Put On Your Smithiak Hat: What Would You Pay DeMeco Ryans, Owen Daniels, And/Or Dunta Robinson?

Much has been written, here and elsewhere, about the ongoing contract drama with DeMeco Ryans, Owen Daniels, and Dunta Robinson. What we haven't really delved into, however, is what you, the Houston Texans fan, would pay those guys if you were spending Bob McNair's money. As such, I figure it's high time we put our fanaticism to the test.

So put on your best Rick Smith hat and tell us in the Comments below: What would be the terms of the best and final contract offer you'd make DeMeco, OD, and/or Dunta? Keep in mind that we're talking NFL contracts, so the guaranteed money is the key. As a yardstick, here are what appear to be the current most lucrative multi-year linebacker, tight end, and cornerback deals. Although those deals are not determinative, you know that each player's respective agent is using those numbers as a guide.

Make the call, BRB. If you're Rick Smith, what's your final offer to each of the aforementioned disenchanted Texans?
