Alex Smith Will Reportedly Be Traded to Washington!

AFC quarterback Alex Smith, of the Kansas City Chiefs looks to pass during the first half of the NFL Pro Bowl football game against the NFC Sunday Jan. 28 2018 in Orlando Fla

"From what I've heard, it's a tough market, man, if I'm making it about the media, I've got bigger problems", Cousins said. Last week, MMQB.com's Peter King even went as far as to guess Smith would ultimately become a Brown.

The move marked the first time the Chiefs selected a quarterback in the first round since taking Penn State's Todd Blackledge in 1983. Kansas City traded its first- and third-round picks in 2017, and a first-rounder in 2018, to be in position to use the 10 overall pick last April to pick quarterback Pat Mahomes.

Those failures were in large part why the Chiefs traded up previous year in the first round to draft quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, and why the Chiefs on Tuesday sent Smith to Washington in return for a third-round pick plus Redskins cornerback Kendall Fuller as compensation, sources told ESPN. Cousins has played for both McVay and Shanahan and knows Bates would be a good fit for his skills. At 33 years old, Smith has shown no signs of decline, but he's on a contract that expires after next season.

Smith has one season remaining on his four-year, $68-million contract he signed with the Chiefs in 2015. I feel like we, offensively previous year, did some awesome things. Probably not. But we've seen it happen before (Donovan McNabb to the Redskins) and the Broncos should at least explore the option. Taking snaps in three games, Mahomes completed 63 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and no interceptions. The 49ers went on that season to the Super Bowl with Smith as a backup. "I think it was a smart hire by the Jets and I wish him well in what he does". That is a given since there they don't have one single QB who has won a game on their roster.
