Debating whether we can draft a QB when we may have the future FQB in Hack who has not played in a game.
I get the impression, based on his salary incentives, that mentoring is to be his primary role, but they could also be allowing for time missed because of injury or being benched for poor performance. He gets $125,000 for each game that he plays at least 50 percent of up to $2 million. He gets another $2 million if we make the playoffs and he played 65 percent of the time. He gets another $1.5 million if they make it to the Super Bowl, again playing 65 percent of the time. He makes $1.5 million if they win with the same playing requirement. I would seem to me that they are uncertain how much time he will spend under center.
