Justin Smith - Contract Extension?

ESPN's John Clayton said on the 6 p.m. SportsCenter about Justin Smith:

"The three sack opener by Bengals defensive end, Justin Smith, shows how much playing with the lead can improve his production. As the Bengals have gotten better under Marvin Lewis, Smith, now in his sixth season, has performed up to the potential that made him the fourth overall pick in the 2001 draft. Playing with more leads could mean a 10+ sack season which would make Smith one of the top free agents in 2007, something the Bengals hope to prevent with a contract extension."
