Free Agent Wade Smith Receiving Interest; Not Ruling Out Return To The Texans

WILL GRUBB, SportsRadio 610

Houston (CBS Houston) – Free agent guard Wade Smith has hit hit the free agent market and is receiving interest from at least two teams.

“I have specific teams that have interest.” Smith told SportsRadio 610

Smith, 32, joined the Texans in 2010 coming over from the Kansas City Chiefs. He started all 16 games at guard last season and wouldn’t rule out a return to Houston.

“It’s not out of the realm of possibility.” Smith said.

Bill O’Brien and Rick Smith could opt to go younger and cheaper with third-year guard Ben Jones. If the Texans decide to move on, Smith will pick a new team based on his chances of winning.

“I think that’s the biggest factor,” Smith told SportsRadio 610. “The opportunity to win. The opportunity to get in an environment that you feel like you can come in and actually help and contribute.”

If winning is the most important thing, the Texans might not be the best fit.

“There’s so many changes getting made. So, you don’t know what the talent level is going to be. You don’t know who is going to get let go next. You don’t know anymore,” Smith told Sean and Rich in a separate interview. “The coaching staff, I think they have a legit pedigree. I think that they’re going to get the people in place that they see fit and I think that if guys buy in, which I think we have guys that have high character that will buy in, then the ship will get righted.”

Smith calls Houston home and plans to keep his foundation, The Wade Smith Foundation, up and running even if he isn’t playing in Houston.
