There is a possibility that the San Francisco 49ers will release or trade quarterback Alex Smith in the 2013 offseason, and many feel like the Jacksonville Jaguars should and will be interested. The big question with Smith however is, how much of an upgrade is he really over what the Jaguars have currently on their roster.

Smith was having a nice season in 2013, finishing the year completing 70.2 percent of his passes and throwing for 13 touchdowns with just 5 interceptions and a rating of 104.1. Those numbers don't really tell the whole story, and as I've said for a while; Quarterback rating is a bad statistic, it lies to you.

Now, this isn't to say that Alex Smith is a bad player because he's not, but more so to ask how much of an upgrade will he really be for the Jaguars?
