Smith's last season of his rookie contract was paying him 6.5 million. Most guys in the NFL playing RT average around 4-5 million dollars, however it's just a matter of time before this position catches up. I can't see Smith's agent going backwards from his rookie contract. If he was averaging around 6-7 million he is going to want his client to have a raise. Most likely asking 9 settling for 7-8 with a nice chunk up front.
I do feel that Reedy is right in saying someone is going to pay Smith big dollars (Hmmmm Redskins and Philly). It really depends on how much the Bengals value Smith and if they feel his production can be replaced by a cheaper alternative (Collins or the draft).
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
