08:39 AM ET 12.15 | As Miami's Sean Smith approaches unrestricted free agency, he said it seems that teams have been throwing at him less often than earlier in the season. And though that has been the case at times, Smith still holds the distinction of being targeted more than any cornerback in the league. Opposing teams have thrown 99 passes with Smith in coverage and completed 55 of them for 646 yards, according to Pro Football Focus. St. Louis' Cortland Finnegan is No. 2 on the targeted list -- with 92 -- but has allowed 67 to be completed. "Sean has done some good things," coach Joe Philbin said. "I see development. I see progress." The 55.6 completion percentage against Smith ranks 31st among 110 corners, and the 11.7 yards per completion ranks 37th best. "I'm pleased," Smith said. "It's been one of my more consistent years." Smith has knocked away seven passes and intercepted two, but his six touchdowns allowed is tied for second most behind New Orleans' Patrick Robinson, according to the web site.

Unrestricted free agency and giving up TDs equal unemployment.
