The Washington Football Team has released Comeback Player of the Year and quarterback Alex Smith.
Alex Smith, the Comeback Player of the Year, will not be coming back to Washington. The team officially released him today, making him a free agent and saving the WFT $14.9 million against the cap.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 5, 2021
Smith went 5-1 as a starter for Washington, tossing 1,582 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. While a little surprising, the move for Washington makes sense as it tries to find its quarterback of the future.
