Many of you already know Reggie's story. He was a stud at Oklahoma, drafted in the 3rd by the 49ers, and after three seasons of never really getting a chance he has found himself in Carolina with an opportunity to contribute to something very special.

Smith started his rookie season 3rd on the depth chart behind Dashon Goldson and Michael Lewis. Both at the time were pretty solid starters. The next season it was Taylor Mays starting and Goldson splitting time with Donte Whitner. This past season, with the emergence of Dashon Goldson, Smith once again found himself as a sub. Pretty tough trying to get a starting gig with that depth, sort of reminds me of the Mike Goodson situation.

He's got two picks in his very limited time with the niners. One of them went to the house for 6, and the other was brought back to the ten. I truly apologize for the video quality...

We need guys like this forcing turnovers, putting the ball in scoring position. I think the competition is wide open coming into training camp, and in my opinion Reggie Smith has every thing it takes to be a successful starter in this league. Sherrod Martin is an absolute liability in this passing league and his days are done.

No way he can be any worse than what we have now. Put him in coach.

Idc if he's a stud or not, I just want him to be more reliable than our current starters. Martin in particular.

I also hope Jordan Pugh never sees the field this year.

I went on the niners forum when we first signed him finding threads about him. And it seems he has a tackling problem like Martin.

So every post is supposed to be nothing but glowingly positive? What's the point of that?

We've had some of the worst safety play in the NFL now for the past couple of years. That's why we went out and signed two promising young free agents to compete back there.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
