I would really be shocked if he pulled an Eli Manning. He has the chance to go be the hometown (I know he's actually from 3 hours away) hero with the Bengals.

He hired Archie Manning?
Ha. Nope. Common misconception based on Smith’s initial comments. Great article here.

“It comes down to Tom Condon, who at that time I called him ‘super agent,’” Smith said. “He’s like Scott Boras of baseball: prolific in their business, and they try to manipulate the system if they can. They’ve got great players, they have connections, and they can do certain things.“

Being an agent for rookies is a pretty easy job nowadays with the rookie wage scale. They make their real money getting them a 2nd deal.
In this day and age, any good agent needs to present you with a total marketing plan: endorsements, national sponsors, etc. You need money outside the field.
