He's the 17th highest paid QB in the NFL in terms of cap hit. That's lower half, for the math challenged. If you eliminate QBs on their rookie contracts, it's 17th out of 24. That's lower third.
I don't curr if Alex Smith gets paid by Blow Up Dolls with Hornets Nest Vaginas he is an over rated quarterback that the Chiefs gave too much compensation for.
Next couple of years will be tail of the tape how this works out. I will give him this season to prove he can 1) stay healthy all 16 games and playoffs 2) be effective in the passing game not rely on Jamaal Charles run game.
3) win in the playoffs getting there is not good enough.
