We know the Raiders need help in the recieving corps and with a guy like Thomas locked up as a primary target it is time to get someone dynamic who can stretch the field. Smith this year caught 49 balls for 767 yards and 11 touchdowns. What makes him even more appealing is his ability to attract penalties. He forced well over two hundred yards in pass interference and defensive holding penalties.
All in all, that makes Smith a 1000 yard receiver with double digit touchdowns. The Ravens only have about three million in cap space which means tagging him is very unlikely unless they figure out a way to cut some serious fat.
Contract: Desean Jackson is the high Pierre Garcon the low. 4 years, $30 million, $16 million guaranteed.
As far as I am concerned, Wisniewski is all but gone and I will not miss him for a moment. According to Steve Corkran he is looking forward to free agency and he can head there the same way he plays center, with his face or butt in the dirt. Wisniewski is one of the most overrated players in the NFL media’s eyes and for all the talk of him being such an intelligent player he makes a boatload of mistakes.
Contract: Just above Max Unger. 5 years, $32 million dollars $14 million guaranteed.
