Just say no to L.J Smith

I am going to say that I don’t personally have a problem with L.J. Smith, I however don’t want him in Atlanta. The reason is simple and that is look at the guys numbers:

When I think of a tight end I don’t expect Shannon Sharpe or Antonio Gates. I do, however expect someone who is out there making plays and yes more than 3 TD’s on average a year would be nice. The guy has had health issues and frankly, I want a young tight end to mold. I say no to a guy we will have to pay more money to because he is a free agent and let’s be honest, if the guys other primary suitor is the Detroit Lions then consider the source and let him go.

 I think that the team that the Falcons are building are in a real position to be championship contenders with the amount of youth and foresight in contract signings we have made.   I will not say go for Pettigrew either but that is another post for another day because I think there is a good amount of talent to be had at the TE spot.
