Before signing with the Lions, offensive guard Leonard Davis talked with the Titans and Bears, according to Anwar Richardson. Smith said he talked to five teams before landing in Detroit.
Here's a great anecdote from Dave Birkett: After not returning to the Lions after last season, Smith decided to rent out his house. Mikel Leshoure, who was drafted in April, is the one renting it. Because of this, Smith is stuck living with a teammate rather than in his house now that he's back on the team.
