Rams rookie OT Smith guaranteed $33 million

The contract that Rams rookie OT Jason Smith signed Thursday is worth a maximum of $61.775 million over five years, with $33 million guaranteed, a league source told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.

Smith, the No. 2 overall pick in April’s NFL draft, received one less year and $8.7 million less in guaranteed money than No. 1 selection Matthew Stafford did from the Lions. No. 5 pick Mark Sanchez received a five-year, $60 million contract, with $28 million guaranteed, from the Jets, so the contract parameters for No. 3 selection Tyson Jackson (Chiefs) and No. 4 choice Aaron Curry (Seahawks) seem to be set somewhere between that and Smith’s deal.

Jackson and Curry are two of 11 first-round picks who, as of 4:45 p.m. ET Sunday, had yet to sign.
