I've never even heard of Foot Drop until reading that. Poor guy, I hope he can have a solid quality of life in retirement.

I have heard of it, but I really did not know what it was. Seriously, they should rename the Comeback Player of the Year Award, the Alex Smith Award. The dude's a beast.

1st team mentioned for next season, Bears. He could reunite with his old coach Matt Nagy when both were in KC. Not sure of the contract he's looking for or if the Bears are interested.

It's official...

The Washington Football Team has officially released Alex Smith, source confirmed. He's now a free agent for the first time in his career and the team saves close to $15M in cap space.

I heard the Patriots or Denver appear to be two landing points for Smith.

 

Lots of "stuff" out there, we shall see.

Perfect one year deal. Don’t overpay and don’t reach for the next mediocre qb in the draft when everyone is qb fishing.

Yep, this about sums it up...

 

So lemme get this straight… The NFL is WAIVING its max debt limit, so one of the WORST owners in history can get MORE power, amid a PENDING investigation into personal and organizational misconduct? That's what's happening here, in real life?

I’ve been holding out hope all day that it wasn’t as easy to force him to sell the team with the minority guys (who already wanted out) and now that it’ll be all him they can enforce things along those lines.

But I’m sure I’m just being too optimistic.

There is no question that Danny sucks.

 

But, there are some other bad owners in history, Al Davis, Bidwell, Jerry Jones, Bob Irsay Sr., and I am sure I missed one or two.

 

Is he worse than any of those? Not sure I can say that he is.

Still hope here. NFL commented and said this and the investigation and completely unrelated and have no bearing on each other, and the rumor from people claiming to have seen a couple pages of the investigation claim the suggestion is to force him to sell.

It was mentioned before that the minority guys wanted him to sell so they’d get market value for their share, cause he didn’t have enough to buy them out at market price, that waiver would allow him to do that, and then repay it when he sells at full value later.

Just a theory but pieces would add up.

Jerry Jones is a great owner, but a horrible GM.  Then again I guess you need to hold him accountable for not firing his GM.

I have many cowboy fans, not a single one will acknowledge that he is a great owner. Most are praying for the day, somebody else owns the team.

 

You know he was sued by his stadium workers, for the organization keeping tip money when people paid by credit cards?

 

He puts his family is charge of departments, so he can micromanage them.
