38. Alex Smith
It’s insane but Smith still has one of the highest quarterback salaries out there. The Washington Football team QB suffered a gruesome leg break in 2018 but things got much worse. Doctors said that he might die if they didn’t remove his leg, however, he came through this. But the point remains that his contract is massive. Smith signed a $94 million, four-year extension in 2018 after he departed Kansas City.
However, this wasn’t great value for money because of his injury record. Yes, it wasn’t his fault. But that won’t please Dan Snyder and his accountants. Even though Smith is no longer a guaranteed starter, he still enjoys a massive guaranteed $16 million per year. Nobody can begrudge him that because he almost died, but it is still an insane amount of money considering his output.
