Pretty much everyone had some pretty low expectations of Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks entering last season, but they blew those expectations out of the water and made the playoffs, and Smith was a huge part of that. He delivered his best season as a pro, and it didn't happen until his ninth season in the NFL.

While Smith's numbers were the best of his career, his most impressive stat didn't involve any passing or rushing, or even winning categories, it was his durability. Only 21 offensive players were on the field for every single offensive snap of their team's season.

20 of them were offensive lineman, the other? Geno Smith.

Smith's durability is not only rare, its Ironman-like and given his company in the feat, its clear how rare it is for someone to do that at the quarterback position in today's NFL.

Smith is a free agent this offseason, and despite Seattle being armed with the No. 5 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, it seems as though both sides are interested in a reunion.
