RICHMOND, Va. — Redskins fans got their first glimpse of new quarterback Alex Smith Thursday morning in the first practice of training camp. The team won’t put pads on until Saturday, but you could already see flashes of what Smith will be able to do with this offense once completely in sync.
“It’s nice to get the first one under our belt,” Smith said. “I love that we just came out and started firing right away.
Smith has to continue to develop chemistry with his new receivers and backs, something that could prove difficult seeing as most of them were injured a year ago and slowly working their way back on the field. Tight end Jordan Reed was the most notable pass-catching option who didn’t partake in team drills Thursday morning.
