Good point. I was thinking about this. He has no guaranteed money owed so if we do give him his option then we can trade him with no cap hit and still save the money on the cap.
Jacksonville, NY, Arizona, Kansas City and Cleveland will all be looking for QB's this year. I dont think any of them will be enamored with the rookies available.
Smith could be the best option available. Flacco is a free agent but there is no way Baltimore lets him go. Unless teams fall in love with the likes of Tavaris Jackson, Matt Moore and Jason Campbell.
KC looks like a good fit for Geno Smith. Matt Barkley and Tyler Wilson are not starters.
This could be a good year to offer up Smith to one of those other AFC teams for a few picks.
We could also restructure his contract and keep as a good back up. He doesn't want to leave and he will end up as a back up some where anyways, why not here since Kap and Smith are friends. It is similar to what the Bills did in their championship days with Jim Kelly and Frank Reich and Reich took them to a super bowl lose by a field goal. Like I said it seems like Smith is happy being here and he knew this day was coming.
