Career Highlights: Named the 2020 NFL Comeback Player of the Year, quarterback Alex Smith retired in the 2021 off-season after he came back from a near life-threatening leg injury to lead the Washington Football team midway through the 2020 season to an NFC East title. Last season, Smith worked as an ESPN analyst. A 16-year veteran, Smith was traded to Washington in 2018 after leading Kansas City for five seasons. A three-time Pro Bowler, Smith posted three 11-win seasons with the Chiefs and in 2017 posted career-highs in completions, yards and led the NFL in passer rating. In 2015, he led the Chiefs to an 11-game winning streak, their first playoff win since 1994, and was named the Chiefs co-MVP. Prior to the Chiefs, Smith spent seven years with the San Francisco 49ers. He started the first nine games of the 2012 season, before suffering a head injury, as the team finished with an 11-4-1 record and played in Super Bowl XLVII. Smith had a breakout season in 2011 leading the 49ers to a 13-3 record. He threw 17 touchdowns and just five interceptions, setting the 49ers record for fewest interceptions in a season.
