    Backup QB Salaries

    So, everyone here is upset about Feeley, for the most part. I found a list, albeit a few years old, of backups and their salaries. For the most part, the ones with high salaries were being groomed to be the starter or were considered the starter at one point or another. But seriously. AJ Feeley. He made about 3 mill when he was considered a "catch", as this list shows.

    Re: Backup QB Salaries

    The more I look at this, the only thing that makes sense is that the Rams plan on starting AJ Feeley this year. Every guy making 2-3 million is either a really reliable backup (batch, collins, johnson, volek, redman) or has been a starter.

    AJ Feeley is going to be starting. Ugh.

    Salaries from a few years ago don't mean a whole lot, especially when we're talking about an uncapped year. That being said, the Rams probably consider Feeley to be a reliable back-up who could start in a pinch if need be, especially in this system. So paying him like other guys who fit that category wouldn't be an issue for them.

    I'd also invite you to consider what back-ups Chad Pennington ($2.5 million for one year w/ escalator if he's traded) and Chris Redman ($2.8 million for two years) just resigned for. Feeley's $3 million average over two years is not horrible at all when you consider those two contracts, especially if you think he may have to start a few games until a rookie is able to take over.
