Kansas City Chiefs Will Trade 2nd Round Pick For Alex Smith

The Kansas City Chiefs have “officially” made a trade for San Francsico 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. The Chiefs are giving up a 2nd round pick this year and a 2nd round pick next season in order to obtain Smith, per Tim Kawakami. The trade won’t be officially official until March.

That is a lot of loot in order to get a quarterback that needs to be schemed around. I am all for this trade!!!

Wouldn’t the Philadelphia Eagles give up Nick Foles for that price tag? The Washington Redskins give up Kirk Cousins for that loot? There has to be better potential out there for the Kansas City Chiefs, but they chose to go with Alex Smith. They could have even drafted a better quarterback with that 2nd round pick!

Thank you Kansas City for throwing draft picks away. Keep doing your thing!

    Well, he’ll be better than Cassel probably. Certainly not two second round picks good, though.

    Every Chiefs fan I know is furious with how much they gave up for a “game managing” QB.

    Thank you Andy Reid!

      I read one second rounder, and mid rounder in 2014, I centainly hope its 2 2nd rounders, but it sounds like less.

      • lblocz

        i thinks its a 2nd , and a 3rd but depending on performance could become a 2nd in 14

          damn I would be pissed if I were a KC Fan

          • lblocz

            yep thats a hefty price tag for smith.

    Niner’s are so set to do anything they want now, man i wish he had picks like them lol, I don’t even think they have 11 holes to fill on that team. I’m guessing they got that second rounder from KC to keep and trade their later 2nd rounder and one of their 3rds for Revis. So many options for them……

    Love this, the chiefs are setting themselves back by at least two more seasons. this is as good as the Raiders giving up all those picks for a washed up Palmer handicapping their futures by losing two years of high draft picks. Hopefully Manning has a Brett Favre like second year almost leading his new team to the super bowl in his first year then showing his age the next and playing terrible

      ooh… yea.. hoping for all the same… it is the carson palmer trade all over again. love it

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        That would be cool if they somehow get Foles too or they are going to have to draft a backup.

          we can always trade charlie whitehurst to them!
