Alex Smith is celebrating his 36th birthday today and his hopes of an NFL comeback were not just for show in the recent E:60 profile, Project 11. This morning Alex’s wife, Elizabeth, took to Instagram to wish him a happy birthday. She also talked about his strength and perseverance through this all as well as sharing a video of Alex still training in hopes of that NFL comeback. The Project 11 piece gave us all an inside look into a man we did not know going through a struggle we could not comprehend or fathom. We all want to wish Alex not just a happy birthday, but a happy and healthy life moving forward, whatever that life may look like, NFL comeback or not.
