We don't even know how this years has panned out and we surprised some people with some of our picks so why can't we wait to see how those pan out before reupping his contract?
Seems silly to me. Let's give him two drafts and we'll go from there. Why re-up so early? I'm not campaigning against Smith. I am a huge fan of him. Just.. want to take a wait and see approach before setting up our future for the future which as already been altered.
Eh, it's just money.
Unlike player contracts that have cap consequences, if McNair some day decides he doesn't like Smith any more, he can fire him.
His money, he can do what he wants with it.
I do think it is a good signal to show to the world that he is an owner who values stability and likes to reward people with the organization.
