Quarterback Alex Smith’s time in Washington has reportedly come to an end.
According to Ian Rapoport and Kim Jones, the team and Smith are expected to go their separate ways at some point in the coming days. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
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.

Smith started several games this season in his first action since his horrible 2018 injury, but it apparently wasn’t enough to secure him the starting job going forward.

If I had to guess, I’d guess that Smith will find a new team to latch onto once he’s out of Washington.
The quarterback market in the NFL is an absolute joke. Anyone who can walk and talk at the same time can find a job.
He can do more than that, and looked incredibly competent in his first action since getting hurt. It’s clear that he has gas left in the tank.

No matter what happens next with Smith, he has nothing left to prove. Whether he plays one more snap or never plays again, he’s an inspiration to everyone who loves sports.
