Chris Smith only played eight games for the Raiders (2020) but made an impression. Great dude who overcome adversity and had a very positive spirit. He was 31. RIP. https://t.co/5WrTxAjh1N

Being named Second-Team All-SEC in 2013 with the Arkansas Razorbacks, Smith was drafted by the Jaguars in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Earlier this year, Smith played in four XFL games with the Seattle Sea Dragons, tallying five tackles with the team.
Smith’s girlfriend and the mother of one of his three children, Petara Cordero, died in 2019 when she was struck by a vehicle as she was getting out of her vehicle.
Notice the ones who “died suddenly/young” even if they’re extremely healthy never have a cause of death/vaccine status?
The cover-up after a couple of years is getting old and unnecessary.
What was…. From the Clot Shot for $500 Alex??
Everybody makes anyone who dies a messiah in their eulogy speeches especially when fake news media is present, my question is did he kneel for the national anthem and when they displayed the American flag that’s all I need to know to tell a person’s moral character, good people don’t need fake news propaganda or brainwashing we judge by what we see in the actions of that person
Way to go Joe O’Biden, Fauci, and George Goodall. You killed this person and so many others.
