Trying to compare players without looking at the financial ramifications of each player is quite pointless.
It is very clear that you are trying to create some active discussion (troll) on the subject so why don't you tell everyone what Smith's cap number would have been the next three years. This way we will have a better understanding of the decisions that were facing the front office.
oh this is pretty tame
aceboogie trolled the boards all last year because he thought it was the biggest blunder of the first round when we selected star over deandre hopkins. he quite infamously guaranteed that hopkins would be a bigger impact player for the texans than star would ever be for us.
oh yeah, and his off the charts football acumen resulted in a self-imposed one month vacation when we actually selected a wide receiver with our pick in the draft.
