George Smith bumps Vanderbear total to six — oh, and Reshard Langford's an Eagle

George Smith has signed a free-agent contract with the Chicago Bears, putting the number of former Commodores in the Bears camp to six.

Which means he'll be competing against Earl Bennett, his Vandy teammate of three years, as well as 2009 draft picks Juaquin Iglesias of Oklahoma (third round) and Johnny Knox of Abilene Christian (fifth round).

Don't bet on George. His photo will forever be in the dictionary under "Perseverance." And his huge third-down catch in the Music City Bowl set up the winning field goal. But he had trouble catching balls in traffic last season, and I guarantee you Earl isn't worried about him, though he may be worried about Iglesias and some other guys.

Oh, and Reshard Langford is going to the Eagles' camp. I'm telling you, Reshard's going to be a tough guy to cut and the Eagles seem like a good fit for him.
