Vontae Davis gets Sean Smith, self in hot water

We all know Sean Smith is eager to test the free agent market. He's going to have suitors.

But none of the contact that will happen starting March 9 when pending free agents are allowed to speak with all clubs is supposed to be happening yet. If it is happening, it is tampering.

That, of course, happens all the time but is rarely proven.

Well, if you believe former Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis, there is tampering afoot relative to Sean Smith.

"I seen my dude Sean Smith last night he said he talking to KC him & B Flowers will makes (sic) a good Duo," Davis tweeted in the last 20 minutes.

Whaaat?

It suggests Smith is talking to an NFL team when he shouldn't be -- specifically the Kansas City Chiefs. It is coming from a close -- albeit ridiculously dumb -- friend of the Dolphins cornerback. And a storm could be on the way over the matter if the NFL chooses to pursue it.

For the record, I tweeted agent David Canter, who represents Smith, to see if the tampering allegation is true.

"Don’t believe everything players tell you Armando. Rule number 1 of football journalism," he replied.

Well, I think I'm pretty versed in journalism and that isn't Rule 1. Rule 1 is get it straight from the horse's mouth and get it on the record.

This comes from Davis's mouth as his account is verified. And I believe he simply slipped. That's neither here nor there. So I asked Canter if he is saying Davis is lying?

"I say clients haven’t ever spoken to teams prior to free agency so his statement isn’t true," Canter replied.

I believe Canter. I believe Sean Smith probably hasn't spoken to the Chiefs. But notice he didn't say he hadn't spoken to the Chiefs on Smith's behalf.

Here's an interesting twist: Moments after I retweeted Davis's tweet and sought out Canter, the former Dolphins cornerback tweeted that his account had been hacked.

"My Twitter was Hack I did not see Sean Smith last night!!" he wrote in his own inimitable style for the language.

That's possible. And it's also possible Davis is doing damage control because he was informed he'd just uncovered his good friend.

I will be seeking comment from the Dolphins on this matter. They probably will have none. They are, however, aware of the issue.

[Update: The Miami Dolphins have no comment.]

[Update: Smith denied on twitter he met with the Chiefs. "Whoa, no I didn't."  he tweeted. Then he added: "OK, this is getting out of hand. I've never talked to any other team besides the Miami Dolphins."]

[Update: Smith also said he did speak with former Dolphins coach now KC DB coach Al Harris recently and told Davis about that and that Davis misunderstood somehow that it meant Smith is talking to the Chiefs.]

[Update: The Chiefs have no comment.]

Again, the denials never mention whether Smith's agent talked to the Chiefs.

The NFL has no comment but it does, according to Herald beat reporter Adam Beasley, investigate allegations of tampering, regardless of whether the offended team files a complaint or not. The NFL does prefer a complaint be filled.

Meanwhile, Davis comes off as initially transparent but not necessarily intelligent relative to outing his friend and then his backtracking.

[Update: Smith now is basically conceding that Davis lied about having his account hacked. "He panicked ... Not the best idea but I appreciate it tho."]

[Update: And now Sean Smith has blocked me on twitter. These guys are brilliant.]

Canter has a spill he has to clean up.

And now we shall wait to see if Sean Smith signs eventually with the Kansas City Chiefs or perhaps the Philadelphia Eagles, with whom Canter met (for undisclosed reasons) during the Indianapolis combine.

Craig M,

Do you have any plans for your upcoming 3rd birthday?

If Chance Warmack is there at 12, not only will I have bird in hand, but that will be the fastest card back to podium for Goodell.

A 2ND ROUNDER MEANS NOTHING AS LONG AS OUR GARAGE MANAGER STAYS AS THE DOLPHIN'S GM ..

SWISH........


TAKE A NAP ...

AT LAST,

AN OLD POSTER WITH DIGNITY AND AN HONOR.........

CARLITO FROM GOLFITO...........


NICE TO SEE YOU POSTING CARLITO ..WISH YOU ALL THE BEST ,,,,,

What up Aloco!

ANY ONE ONE KNOWS IF THE STOCK MARKET IS READY TO BE SHORTEN ?

God, Armando is the worst beat writer ever, trying to manufacture a story out of nothing.

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smith ,and more so Davis keep proving to everyone how stupid they are. Im just shocked. How can Vontae be this stupid? I have more faith in Philbin every day. Sparano was fine with these guys because he was on the same intellectual level, Philbin is obviously light years ahead intelligence. Philbin is weeding out the idiots and Smith should be next. Let him walk, he has proven nothing and wants to be paid like hes one of the best. Patterson and Marshall will be fine, draft a corner first or second.

Aloco same to you.

The big question...

Will Jeff Ireland sink or swim this offseason?

The smaller question...

