For the moment at least, it appears the most famous alumni of Missouri Southern State University, Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith, will remain a member of that team.
Today's Denver Post reports Smith and the Broncos agreed to a restructuring of his contract to enable him to remain on the team...at least for the time being:
The Broncos and Rod Smith have agreed to a stop-gap restructuring of his contract that ensures the team will not cut him at this time. Smith, however, still could decide to walk away from the deal.
The move saves the Broncos significant cap room as Smith's salary is reduced to $1.5 million in each of the next two seasons.
Smith, 37, has played on two Super Bowl championships during his career, all of which has been spent with the Broncos.
