Kaepernick and Dalton aren't in the same universe in terms of overall value. Kaepernick's upside is off the charts. The touchdown pass he threw to Anquan Boldin in the NFC Championship game is a play I don't know that any other QB in football can make. Kaepernick is still ascending. Dalton has plateaued. I would have no problem giving Kaepernick his $18M per season. I swear, its been so long since the Titans have had a good QB that everyone around here is forgetting what a good QB actually looks like. It doesn't look like Andy Dalton.
