Chiefs agree to trade QB Smith to Redskins

Former Chiefs QB Alex Smith

The Kansas City Star first reported the deal.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Redskins agreed to a four-year extension with Smith worth $23.5 million per season, including $70 million in guarantees. Like appears to be the case for Alex Smith, in the film Mr. Smith heads to D.C.in hopes of cleaning up the corruption riddled throughout the capital.

In exchange for the quarterback, the Chiefs will receive a third-round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller from the Redskins according to multiple reports.

Nonetheless, Cousins, now on the free agent market and could be franchise tagged by Washington for the third straight year, told Gary & Larry on Tuesday afternoon that he hopes for the best for the 49ers and Garoppolo's future. Perhaps they could use one of their midround picks on a quarterback, like when the Redskins used a fourth-round selection on Cousins in 2012.

According to Spotrac, Cousins will likely be looking for a contract length of around five years and a value of nearly $25 million per year.

Before any resolution to Eric Wood's likely retirement or any decision about Tyrod Taylor, the Bills are expected to have about $30 million in 2018 cap space.

Kirk Cousins finally will get paid. Dorsey traded for Smith when he became G.M. of the Chiefs in 2013.

Smith was on borrowed time with the Chiefs ever since they traded up for Patrick Mahomes II in last year's NFL Draft. Smith has a cap number of $20.6 million for 2018, and the Chiefs will save $17 million. In his one game of action, which came in the last game of this past season - his rookie year - Mahomes displayed some solid progression. That he's also a capable runner, having scored 22 rushing touchdowns combined in his final two college seasons, only helps his cause.

But Smith was only 1-4 with the Chiefs in the playoffs and couldn't guide them past the divisional round. That signaled the beginning of the end of Smith's time with the Chiefs.

Smith is coming off the best season of his career.

The 33-year-old has appeared in 156 games over his 12-year National Football League career and has thrown 183 touchdowns and 96 interceptions for a career 87.4 rating.

Smith spent the first eight seasons of his career with the 49ers.

Right then, back to the Super Bowl.
