Steve Smith on Fred Smoot: 'I destroyed his career'
I had heard some say that it was the Vikings scheme that did his career in, but I do recall his poor tackling and tripping over his own feet against the Bills more than once didn't help
Does Smith's claim of ruining Smoot's career have any merit? The cornerback played well enough in his first four seasons to land a $34 million contract from the Vikings in 2005. A year and a half later, he was unceremoniously dumped, finishing out his NFL career as a coverage liability with the Redskins.
