This qualifies as excellent news. In less than two (2) years in Houston, Smith has done an unbelievable job cleaning up the mess made by the previous regime. Not that I ever believed it was in danger of happening, but losing Smith would have been a huge blow. With the way he's drafted, I'm ecstatic that Bob McNair is going to give him the opportunity to run the next several drafts.
Next up: An extension for the other half of Smithiak.
