Smith heads restricted free-agent list
Steve Smith's Super Bowl performance will likely earn him some lucrative offers in the restricted free-agent market.
One of the players who grabbed the national spotlight was Steve Smith.
Smith may have had only had four catches, but three of them were highlight material. Smith made an excellent move on his 39-yard touchdown reception that allowed him to get off the line freely. On two other catches he displayed the ability to go up and catch the ball at its highest point despite tight coverage.
General managers around the league were looking at his performance closely, because he is now a restricted free agent. And what they saw could convince them that Smith could be this year's Laveranues Coles.
