Sean Smith free agency rumors: Raiders, other teams chasing Chiefs free agent CB

New, comments

We've all accepted the Kansas City Chiefs are losing free agent Sean Smith, right? He's reportedly being chased by the Oakland Raiders and three other teams, according to a report from Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The San Francisco 49ers are another team that's been mentioned, although I don't often buy into the whole unnamed teams thing. Outside of those two I haven't heard these teams named. It could be to the point where there can only be so many bidders because the price will be so high. If Janoris Jenkins reportedly gets $12 million per year, what will Smith make?

The money in free agency this year is even more than I expected. I thought Smith would be looking for a $10 million per year contract but it appears now that he could be making even more than that. Three years ago he was screwed by a bad cornerback market but this year's market is much, much different.

I just hope it's not Oakland. The Raiders signed a big money guard (Kelechi Osemele), big money pass rusher (Bruce Irvin) and they're looking at a big money cornerback. Hmm...
