USA Today talks about the continued holdout of Andre Smith, saying that it could be the Bengals lowballing the OT:
Andre Smith, a rookie tackle from Alabama taken sixth overall by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2009 draft, remains one of a handful of unsigned first-rounders. But though Smith has stepped on a few landmines before playing his first NFL down (he was out of shape this offseason, left the scouting combine early without informing league officials and has had agents going through a revolving door) the Cincinnati Enquirer suggests the Bengals could be largely to blame for Smith’s holdout since they are only offering Smith a contractual package with a total worth of $33 million. Darrius Heyward-Bey, taken seventh overall by the Raiders, received a package worth up to $38 million and Jets QB Mark Sanchez, the No. 5 pick, got a deal worth as much as $60 million.
