The Texans lose yet another player. With all the losses, I'm pretty sure Bill O'Brien will start combing amateur football games for bodies.

Re-upping Smith, however, was never going to happen. While he's been a wonderful addition to the squad, Smith definitely lost a step or two during the 2013 season, not showing his same explosiveness. During the second half of the season, he collected only half a sack. But he's a huge loss in the locker room, and his Ninja persona will be forever loved.

So long, Ninja, and thanks for all the sacks.
