Geno Smith Net Worth: How Much Has The Seahawks QB Earned In The NFL?

Geno Smith is a 32-year-old American football quarterback for the National Football League’s Seattle Seahawks. He played college football for West Virginia, leading the Mountaineers to multiple bowl games, breaking numerous passing records, and earning numerous accolades before being selected by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Smith participated in his first NFL preseason game against the Detroit Lions on August 9, 2013. He completed 6 of 7 passes for 47 yards before being forced to leave the game in the second quarter due to an ankle injury. Smith spent his final two years with the Jets as the team’s starting quarterback after two inconsistent seasons, but injuries ultimately cost him the job.

He later served as a backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, and Los Angeles Chargers before unexpectedly reviving his career in 2022 as the team’s starter, making his first Pro Bowl appearance, posting his first winning record, and making the playoffs as a starter, and finishing first in the league in completion percentage.

Geno Smith Net worth

The Seahawks star is expected to make a lot of money; his estimated net worth is $5 million.

Geno Smith signed a one-year, 3,500,000-dollar contract with the Seattle Seahawks that paid him an average annual salary of $3,500,000 as well as a 500,000-dollar signing bonus and 500,000 in guaranteed money.

Smith will receive 1,260,000 in base pay, 500,000 in signing bonuses, 1,690,000 in roster bonuses, and 50,000 in workout bonuses in 2022 as part of his compensation. He will also have a $3,500,000 cap hit and a $550,000 dead cap value.

Geno Smith has kept a low profile and rarely takes part in endorsements even after ten years in the NFL. Despite the fact that he generally avoids the spotlight, his wealth has significantly increased.

Smith’s contract is up in 2023, the following year, when he will be a free agent. Many have drawn the conclusion that the Seahawks might decide to franchise or transition tag Smith before his free agency based on this.

The transition tag is expected to pay a quarterback just over $28 million, while the franchise tag is expected to pay a quarterback about $31.4 million in 2023.
