Washington football quarterback Alex Smith will take a few weeks to think about his future in the NFL.
That’s what the 36-year-old veteran told ESPN on Sunday.
In 2020, Smith made the comeback of the year in the Goodell circuit, he who was able to regain his starting spot.
This is practically a miracle, when you consider that the pivot has passed 17 times under the knife since November 2018.
At the time, he had suffered a terrifying leg injury. He almost lost his limb during his long rehabilitation process.
“I had so much fun this year, being back in the locker room and on the pitch playing the sport I love and getting lost in it is one of the beautiful feelings in the world,” said Smith.
Despite this, Smith wants to take his time before choosing there will continue his career.
Smith’s season officially ended on Saturday when his team lost a playoff game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The quarterback, however, was not of the training of his, since he is injured in a calf.
“That’s not the way I wanted to end my campaign,” Smith said, adding that he would have played despite the pain if this situation had arisen before he suffered his horrific leg injury.
This season, Smith completed 66.7% of the throws he attempted for 1,582 yards and six touchdowns in eight games. He was also the victim of eight interceptions.
Even if he decides to play another campaign, Washington will still have to want him. Smith has two years left on his contract and his deal represents $ 24.4 million on his club’s payroll.
