Come on, man, it's human to feel bad for ANYONE whose leg is snapped like that, especially if it threatens his career.

True.
However there is another point: Alex has made enough money in his career where he does not have to play anymore if he feels like his health as he get older is more important than a game. I am certain he will rehab like crazy and make every effort to play again. Nobody wants to go out like this. However Alex was drafted very high and he has more than enough money to retire if he decides next year it ainít worth it anymore.

This can be life altering. Kiss goodbye running a marathon or skiing with the family or hell even simple things like going up and down stairs can be debilitating. After something like that I hope he can get full mobility back without pain.

Re: Offence and Alex Smith

I donít how this affects the salary cap, heís due $13 mil this year, $15 mil on 2019 starting January 5th. Then what if he retires?

I'd like to know the same thing. What if he's forced into retirement due to injury? What does that mean for the team in terms of the money? At least one thing we can take solace in, if the 'skins found a great QB in the draft, they have a lot of players playing on rookie contracts. It might be that by the time they have to offer "real" contracts to the likes of Allen, Guice, or Payne, any effect from the Alex Smith deal would be null.

Call me crazy, but I believe the 'skins have a lot of pieces in place.

The way the contract is structured makes it a huge cap hit till after 2020. We are basically married to the guy for three years. If he retires? IDK how that works.

Re: Offence and Alex Smith

Although the teddy Bridgewater injury was really bad, he sat out the next year. Could it be same for Smith? Smith was also just as bad but different.

While both injuries are gruesome, you're still talking about two totally different injuries, and two players who were about tens years apart in age. Trust me, age is a factor when it comes to healing from injury.

I know that, basically what Iím saying could this be a retirement factor? Teddy was 23, Alex is 34.

Overthecap has this blurb

Alex Smith was traded to the Redskins on March 14, 2018. Smith signed a four year contract extension with the Redskins on March 16, 2018 worth $94 million in new money. Per Albert Breer, Smith*will receive a $27 million signing bonus*and $55 million is guaranteed at signing. If on the roster on the 5th day of the 2019 league year, Smith's 2020 $16 million salary will also become fully guaranteed.

And if he is designated post jun 1 then the numbers look like this

2019 hit
Hit $20,400,000
Cap savings $0

2020
Hit $5,400,000
Cap savings $16,000,000

Not awful really
