Daryl Smith rumors: Jaguars not expected to bring back LB

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars are not expected to bring back linebacker Daryl Smith from the sounds of a recent chat with Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

"It wouldn't be an extension because he's a free agent," O'Halloran answered when asked a question about bringing back Smith. "But Daryl's name isn't even brought up in conversations I have with people anymore."

Smith was originally a second round pick by the Jaguars in the 2004 NFL Draft and became a starter his rookie season. He was a steady starter ever since until the 2012 season when he dealt with a groin injury that required surgery and kept him out of all but two games.

Surprisingly there hasn't been much action with Smith on the free agent market, but he could be waiting it out just as much as the teams are to find an ideal situation.

Smith started 122 games for the Jaguars and is the franchise leader in overall tackles.
