Chiefs Trade Alex Smith to Washington
Details of the trade have not been announced.
If that ends up being what happens, then, you get Gruden, in year five, starting over with a new quarterback, either a draft pick or a free agent, ostensibly cheaper than Cousins, with the added pressure of having to develop whoever this new signal-caller is really quick, because, can Gruden survive another season without a playoff berth?
Alex Smith #11 of the Kansas City Chiefs calls out the play in the fourth quarter against the New York Giants on November 19, 2017 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The Redskins look like they'll be parting ways with their quarterback Kirk Cousins after franchise tagging his the last two seasons. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said the deal will be finalized Wednesday. The evidence of this has shown not only on the field but also in other teams picking from the heap of players the Redskins released during final preseason cuts.
Trades cannot be made until the National Football League year officially begins March 14, but that doesn't mean teams can't negotiate trade terms ahead of time. ESPN reported Tuesday evening that Smith had reached an agreement in principle with the team on a four-year contract extension worth an average of $23.5 million per year.
Speculation on Smith's future centers on the fact that he is in the a year ago of his contract and is due to make $17 million. The player is expected to be cornerback Kendall Fuller, a third-round pick in 2016 out of Virginia Tech. The 29-year-old has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in three straight seasons and will be the top free agent QB on the market outside Drew Brees.
Dorsey, as general manager of the Chiefs, traded with the 49ers to get Smith in 2013.
Meantime, the Chiefs are obviously taking a huge risk, but it's one they can get away with not only because of new starter Pat Mahomes' vast talent, but because they have Andy Reid to develop him in a proven QB incubator.
Smith is coming off the best season of his career. In fact, his first career touchdown came on a 20-yard pass from the veteran quarterback.
Kansas City was 1-4 in the playoffs with Smith, who had one year left on a four-year contract extension he signed in 2014. All things considered, as it stands right now, I'll take a shot in the dark and say that Mahomes will be a fantasy starter in 2018.
