Crossing my fingers this $40 million was worth it..
The difference, I think, with Alex Smith is that he takes care of himself and he has steadily improved year after year. I would be concerned if he had a great 2015 season, but the last two seasons weren't as good. However, he's steadily been on a trajectory upward not down.

Now, having said that, the stress of playing in DC and the question of the health of our offensive line might factor in. I think by the time the season starts, Smith will have some weapons, so I'm not too concerned about that. Just want our OL to protect him.

Re: Redskins trade for Alex Smith

This will be more interesting at next year's draft time, but we all know we basically "got back" the 3rd in this year's draft.

Right now, we should get a 3rd for KCousins leaving, and Minnesota also should get a 3rd for Case Keenum leaving plus a 6th for Teddy Bridgewater. I think that has a bit of irony wrapped up in it.
