Chiefs Agree To Trade QB Alex Smith To Redskins

How do you feel about the Washington Redskins trading for Alex Smith? The team used the franchise tag on Cousins each of the past two offseasons and could have done so again, although it would come at a hefty price tag of $34m this time around.

"They've got nowhere to go but up", Smith said Tuesday in an interview on the Dan Patrick Show.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (15) calls a play against the Denver Broncos during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, in Denver. "I feel that [way]". It's unfair to call Smith perennially disappointing in Kansas City, but the only way he could have saved his future in Missouri was with a strong 2017 season. I've been playing long enough.

Rapaport also reports that the trade comes along with a contract extension for four years, $94 million for Smith. I feel like we, offensively past year, did some awesome things.

"This is a insane business, a lot of insane stuff can happen", Smith said.

Just before Smith made the pass, Perloff took a jab at his throwing power. This year in Kansas City, the former Utah star had career-best in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7). The 49ers went on that season to the Super Bowl with Smith as a backup.