Will Mr. Ross ruin the history & tradition of the Dolphins with a tacky new uniform?

SS

PHINS 78 ...

IF YOU LET SMITH WALK ,YOU R BACK TO SQUARE ONE ,,,,,,,,,,,,

YOU WILL NOT SUVIVE WITHOUT SMITH ,PERIOD .

Voantae, don't be afraid, you can keep on talking on Internet all you want; nothing will happen to you. However, in Real World, your buddy SS might be getting shaken up at this very moment. Yes?

A 2ND ROUNDER MEANS NOTHING AS LONG AS OUR GARAGE MANAGER STAYS AS THE DOLPHIN'S GM ..

_______________________________________________________

Ireland did a lot better in last years draft. Early indications anyway.

I think even Egnew was at least a 4th rder on most boards.

Only beef I have is we drafted no recievers until the 7th rd. Now we have to pray for one in free agency.

There is no doubt in my mind that the philosophy Ireland learned from Parcells doesn't work unless you have the Tuna on the field getting in guy's heads.

I'm hoping Ireland is learning from his mistakes and just focusing on getting some talented players.

ALoco,

We'll disagree that they're good players. IMO, we're better off without them. Neither is worth the headache that they come with.

YG,

I'm already on record as saying we were wrong to trade two seconds for Marshall. I'm not getting your point. How are the two trades connected?

I'm saying the Chiefs would have been better signing Moore in FA and drafting one of these kids in a later round to develop. They've added a stopgap (nothing more) and they'll realize that in about a year or two. They did the same with Cassel and that was a dumb move too.

GRAIG M....

ALL THE GOOD PLAYERS ARE KIDS,,,,,, FORGET ABOUT GETTING NEW PLAYERS ACT LIKE DOCTORS .........

WE R STILL IN THE CELLAR,DON'T LET ANY ONE TELLS YOU OTHERWISE ...

Aloco Smith was rated one of the worst cbs in the league last year. He allowed the most first downs and allowed the highest percentage of tds in the league when in the red zone.

You go ahead and build your team around him, I'll take my chance in the draft with a high pick and let Patterson and Marshall fight for the starting spot on the opposite side. Smith is one of THE WORST CBS IN THE LEAGUE,,,,,,,,,,,PERIOD.

more draft picks please

Say goodbye to Sean "Hands of Stone" Smith. Seems he already has one foot out the door.

YG @6:16.

Good One. LOL..

The Difference Is Dashi Came Away Supersmart. And Vontae was Just Athletic. Like The Ninja Turtles.

Aloco (Clown),

Since You Love Fact Checking Dashi!! You Can Put My 95% To The Test!! When Has Dashi Been Wrong!! When Dashi says Write it Down!!

You Still Mad Dashi Called A TD Drive Right Before It Happened!! Understood.

Dasi Gives You This. First Time All Year!! Or Basically EVER!! You Made A POST That Was Completely Legible!!

Dashi Must Really Get To You!!

Right VONTAE!!

Dashi Can Call You Vontae Right!!

HOW COME HW WILL BE IN ANOTHER TEAM MAKING AROUND 8 MILLION A YEAR ?

DON'T THESE OTHER TEAMS HAVE THE SAME INFO YOU HAVE ?


SMITH IS PLAYING IN A CELLAR TEAM WITH 1/2 OF THE TEAM IS NOT NFL CALIBER ....

Can't decide which is the bigger loser, Vontae or Sean Smith.

Wait a second, I can decide. Vontae is just stupid. Smith is a loser for the immature and childish way he acts. And by the way, he sucks.

Which starting player on the Dolphins isn't an NFL quality player in your opinion Aloco?

Dashi.......
I REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAID ,P.MANNING WILL WIN THE SB .AND YOU TOLD US TO (( WRITE IT DOWN ))!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He blocked my boy? For reporting the facts?

Eff Sean Smith. What a turd!

ALoco,

How come Albert Haynesworth got a $100 milion contract. How come a team signed Henne after his time with us? All these teams think it will be different with them. Teams will like Smith's size and physical skills. They'll think it will different if he's with them. Are you saying teams don't make mistakes?

78;;;;;;;;


D.THOMAS
BESS
FASANO
THESE ARE A FEWOF MANY..

It is always a big gamble to acquire any Player specially QBs that have thrived under great Coaches.

YG,

I Will Call You S.Smith. A Nudge Smarter Than Vontae. Not Much Though.

See Ya Later...

GRAIG M.... ARE YOU SAYING THE DOLPHIN'S MANAGEMENT IS THE BEST IN THE NFL ?

ARE YOU SAYING WE R THE BEST TO VALUE TELENT ?


are you saying our garage manager is the best to draft players ?

THEN ,WHY WE R IN THE CELLAR ?


