Broncos Shopping Alphonso Smith

NFL.com's Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Broncos are actively shopping CB Alphonso Smith with the team reportedly looking for a 5ht Round pick in return.  That would be a huge fall for a player that the Broncos thought so highly of just a year ago.

Smith has received plenty of playing time this preseason, but the emergence of Perrish Cox and Syd'Quan Thompson, along with the siging of Nate Jones in the off-season has put Smith's future in Denver in serious doubt.  His time with the Broncos to date could easily be described in last night's game against the Vikings. 

A perfect microcosm of Smith's pro career, it saw flashes of brilliance - Smith had an interception and a fumble recovery - as well as poorly-timed lowpoints - Smith tripped and fell on Javon Walker's 63-yard touchdown reception, and Smith was called for an Illegal Contact penalty on a 3rd down play in the 4th Quarter that kept a Vikings drive alive.

This is surely a story to keep our eyes on.  The Vikings are one of the teams in need of some CB depth, and Smith was likely being prominently displayed to Minnesota in last night's contest.

Another NFC North team being floated around is the Green Bay Packers...

Stay Tuned!
