The Eagles released Marcus Smith (listed at 6'3", 251):

Do you think he is worth a flier to build LB depth? He was definitely over-drafted by the Eagles but could be a useful addition to our LB unit. Thoughts?

I'd sign him to a camp contract and work him out. What could go wrong? Either he contributes and gets added to the 53 or he's cut and we have what we started with.

Seems like the kind of move Quinn is a fan of.

He might not have been able to get a good feel in Philly. Sometimes certain players don't respond to certain coaches or systems. Maybe in Detroit, he would flourish and be used to the best of his abilities. Could be a quality signing but I think that New England will snatch him up and turn him into a 12 sack per year machine.
