The Cleveland Browns reportedly have signed restricted free agent defensive tackle Shaun Smith (http://www.newsnet5.com/news/11214990/detail.html) to an offer sheet. Smith, who currently players for the Bengals, was tendered at the lowest level of $850,000 (http://www.bengals.com/news/news.asp?story_id=5908).
Because Smith was not drafted, the Bengals will receive no compensation if they choose not to match the offer.
The offer sheet has a four-year duration, but the other terms are unknown. It remains to be seen whether the offer includes a poison pill aimed at making it impossible, as a practical matter, for the Bengals to match.
