On Sunday, third-round draft choice Kevin Barnes said fellow cornerback Fred Smoot was “getting a little bit older.”
Smoot, 30, responded to the rookie today.
“They come in like that until they go to three days of [minicamp] and [then] they humble,” Smoot said. “It don’t bother me. I’m going to take him through some things. I haven’t seen the guy. I don’t even know his name and I love football so that tells you [something]. I know who’s going to get drafted where. I didn’t know the kid.”
