I wasn't too far at $4.
Some guy at NFL.com says it's 12m total with 3.5m signing bonus.
Yahoo said it was 11.5m total, Twitter said 10.5m when it was announced. I guess we shall have to wait and see what the actual number is, but 4m seems to be about right. I think it will end up being higher once the full numbers are released, because it will likely be a 2 year deal close to 9m in total cost.
In any case, I don't think he would have accepted the same offer from the Texans. We are not an enticing destination for a guy on the last year or two of his career. Steve Smith wants a ring, and Baltimore is probably a good place to go for him.
