Even though he was released by New Orleans this offseason, the Saints brass still has a soft spot for defensive end Will Smith.
The fact the 33-year-old was signed this week by the Patriots was good news to Saints GM Mickey Loomis.
“I’m excited he’s going to have this opportunity with a great organization and a team that has a chance to go to the Super Bowl,” Loomis told Ramon Antonio Vargas of the New Orleans Advocate.. “They’re a championship-caliber team with championship-caliber people. It’s a perfect place for Will.”
Smith is coming off an ACL injury but Loomis believes,  “Will has tread left on his tire — no doubt in my mind. As long as he does a good job of rehabbing that injury, which I know he will and has, ... he has a lot of football left in him.”
