Default Saints DE Will Smith- 6 yrs/ $70 million

26 mil guaranteed. (nfl radio)

thats approaching elite qb and LT money, and probably makes todays great DE's more valuable than shutdown cornerbacks.

i think we will be drafting one or 2 next season. league economics practically dictate we do so.

It doesn't help that Aaron Smith is getting older, we have no depth as DE, and Keisel isn't as good as we all hoped.

However, Smith was probally the best defensive player for the Saints last year. So I am not shocked by the new contract, I however am shocked by the price.
