You really think he should be paid on par with Frank Gore and our starting QB????
smith isnt worth that much
Gore held out a bit for a reason
I agree, Smith is not worth that much, but neither is Goldson. Smith gets the premium for being a QB.
Has Gore said what his reason was? I think he's just looking for job security and doesn't want to be wondering what's going to happen at the end of the year. Think about it from his perspective. He may not necessarily want more money, but more security. If he plays on his current contract, which ends at the end of the year, he risks uncertainty in his future due to potential injuries or other issues. It's the same reason everyone hates to be franchise tagged.
