Analysis: 6 reasons why it’s not crazy for the Miami Dolphins to pay CB Sean Smith $7-8 million per season

When you factor in how important 2013 is for the Dolphins, that Smith is still a young, ascending player with elite measurables, that there aren’t many great options available in free agency, that $7-8 million is the going rate for most free agent corners, that rookies take at least 1-2 years to develop, that the Dolphins have plenty of cap room to sign Smith and make several other moves, and that they can probably back-load the contract with funny money, it doesn’t sound so crazy to pay Smith and bring him back for next season.
