Re: Alex Effect - 2019 Draft

There's no way Alex would forgo 41 Mil. This exact scenario is why that clause is even in the contract.

Re: Alex Effect - 2019 Draft

Doc Walker is saying there is a rumor that Smith had complications from his surgery.
They aren't saying what.

Alex is another SD guy and a class act. I wish him well.

Re: Alex Effect - 2019 Draft

Alex will be missed no matter what people say, yeah he didn't light it up for us but he was a stand up guy and a leader. This is a big blow to the organization if he can't come back, which it sounds like he won't. U hate to go right to football but now this team 100% needs to draft a QB and maybe even 2 again.

Re: Alex Effect - 2019 Draft

Partial reconstruction can include anything up to and including amputation. He needs things to go right for him. If you're the praying type I'd offer some up.

Zach Miller from Chicago had the same type of infection happen I believe, and they thought he would lose his leg. Luckily he is better now but obv. he can't play on it.

Reports of @Redskins Alex Smith dealing w infection of ankle.can be very serious. Effecting bone healing & soft tissue. IV antibiotics, multiple surgical clean outs, Hardware exchanges, all considerations in infection. In the worst of scenarios, some have had amputations.

Re: Alex Effect - 2019 Draft

It’s funny I was just thinking this week we should be due for some sort of update on Alex and now word of an infection. Not uncommon with that type of injury but still, wish him the best

Re: Alex Effect - 2019 Draft

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...esperate-teams

Coach Jay Gruden and team president Bruce Allen never expected to be in this position after signing Alex Smith to a four-year contract extension last March with $55 million guaranteed. There's no telling how Smith will recover from the compound leg fracture he suffered last month -- Thursday brought the troubling news that he's battling an infection related to his leg surgery -- but, unfortunately, the specifics of Smith's contract could force Washington to make an early decision about his future. Even though the Redskins owe $15 million guaranteed to Smith next season, they could decide to cut him before the fifth day of the new league year in 2019 to avoid guaranteeing his 2020 salary.


This is the brutal calculus of NFL injuries. Even in a best-case scenario for Smith's recovery, the Redskins are overdue to draft a potential replacement. Gruden has never attempted to develop a highly drafted young quarterback in Washington. (This all assumes Gruden is around to coach the team for a sixth season, which he deserves considering the awful injury luck his team has had the last two years.) The Gruden family's style is to look for veterans, so perhaps the Redskins could be players in the Teddy Bridgewater or Tyrod Taylor market.


Yuck no thanks on Tyrod or Teddy but I guess we may have no choice

...
I don't think that story is accurate. The contract has injury guarantees for the 2020 season according to spotrac:

Quote:
Contract Notes:
$55M guaranteed at signing (signing bonus + 2018 salary + 2019 salary)
2020 salary fully guarantees on the 5th league day of 2019, currently guaranteed for injury
If AS' career is at an end, we are on the hook for about 42 million over the next 2 years. or a mid tier qb's pay. We will be looking at 2 rookies, and likely neither will be a projected starter, because with Skins curse we will win 3 of the next 4, back in to the playoffs and pick 22nd...
