Rusty Smith Titans $630,000
Joe Webb Vikings $508,129
Most of those would be fine for our purposes. They have all started NFL games, and they all cost 25% or less than what we are paying Fitz. If you need a QB with experience to coach up the rookie, then hire a QB coach that has played in the NFL. It's really not that hard. Rick is just pissing away money here, and in salary cap football, every dollar counts.
For all those complaining about Fitzpatrick, has it occurred to any of you that maybe OB sees something in him that he feels he can coach up? You don't give out $7 million contracts with $4 million guaranteed to someone that's going to just sit on the bench.
