The Detroit Lions got their butts kicked by the Tampa Bays Bucs on Saturday afternoon and Chase Daniel became a topic of conversation during the garbage time portion of the game.

Early in the first quarter, Daniel entered the game to replace injured Lions starting QB Matthew Stafford.

Not only were fans shocked that Daniel was still in the league, but they were surprised to learn that he had somehow made nearly $40 million during his career despite not getting much playing time.

Being a career backup QB seems like a solid gig.
