It seems like every few days there’s a new development in the Roquan Smith holdout situation. First it was assumed it was an offset language snafu, but then the Chicago Bears mention to the media that there’s a helmet rule hangup. Then a national football reporter refutes that by saying it’s about the money, but then a beat writer has other sources claiming that it has more to do with off the field behavior.
At this point it’s hard to know what to believe.
But then we’ve had a sideline report during the Bears Hall of Fame Game say one thing, then another Chicago beat reporter had more information shared with them, so we’re back to being confused.
The latest discovery about Roquan Smith from his high school days just adds to this bewildering situation.
Is Smith a trailblazer, is he selfish, is he the bad guy, is he a pawn?
