Kevin Smith to the Fins' front office: "Come get me."


Detroit Lions running back Kevin Smith took a back seat to 2010 first-round draft pick Jahvid Best this past season, and as he gets ready to hit restricted free agency (if we go by the rules of the old CBA), his future is uncertain. If similar rules are adopted under the new CBA, the Lions will have the right to protect Smith with a certain draft pick compensation that will be forfeited to them by any team that signs him away. Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel -- who covers the Miami Dolphins -- reports that he happened upon Smith during a workout on Tuesday, and Smith had a message for Kelly to pass along to the Fins' front office: "Come get me." One of the big stories for the Dolphins this offseason is the future of the RB position, with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown both possibly leaving. Though Smith has had some injury issues during his NFL tenure, he has been productive when healthy. - Tim Kavanagh