PS...NOTICE ,MOST PLAYERS LWEAVE OUR TEAM ,THEY FLOURISH ELSE WHERE ..

Aloco remember you said another team is going to pay him 8 million a year. I want to revisit that statement when we see what happens.

And if he does get paid,( you asked why it would happen if I think he's no good) it will be for the same reason we payed Wilson and Wilford in free agency, teams make mistakes all of the time.

What information do they have over me? Am I mistaking what I've been watching for three years?

Let me guess bro, "just wait phins78, this will be the year he will prove he's great". How long are you willing to gamble on hope?

phins...i think we will pay smith around 8 million b/c we can't afford to lose him ...

Nope!

Never Said Write It Down On Peyton.

My First Write It Down This Year!! Was The Fins Are Going To Resign Jake Long.

On Peyton!

That Is My 2nd Favorite Qb Of All Time!! Of Course I Want Him To Win The SB!!

Dashi Also Wanted The Fins To Sign Peyton, Last Year!!

To Dashi As Long As Tom Brady Lost!! Dashi Is Happy!!

But Sure!! Keep Telling Yourself That!!

And Going Back And Researching It!! Is Not That Hard For You!!

IT WAS AFTER NEW YEAR!! RIGHT?!!

CUT AND PASTE!! CLOWN!!

WRITE IT DOWN!!

dashi...

you got to be more modest ,MOE HUMBLE ....

NOT ARROGANT .......

YOU CAN ADMIT YOU MADE A MISTAKE ,,,,WE WILL RESPECT YOU FOR THAT ...

NO
ONE
IS
PERFECT........NO ONE....

Aloco at 6:57, you're entitled to your opinion. I don't agree that Smith is better than Fasano who has actually made plays to help the team win OR Bess which is just a silly statement. Bess does everything asked of him and Philbin, Sparano, Parcells, Daboll,Henning,Sherman and countless others have praised Bess for his route running, great hands, run after the catch ability, and work ethic. What have we EVER heard about Smith from ANYONE? AND how many big plays have we watched Bess make compared to Sean Smiths zero big plays?

Dude, he sucks, the proof is on tape.

Also Thomas isn't a starter. Your contention was Smith plays on a bad team and gets no help. Thomas is a backup on offense.

Aloco good talk, lets remember and talk again when we see what happens.

PHINS.... PLAYERS GET PRAISED FOR MANY REASON.ONE OF THEM ,IS TO TAKE ADANDAGE OF THE PLAYERS WHEN CONTRACT COMES UP ....


WHEN THE MANAGEMENT KNOW THEY WILL NOT GET A PRICE CUT FROM A PLAYER ,THEY ELECT TO IGNORE THAT PLAYER.....


IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY ......

I HAVE 2 DAYS OFF WORK .AT LAST ..........


I HOPE THEY WOULD DO OK WITHOUT ME ,,,,

And if another team pays him well remember the debate is wether he is worth it. We will have to wait until next december to see who was right.

I say, he doesn't deserve that kind of money.

You say he's earned it and will prove he's worth it.

I look forward to seeing it play out.

When Has Dashi Been Wrong!! When Dashi says Write it Down!!


Posted by: Dashi™ | February 27, 2013 at 06:52 PM

1. Denver will win it all
2, SF will win it all
3. Ran out of chances LOL

ALoco,

Can you show me where I said 'the Dolphins management is the best in the NFL'. You're doing EXACTLY what YG did with me today.....twisting my words to make them say something I never said. Don't do that.

And for the record, we're NOt in the beasement. 11 teams finished behind us in the standings. Last year there were 7 (so we weren't in the basement last year either). Or the year before.

What else ya go?

Humble?

Dashi Has Been Humbler This Year!! But I Will Never Be Fully Humble.

Arrogant?

Dashi Has Never Said He Is Arrogant!! Cocky and Conceited? Yes!! Arrogant? NO!! Dashi Has Never Said He Is Better Than Anyone!! Never!! Dashi Doesn't Compare Himself To Anyone!! That For Someone As Narcissistic As Dashi!! Is Very Rare!!

And Aloco,

Dashi Has Always Admitted!! I'm Not Perfect!! God Is Not Perfect!! But I Am Right!! About 95% Of The Time!!

(Keyword Being "About")

GRAIG.


IN SOME OF YOUR POSTS YOU R IMPLYING ONE THING ,WITHOUT SAYING IT OUT RIGHT ,TO GVE YOU ROOM TO SQUEEZE OUT OF IT .......

IF YOU SAY (( WE WILL BE BETTER WITHOUT THEM )),YOU R IMPLYING THAT EVERY TIME WE GET READY OF A PLAYER ,WE END UP BETTER WITHOUT THAT PLAYER ,WHICH IS UNCORRECT .........

