During the offseason the Washington Redskins made a huge commitment to make Alex Smith their QB.
Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith signed a four-year, $94 million extension with the team , reports NFL.com.
Smith will make $40 million this upcoming season, which includes a $27 million signing bonus, according to the report.
The deal also includes $71 million in guarantees for injury, meaning Smith is under contract for five years and $111 million.
