Potential Landing Spots for Alex Smith

Jacksonville Jaguars

To be honest, the Jaguars may be just a quarterback away from being a very good team. With a new and old head coach in Doug Marrone, and a new powerhouse running back in Leonard Fournette, the Jaguars are finding all the pieces to the puzzle. The only problem is that Blake Bortles continues to underwhelm and underperform and the team is relying on him to take the next step.

Alex Smith may be the answer the Jaguars are looking for. With a pretty much complete team, Jacksonville is just one step away from becoming a contender. The glaring problem that Smith addresses with almost all of these teams is consistent quarterback play, and the Jaguars are no exception.

The biggest problem Bortles has is turning the ball over with errant passes. Of course that is what Alex Smith excels at. While there is no true quarterback controversy in Jacksonville, there is definitely a help wanted sign hanging outside the stadium for a new quarterback. With the kind of experience Alex Smith has, he would be the perfect candidate for the job.

Bortles may be the Jaguars current short term solution, but he is not going to bring Jacksonville back to contending form. That job may be awaiting Alex Smith following Patrick Mahomes, which if Smith cannot improve on his past playoff disappointments, he may hit the market sooner than later.
