02:13 PM ET 04.03 | Free agent linebacker Daryl Smith has left the St. Louis Rams facilities without a contract, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The ex-Jacksonville Jaguars standout has had a tough time finding a home as a 31-year veteran coming off of a season in which he played just two games due to a groin injury that cut his season quite short. Last year aside, Smith is one of the most underrated players in all of football. Languishing in complete anonymity with the Jaguars, Smith has been extremely productive since coming into the league in 2004. In his nine NFL seasons, Smith has recorded 100 or more tackles twice and had 21.5 sacks in his career, a nice total for a 4-3 linebacker. He's also proven to be very durable except for 2012, playing 14 or more games every other season.

He'll get a shot. Looking at his numbers he deserves it.

I don't know.. He's looking for big money coming off an injury.

He'll temper his expectations and land himself a gig with a good team.
