Price Tag for Steve Smith is a 3rd Round Pick. Should Chargers Pursue?

According to the Charlotte Observer, Steve Smith could be available for a third round draft pick. Are they asking for too much or should we just jump right on this and make something happen?

Steve Smith will probably need to restructure his deal before we pursue him, but it sounds like a great deal for us to look into. In 2008, we traded a 2nd round draft pick for Chris Chambers. Smith is a much better athlete and receiver than Chambers ever was.

The only receivers that we have on the roster right now are Patrick Crayton, Vincent Brown, Seyi Ajirotutu and Richard Goodman. None of these guys are starters at this point in their careers. Bringing Smitty onto the roster should not be ignored.

Our priorities in free agency have to be Vincent Jackson, Eric Weddle, Kevin Burnett, and Jeromey Clary. I wonder where Malcom Floyd lies on this priority list.

If we do bring Smith onto the team, what happens to Malcom? I would assume that he drops even further on the priority list and he will look to sign on with another team. So the real question might be: Would you rather have M80 and the third round pick next year OR Smitty?
