The Washington Football Team is set to part ways with Alex Smith, and these five teams make sense as landing spots for the veteran signal caller.
Earlier, we thought he may have announced his three free agency finalists via a Peloton bio, but now it seems that none of that matters. The star quickly shut that rumor down.
Smith’s career doesn’t have to end here by any stretch of the imagination with several NFL teams in need of someone under center. Where could the veteran end up?Houston Texans
The Cowboys will have a new mastermind of their defense in 2021 in Dan Quinn. During his days with the Seattle Seahawks, he was the architect of the infamous “Legion of Boom” defense which dominated the NFL with consecutive top-ranked units in 2013 and 2014 and was the spearhead for back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, winning one title.Seattle Seahawks

• A Monday night wild-card game? I think it’s somewhere between 50-50 and very likely. Last year, the NFL wouldn’t consider playing one of six wild-card games on Monday night because it would have conflicted with the Jan. 11 college football national title game. The NFL instead played three wild-card games on Saturday and three Sunday in the 2020 season. This season, college football will play the championship game in Indianapolis on Monday night, Jan. 10, 2022. That leaves Jan. 17 as the football-free Monday night of Wild Card Weekend. So the NFL could play two games on Saturday, three on Sunday, and one on Monday. Screaming, of course, will commence about the Monday night winner playing a short-week game the following Sunday. (And the NFL would ensure that the Monday night winner would not play until Sunday of divisional weekend.) Balderdash. With three wild-card games on Saturday, six teams are sure to play a short-week game. With two wild-card games on Saturday and one on Monday, five teams are assured of a short-week game—four on Saturday and Monday’s winner, which would play the following Sunday. If I’m a coach, I’m happy after playing 17 games in 18 weeks to have an extra day of rest before a playoff game. What’s the argument against it?Miami Dolphins
Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David is on the team’s radar as an upgrade to their defense. David had 117 tackles, 1.5 sacks, an interception, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries for the Bucs during the 2020 season.
