Smith signed after practice, in plenty of time to make it to the team hotel for the first squad meeting of camp. Those at the meeting said Smith couldn't stop grinning. Understandable, since his five-year deal can max out at just under $62 million if certain incentives are met. Smith gets $33 million in guaranteed money.
But beyond the money, the offensive tackle from Baylor just wanted to get going.
"Jason Smith's a football player," Dogra said. "He really wanted to be here on time. The Rams are trying to build something with these new group of guys, and he wants to be a part of that."
Awesome to hear. Getting everyone in Camp on time is big for this team.
