I don't think they will. They'll draft another edge rusher. Smith will compete with that new rookie, as well I'm sure they'll try to keep Phillips (even if it's a backup role at a smaller contract). He's proving he's worth keeping around. He also made several pass deflections last night. Those are just as good as a tackle for no yards gained. I think Ayers might actually be the one who isn't brought back next year. He's basically lost the starting job to Phillips at this point. He's pretty much done here.
