Meh when you have a great qb it covers a lot of deficiencies and you can afford to be picky and/or aggressive. KC does not have this luxury.

If Tom Brady were the highest-paid quarterback in the league, you'd have me there. It's hard to ask your quarterback to take Tom Brady money when Justin Houston's soaking in a bathtub filled with $20,000,000.

Maybe if his qb would have led by example and taken a below market contract...

Except that Smith already had.

 

Smith is, and has been, a below-market rate quarterback. Very affordable in every respect. And without the benefit of the guarantees built into Tom Brady's contract.

 

Double-check the list of names above Smith's on the Quarterbacks Being Paid list over on overthecap.com.

He's currently at a market appropriate deal, as a below average QB.

 

Next year when his charge shoots up, they will quickly move on.

Just how do these poor souls survive on such meager finances?

This. Smith could have signed a more team friendly deal but he didn't want any funny money in his contract.

New England is wheeling and dealing, that's what it takes to go to the SB.


This is very different From the norm for NE. Patriots usually give players fair, but not overblown contracts and let the greedy ones walk, while adding veteran pieces in FA that will take a paycut to play for a Super Bowl contender. Chiefs are trying to get there, but aren't quite there with depth yet, so they have to pay guys like Berry and Houston because the depth dropoff at those positions isn't close. But this year NE has 60 mill, so they have been signing higher profile players than the norm...

All that said...it doesn't matter what we do this year...I'm ready to hand the 2017-2018 Lombardi to the patriots again...let's just get a head start on the 2018-2019 season now...lol

And when that great QB plays for pennies, it give you a lot of options.

Meh... Hazard Pay, anyone? If Smith's job were as easy as Brady's, I'd concede some ground here.

And, of course, they're all paid far too much. That's a totally different topic. Tom Brady isn't taking a veteran minimum deal.

Dorsey always seems to score on second tier free agents on 1 or 2 year prove it deals and then let's them walk when they out perform their contracts. I expect some middle tier signings to fill some gaps like Defensive Tackle and Middle linebacker etc. Much like the Spiller signing already. Guys that have flashed. Parker and Abdullah and Branch are success stories with this method in recent memory. I expect more of the same.

They lost their runningback. I hope Peterson goes there. I doubt he does. I believe they will pick a runningback in the draft instead. Peterson has been overlooked by every team he has visited. He is washed up, according to many. That is why I wish him on the Raiders. Likely, not going to happen.

I think they will miss that RB. Nice FA for them though.
