I'm sure they have.

If I'm Rick Smith, I'm using that as my leverage to get him to sign before March 12th. A one year deal is on the table, until March 12th. Then it's gone. He can sign it & try to earn a better contract in the future, either with our team or another.
After March 12th, he'll have to try to convince another team to give him a one year deal if he can't find one to offer him the big time pass rusher contract.
I want him to stay, but for a very reasonable Texans friendly deal, or a slightly rich one year deal. Other than that..... he's welcome to do what's best for him.
