And this brings up a pretty obvious point. The Washington Commanders need to discuss trading for Smith. They need to do more than that, they need to inquire about it. And if the price is high, you still need to consider it.

The Washington Commanders have one of the worst linebacker groups in the NFL. It is their biggest glaring weakness. Cole Holcomb is solid. Outside of that, they really don’t have anything. Jamin Davis looked solid the last few games of his rookie season. Most of the year was a disaster for him though, and he looked lost.

David Mayo came in and looked decent. But the fact that fans were calling for him to start should tell you what you need to know about the situation. Mayo is an eight-year pro with 170 tackles and two sacks in his career. Not someone you bring in to start.