WHICH MEANS ,YOU R SAYING ,WE HAVE THE BEST DESION MAKING MANAGEMENT IN THE NFL ...

You really don't want to let SS go to another Team. If he falls in the hands of a good Coach, he might become one of the premier corners in the League. Then you will throw tantrums.

Clown In Hiding!!

Again!! None Of Those Times Dashi Said Write It Down!! That I wanted Them To Win!! Yes!! But Never Did Dashi Say Write It Down!! During The Playoff's!!

If You Betted With My Playoff Predictions!! Your Bad!! Not Mine!!

And 2 Times Out Of The 1001 Comments Dashi Made Throughout This Past Season!! Is Better Than I Thought!!

Your Right!!

Dashi Is Right About 98% Of The Time!! THANKS!! CLOWN!!

DASHI..

NOTICE,I DIDN'T CALL YOU NAMES.

BUT,YOU DO.........

One of the cornerstones of a Great Football Organization is a Great HC.

.....Vontae Davis enters Roger Goodells office in regards to tampering allegations......
==================================================

GOODELL: Come in Mr. Davis and have a seat.
-------------------------------------------

DAVIS: Whazzup Cheif(So ignorant he thinks Goodell wants to know how well he likes playing for Indianapolis)?

So whut all dis be's about?
===========================

GOODELL: Thanks for coming in Vontae, we want to ask you some questions about a recent text you made.
------------------------------------------------

DAVIS: You mean Tynecia(with a wry grin)? Aw Man! That shawty CRAZY, I'as jus playing Dawg. She like white dudes dooh, WHAZZUP(Bigger Smile)? You steppin to a lil sumpin-sumpin?
==================

GOODELL: (Takes a deep breath, rolls eyes and realizes the "Dumb-Dumb" rumors are legit) - Ah....(Thinking: CHRIST ALMIGHTY!)....No Vontae, this isn't about Shaniqua, Taweekwa......whatever and NO, I'm NOT "steppin" to anyhing-anywhere.

We called you in to ask you about Sean Smith and a text you made regarding the Kansas City Chiefs?
-----------------------------------------------

DAVIS: Ah.......The Kansas City Who's?
======================================

GOODELL: Chiefs!
----------------

DAVIS: You mean nat time I wuz hacked? Yeah, yeah man, I was........
=============

GOODELL:(cutting him off mid sentence)VONTAE! Be very VERY careful how you answer these questions. The TEXT has been verified and your account has NOT been hacked.
-------------------------------------------------

DAVIS: Ah.........ummmmmmmmm..........

Yo.............ah............(Big Sigh).........

Man,....can I uh,....can I call my Grand Mammy?
===============================================


ROTFLMAO - If nothing else, Vontae Davis is "Stump Dumb" and "Stupid Too". I don't care how many times trading him **MIGHT** come back to bite us on the Bum. I for ONE, am quite happy and content with no longer representing MY Beloved Dolphins!

Can you imagine giving someone this FREAKING STUPID a Multi-Million Dollar Contract?

There's something wrong with a World in which ignorance of this magnitude is rewarded with Riches.

Just Saying........

(STILL: ROTFLMFAO!)

Actually ALoco, you are reading into my comments. Try reading what I'm saying rather than guessing or changing the meaning. I know you're a bright guy and are capable of that.

I'm done for the night....I'll bid you a'dieu

The future of Jeff Ireland depends not so much on the success and failure of Tannehill as many People believe but on that of Joe Philbin.

GRAIG.


I WILL GIVE YOU THE BENFIT OF THE DOUBT.......I WILL TRAY HARDER NEXT TIME WHILE I AM READING YOUR POSTS ,,,WISH YOU WELL ..

Right before this blog went up another one was there that said Dolphins must know Krypien better than most. Then it was gone and the Smith story took it's place. Anybody know who Krypien is?

OSCAR,, YOU ALWAYS STATE THE OBVIOUS.

Right, ALoco?

Odin,

Your Vontae/Goodell post is probably your best ever. What makes it so funny is that it sounds so realistic about what Davis would probably say. LOL...

Dashi Is Right About 98% Of The Time!! THANKS!! CLOWN!!

Posted by: Dashe™ | February 27, 2013 at 07:28 PM


You are playing with numbers, I'm not. What you mean to say is that 98% of the times that you aren't wrong, you are right. That translates to still being wrong most of the time :)

ODIN...

WHAT WOULD YOU PLAY FOR US TONIGHT ?

Posted by: Craig M | February 27, 2013 at 07:34 PM

You should follow your own advise. What a posters says and what you actually interpret is the difference between day and night. LOL....

Again, I state the obvious because the majority of People don't see the obvious. What do you think will happen to SS if he fell into, less say, Belichick.s hands. Same as happened with Welker, perennial all- Pro.
