Re: Reports: Mutual Interest in Antonio Smith Extension
Cap space now for dead money later doesn't make ANY sense to me unless you think your window is closing in the next couple of seasons. That is like paying bills with a credit card. Great! You get to keep the power on this month, but next month when the bill is due you are going to have to steal from Peter to pay Paul.
Smith may understand that his best chance at getting a "final contract" may come in the form of a Texans extension, and force him to be reasonable. But he might opt to try the FA market at 33. Who knows.
