Former Missouri Tiger standout Justin Smith is still not under contract with the Cincinnati Bengals. Smith, who was selected fourth over in April’s NFL Draft, is the only draft pick not to have been signed. The Bengals say that even if he were to sign today, he would not be ready to play in their season opener against New England on Sunday. Smith could be the first Number #1 pick to go into a season without a contract since offensive tackle L.J. Shelton missed Arizona’s first to-games back in 1999.
