Alex Smith Cut (update: retired)

The Washington Football Team is expected to part ways with QB Alex Smith in the coming days, sources tell me and
@KimJonesSports
. The AP Comeback Player of the Year has said he still wants to play, and at age 36 may have a chance to do so.

Rap Sheet

Should save 15M

A tough son of a gun, a leader, a consummate pro, and above all else ... a winner.

Good luck with whatever you wind up doing Alex!

Re: Alex Smith Cut

Loved the ride, wish him 1) another opportunity since that's what he wants 2) to be smart enough to retire before having another injury

Nice and smart cap move on our part.

Re: Alex Smith Cut

Right move opens some bucks. I think Alex has a future in coaching/management some where.

Agree. The comeback and wins that gave us a glimpse of what could have been was amazing. Good luck with whatever the future holds.

Re: Alex Smith Cut

You know, I get tired of hearing "yeah, but he's never won a SB", or he's just a "Captain check down", etc. You know who else never won a SB? D Marino, J Kelly, W Moon, D Fouts, P Rivers, and plenty of other good/great QBs... Guess who also is (or was) shown to "check down" at about the same percentage or more: D Carr, D Watson, E Manning, P Rivers, and plenty of other good/great QBs...

He's a great player who just manages to win games, and never ever got the credit he deserved.

The last two years exemplify what type of person he truly is. Best of luck in whatever he chooses the next chapter to be.

Exactly this. His play was not "exciting", but he knew how to lead and generally win. I hope he has a great future, whether in football or not.

Re: Alex Smith Cut

11-4 as the starter here. Say what you will about his style of play, but he found a way to win more often than not. Has any QB in Snyder's tenure left here with a winning record?
