Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

I wasn't counting on Foster this year, or ever.


Shame, he could be a big contributor on D, he has/had talent.

If healthy Smith in mix at QB.

Is Alex considered high risk do to fighting a serious infection and almost losing his leg?

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Alex Smith’s comeback is a great story, but I would be just amazed if he ever sees the field again. The guy almost died from this injury and is over 35 years old. I think Dan Snyder needs a friend a lot more than the WFT needs an old QB.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Alex Smith should do himself a favor and retire. I am not saying this to be mean or that he isn't a good qb. I am just thinking from a health point of view. If he took a low shot to that leg again I don't know how well it would hold him. The risk is too great - but that is his choice to make...

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

I heard JP make a good point today...what have the Skins done since the AS injury? Invested a no 1 pick in Haskins as well as a 5 th round pick at QB. He’s right.

Both calculated moves...both young guys who have shown serious flashes to build upon.

The org is stalling if AS plays...he was borderline terrible when he was healthy. AS, get off the field

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

I can't imagine the team would want to take on the responsibility of putting him on the field again. Think about what a disaster it would be if he got seriously hurt again. If he's serious about playing again it can't be here. Trade him if need be.

Exactly. If he played and got hurt “the redskins being the redskins again...they put Haskins in danger play him too early last year and now they played a QB who damn near lost his leg”.....this is not the right spot of AS if he wants to continue his playing career. He’s a strong back up somewhere else

So in strict financial terms, it's a WIN-WIN for both sides if he just stays on the roster until the end of his contract. He gets paid, the team doesn't get screwed on the cap hit.

Yeah sorry but the AS era needs to be over in WSH. Haskins or bust

Really, that doesn't seem right, OTC has 0 cap hit if we cut him now

Post 6/1 release
2020 Dead Cap: $21,400,000
2021 Dead Cap: $10,800,000
2020 Cap Savings: $0

https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/washingt...ex-smith-3337/

If he can't pass a physical and was cut we'd get something like a $12m cap credit due to that insurance policy

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

OTC has a slightly different bonus proration structure, but in any case it would be a post June 1 release which has less impact on this years cap, always thought OTC was a good resource.......

Apologies just reread your post and the numbers appear to be about the same, what I meant was 0 additional cap hit if we cut him now
