Linebacker Daryl Smith leaves Rams without deal


The St. Louis Rams brought in former Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Darryl Smith for a free agent visit on Tuesday but Smith left town without a deal.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, no deal between Smith and the Rams appears imminent and he is expected to take more visits. Smith has spent his entire nine-year career with the Jaguars and been remarkably durable during his time in the league. Smith played in at least 14 games in each of his first eight seasons before a groin injury sidelined him for most of last season.

Smith posted at least 97 tackles a year in each of his last three full seasons with the Jaguars. The Rams are looking for help and Smith could be plugged in as a starter if he ends up in St. Louis.
