    GM is taking a gamble here to have Smith on the active roster. He hasn’t been able to stay healthy in the last three seasons; didn’t play at all last season. So we now have two small pass-rushers. Okay, it is what it is.

    Gamble? The alternative would be placing him on PUP and keeping George Johnson. If you wanted to mitigate the risk it would’ve happened by moving on in March/April not now.

      Why do you think we must have another defensive end right now? Smith is not ready to play.

    Horse, the only way this is a gamble is if he is not 100% fully recovered. How is his proven production when healthy a gamble? He’s simply not built to be a 3 down D linemen. Neither is Von Miller which is why he doesn’t line up at D end for 3 straight plays, but I dang sure don’t ever hear anyone in Denver say Miller can’t get it done because he’s a “small pass-rusher.”
