Chiefs agree to trade Alex Smith to Redskins

Jaguars keeping Blake Bortles may impact Broncos offseason

Many believed Alex Smith could be Arizona's primary target as a trade option, but with the deal sending him from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Washington Redskins, that option is now unavailable.

The Redskins would give Kansas City a third-round pick and Redskins cornerback Kendall Fuller as compensation, sources told ESPN. Specifically, it ramps up the stakes for Kirk Cousins in free agency. Teams can begin negotiating with other teams' free agents on March 12, and sign them on March 14th.

For the Chiefs, this means the start of the Patrick Mahomes era. Paylor did not have details on what the Chiefs would get in return, though NFL.com's Ian Rapoport indicated what the likely return would be.

But the writing was on the wall earlier in the day. During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Smith was at a loss for words when asked where he'll be playing next season...

"I love where I'm at", Smith said. "[A record of] 1-31 over the last two years just sounds awesome". John Elway is reportedly dead set on chasing Cousins, but Smith could be the better option - at least for the current roster, which is on its last legs. I feel like we underachieved. Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Denver Broncos to name a few. By trading him, the Chiefs will reap a $17 million savings and hand the keys to Patrick Mahomes as their new starting quarterback.

Hopefully, for Redskins fans, Alex Smith isn't Donovan McNabb.

Keenum signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Vikings last spring to serve as Bradford's backup.

Although Smith said he wishes he could be in control of his 2018 destiny, he hopes he'll be staying in Kansas City.

Meanwhile, the Redskins get a proven quarterback who is coming off the best seasons of his career.
