Will Smith, who has starred in such films as “Ali” and “The Pursuit of Happyness,” is reportedly interested in playing for the NFL. According to a report from TMZ, the 46-year-old actor has been training with former NFL quarterbacking greats like Jeff Garcia and Jake Delhomme.
Sources say that Smith is serious about making a return to football and has even been in contact with NFL teams about potentially signing a contract. Smith famously played the role of Muhammad Ali in the 2001 biopic “Ali” and also starred as a former NFL player in the 2006 film “The Pursuit of Happyness.” It remains to be seen if any NFL team will take a chance on the veteran actor, but it would certainly be an interesting story if Smith were to make a return to the gridiron.
