Despite reaching a deal with cornerback Dunta Robinson late Friday, the Chiefs apparently are still in the market for more secondary help, reaching out to Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith early Saturday.

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Chiefs “have shown an interest in CB Sean Smith early on in the contact period.”

Translated, they were on the phone a half hour ago, negotiating but not agreeing or anything.

Of course, long before the days of legal tampering, Smith was trying to cram the toothpaste back in the tube at the suggestion of old-fashioned tampering.

Adding Smith would legitimize a secondary that needs the help opposite Brandon Flowers.

Depending on the money in the Robinson deal, the Chiefs could easily justify using him as a nickel corner or even at safety if they landed Smith. Robinson’s a good tackler, and even if he’s not the same cover player he was, he adds value.
