Being a quality backup quarterback in the NFL is easy money.

But despite just starting his fourth career game, which accumulated a combined 78 pass attempts, Daniel has made himself a lot of money in the NFL.
A lot as in $28 million.
Reportedly set to start Thursday for the #Bears, QB Chase Daniel has earned $28M across 10 #NFL seasons through which he’s thrown 78 passes, including 1 TD, & 1 INT. He’s guaranteed at least another $3M in 2019. https://t.co/ZKdLSvNUyo pic.twitter.com/Im4DBLUomH

For those doing the math at home, Daniel has made $358,974 per pass attempt in his career.
If that’s not living the American dream, I don’t know what is..
