Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Alex being cleared to play, while a courageous story, was the worst possible outcome for the team in terms of winning.

If Alex failed his physical, the Skins could have put him on the PUP and gained 12M in future cap credits. Since he passed the physical, you cant PUP him, no 12M in cap credit and he will have to carry 3 QBs on the active roster. An active roster spot that will be taken by a player that will not be taking a single snap all season.

Best case scenario - he failed the physical, we carry 2 Qbs, we get 12M in cap credit, cut him in 2021 and absorb about 10M in dead cap.
