Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post reports that the Miami Dolphins and CB Sean Smith are nowhere near reaching an agreement on a long-term deal that would prevent him hitting the open market.
A source claims that Smith is seeking a deal similar to that of Titans CB Jason McCourty who received a six year deal worth $43 million and included $20 million guaranteed. The team does not value Smith that much and will have until March 9 to sort out negotiations with their 2009 second round pick.
Smith had declared a few days ago that he would prefer to stay with the Dolphins. However, unless Smith is willing to accept less than his current asking price, it seems likely that he’ll be testing the free-agent market this offseason.
We have him listed as the No. 67 best available player in our Top Free Agents list: 51-100.
