8251:
I think it is going to come down to Smith or Cox for us in FA, I feel like with our new DB coach Cox has the inside track, i'm sure when he was interviewed Derek Cox was brought up, we'll see in a few weeks

That's a good point.  His inability to stay healthy does scare me...a lot.  It could also mean a much more reasonable contract than Smith is looking for.  I wonder if we could sign both Cox and Toler for the same price Smith is asking?

The Anti-Java:
You both make good points IMO.   Colts are 40mil under the cap?   Smith might prefer to come to the Bucs, where he could be the man. With a couple new draft picks under him.

Smith and Toler would be nice with a drafted CB or 2 mixed in.  Keep Leonard, Gaiter and maybe Gorrer.

It will depend on if Dom wants to shell out that much cash for Smith.  I  love his size though.

Tampafan8251:
Either one would be our number one. When healthy cox is a better corner than smith. From reading it seems coxs injuries have been from freak accidents and if we do sign him lets hope our strength coach can help him out because he has the ability to be a shutdown corner

I honestly don't know much about Cox's strengths and weaknesses.  Can he be effective in press coverage?  Is he physical enough to play in Schiano's system?  If the answer is yes, then sign him up to a incentive laden contract.

The Anti-Java:
Well.. we will have to see how it plays out.  Smith might get too expensive for Dom's taste.

He is represented by David Cantor, a well known agent who reps about 20 NFL players.  And I can assume he will be looking for top dollar money for Smith.  Something in the 8-10mil range.

Dolorous Jason:
It's a shorter move to tampa , Sean . Right down the road , baby.

+1 I hope we go at him aggressively like we did VJax, not saying give him VJax money but do what it takes.
