    Alex Smith to Chiefs

    ESPN is reporting that they have reached a deal (which can't be formally made until 3/12). Terms not disclosed.

    Chiefs to get Alex Smith, cut Cassel
    ESPN.com news services

    The San Francisco ***** have agreed to trade quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com's John Clayton.


    Kansas City will trade its second-round pick in the 2013 draft -- the second selection (No. 34 overall) in the round -- as well as another conditional mid-round pick in 2014 to acquire Smith from San Francisco, a league source told ESPN.
    As a result of the trade, the Chiefs are expected to release former starting quarterback Matt Cassel, league sources told ESPN. Cassel has two years remaining on a $63 million, six-year deal he signed with Kansas City after he was acquired in a trade from the Patriots in 2009. He failed to live up to the lofty contract, however, and was benched during the 2012 season.
    At this point, Smith will play under terms of his remaining contract, which calls for a guaranteed base salary of $8.5 million in 2013. There has been no discussions between the Chiefs and Smith's representatives about negotiating a new contract.
    The trade can't be officially completed until March 12 when the 2013 league year begins.

    The trade agreement was first reported by Fox Sports.
    Smith, the 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick, lost his starting job to Colin Kaepernick while sitting out with a concussion but was professional at every turn and continued to mentor his replacement.
    Before his injury, Smith had completed 26 of his last 28 passes -- including going 18-of-19 for 232 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a "Monday Night Football" win at Arizona on Oct. 29.
    He then sustained a concussion in the second quarter of the *****' next game, a 24-24 tie against St. Louis on Nov. 11. Smith sat out the next game as Kaepernick dazzled in his debut as an NFL starter, beating the Bears handily at home on "Monday Night Football." Smith didn't start again last season.
    The 28-year-old quarterback has thrown for 14,280 yards with 81 touchdowns and 63 interceptions in 80 career games.
    The Chiefs hired coach Andy Reid as their new coach this offseason after a 2-14 season that earned Kansas City the No. 1 overall pick but led to the dismissals of coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli.
    That's good compensation for the Niners. Of course, they'd better hope that Kaepernick stays healthy, as I don't see Scott Tolzien (and, yes, I had to look up who their #3 QB was) leading them to the Super Bowl.

    I think this will work out well for the Chiefs. Smith should be pretty solid in Andy Reid's offense. The whiners probably had a better offensive line though.

    I'm not real crazy about San Fransisco netting a high 2nd round pick out of this. Although, given the draft they put together last year, maybe I shouldn't be too worried about it.

    Re: Alex Smith to Chiefs

    And for those curious, the whiners #31 and #34 would cost us #16 and a 4th OR #22 and our 2nd rounder....approximately.

    ...or this.


    Poor fella won't be able to go shopping until after the draft. Sandals and shorts? Or boots and parka?

    Re: Alex Smith to Chiefs

    I feel like the Rams are responsible for for this trade because they were the team that injured Alex Smith and opened the door for Kaepernick to almost win a Superbowl and make me nervous about the NFC West for the next 10 years. Because of this I feel that it is only fair for the ***** to hand over one or all of those picks to the Rams.
