Report: Washington Football Team parting ways with Alex Smith

The Washington Football Team reportedly is planning to part ways with quarterback Alex Smith.

The AP Comeback Player of the Year last season, Smith still wants to play in the NFL.

Washington signed quarterback Taylor Heinicke, who started its lone playoff game last season, to a contract extension earlier this offseason.

That left Smith as the odd man out in Washington’s quarterback room, as the team already has Kyle Allen under contract as well.

Last season, Smith returned from a brutal leg injury to play in his first games since the 2018 season.

He started six games for Washington, leading them to a 5-1 record in his starts.

Washington won the NFC East and made the playoffs, but Smith was unable to play in the playoff game due to injury.

The 36-year-old finished the 2020 season with 1,582 passing yards, six passing touchdowns and eight interceptions.
