In addition to trading a draft pick and player for Alex Smith, the Redskins are also set to give him a massive contract extension worth north of $23 million a year, including $70 million in guarantees:

On the agreement in principle. Alex Smith will average $23.5 million per year in new money on the extension and $70 million in guarantees. Nobody will be able to review that contract for awhile because officially there is no contract.
