If they didn't like any ILB options, I'd have saved the cap and added CB depth instead.
I'd rather have Jimmy Smith back in that case over Brockers.
But it's a fallacy to say they didn't like any ILBs, we just don't know that either way. But if they didn't like any of them, sure, let him walk.
Well we know it’s a position of need, that they had the money to sign anyone and they haven’t yet. Seems pretty clear what that indicates.
And they still want and can sign Smith. They are letting him test his market first.
