Re: Bengals sign LB Dhani Jones
I agree that Justin Smith isn't exactly a play-maker, and although he's over-paid, I don't think the $1M-$2M or so he's being over-paid is costing the Bengals any games. My point is that he's consistent and helping the Bengals more than he's hurting them. I think the hope going into the season was that Justin Smith would be a rent-a-player while Frostee Rucker emerges as a starter. If Rucker can't rise to the occasion, then they'll sign Smith to an extension (or franchise tag him again) and look to the draft for more help.
