Info on a changed Fred Smooooooot complements Gary Fitzgerald at the Official Site:
Then Smoot went away to Minnesota, and life changed him.
He's still outgoing and playful. He even vows that "Smoot Smack," his brand of trash talking on and off the field, will be back.

"I'll play my role," said the Jackson, Miss., native, who bought a house not far from Redskin Park after signing a five-year contract that included $7 million up front. "This is home. This is where I want to be. I can see living here for a long time after I'm done with football.

Welcome back Fred Smoot. Hogs Haven is more than confident that Smoot, changed or not, is a huge upgrade as the nickel back over either Mike Rumph or Kenny Wright. We're better off with him returned to the flock, and that's all I care about.
