“I had so much fun this year, to be back in the locker room and on the field to play a game I love and to lose yourself in it is one of the great feelings in the world. My wife has been through a lot, my family has been through a lot but that’s for another time and place,” Smith told the media when talking about his future.

As I’ve said many times before, the fact played in the NFL again after his gruesome knee injury is already a major victory.
When he went down in 2018, I think most people assumed that he’d never play again.

He came back from his knee injury, started several games this season for Washington and will forever be remembered as one of the greatest comeback stories in the history of sports.
“No matter the outcome, Alex has already won.”

Whether or not Smith ever throws a pass again in an NFL game, he’s already cemented his place in history.
