Troy Smith Fails to Impress in Workout with Miami


Troy Smith was a one-time Heisman Trophy winner at Ohio State. He was drafted by the Ravens, and ended up in San Fran playing with the 49’ers last season trying to get his career on track.

Now, Smith has gone from starting six games for the 49ers last season to losing a tryout to quarterback Kevin O’Connell for the right to backup Dolphins QB Chad Henne. That might be the worst quarterback situation in the league, and Smith couldn’t hook on there.

The future for Smith is as murky as ever, as now that the Dolphins have turned him down, he’s probably going to have to wait for an injury somewhere in the league in order to get another look.

    This is also the same organization and coaching staff that turned down Drew Brees.

    Hey Matt Loede, what’s your source on this? I heard T. Smith got his look the day after O’Connell signed.

  3. Think passing on Drew Brees says it all.
    Got to see Smith play live at Wembley last season, and thought
    he had a future at the 49ers. Unfortunately his performances
    towards the end of the season, put pay to that!
    He’ll get picked up by someone though.
