Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Gene Smith turned down a contract extension from owner Wayne Weaver. Why, you ask? Smith told the Jacksonville Times-Union that he couldn't accept a deal to add years to his pact when other members of the front office will see their deals expire. "A contract was extended to me and I declined it,” Smith told the newspaper. “I did not think I deserved an extension based on the conditions. Our scouts, and other employees weren’t being extended.
