A few weeks ago, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported that the conversations and the negotiation between Roquan Smith and the Chicago Bears were "heating up".

Well, we now have a clearer idea of the ballpark of the potential contract extension that Roquan could receive at any minute now.
ESPN analyst Bill Barnwell believes Smith is set to make a lot of money, but he doesn't think the 4-year NFL Vet is going to become the highest-paid LB in the league.
«Roquan Smith emerged as one of the league's best middle linebackers in 2020, and at 25, he is young enough to still be a key player once the Bears come out of their rebuild,» Barnwell wrote on May 26. «I'm not sure he will top the deals signed by Bobby Wagner and C.J. Mosley at their respective peaks, but a four-year extension should come in at around $72 million.»

At this moment, the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league is Darius Leonard of the Indianapolis Colts. He makes a little over $19 million per year and is followed by Mosley, who made around $17 million last year, per Spotrac. Smith decided to have the negotiation by himself since he doesn't have an agent at the moment. It will be a very interesting case to follow this off-season!
