ArmyBengal Posted June 11, 2009 Report Share Posted June 11, 2009 With Sanchez signing yesterday at the #5 spot do you think that will help Smith get his contract signed and in camp ?? It can't hurt having one of the two guys on either side signed, as they may wait until Heyward-Bey is signed by the Raiders in order to bracket Smith, but it doesn't seem that simple when looking at it again.I mean, Sanchez took less money and only signed a 5 year deal that would allow him to hit the market a year sooner than most early picks would see and I don't see the Bengals wanting to do that with Smith. However, he probably got a QB premium (as I've seen reported), so that skews things a bit or at least it would appear that way.Most have expected a hold out anyway, but I was curious what impact you feel that signing meant for the Bengals and Smith...
