ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Doug Williams looked at Alex Smith and slightly exaggerated the commitment the Washington Redskins made to their new soon-to-be 34-year-old quarterback.
"He can play to 40," Williams said Thursday. "Can you, Alex? Look at him. I think he can."
Smith smiled back and has plenty to be happy about. The veteran is now the Redskins' franchise quarterback after being acquired from the Kansas City Chiefs and signing a $94 million, four-year extension with $71 million guaranteed that keeps him under contract through 2022.
