Chiefs Trade Smith to Washington

Looking at the graphic, with Alex Smith's numbers being on the left and Kirk Cousins' being on the right, according to past year at least, the Redskins and fantasy owners will be getting the same quarterback for all intents and purposes.

The Chiefs' motives are easy to understand, and if Smith has agreed to what we hear is a four-year, $94 million extension with over $70 million guaranteed, we see what Washington is thinking as well.

Smith, 33, spent the past five seasons with the Chiefs, leading them to the playoffs four times while throwing 102 touchdown passes and 33 interceptions.

Smith becomes Washington's quarterback, with a $17 million salary-cap hit for 2018.

Smith will replace Kirk Cousins in Washington, who will be allowed to leave the Redskins as a free agent. He has passed for more than 4,000 yards each year with at least 25 touchdown passes and no more than 13 interceptions.

All eyes in Kansas City, where the Chiefs will add a third-rounder after dealing their first- to Buffalo last April for Mahomes, shift to the rocket-armed Texas Tech product who takes over an offense with three electrifying weapons in Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt.

The Chiefs clearly trust Mahomes, who brings tremendous athleticism and arguably better passing ability than Smith. They'd packaged four draft picks, three of them first rounders, to draft Heisman victor Robert Griffin III second overall out of Baylor.

However, nobody expected the trade to happen during Super Bowl LII [VIDEO]week. Jets, Schmets. The Denver Broncos are free to prowl for a quarterback named Kirk Cousins.

The move comes as a shock after months of speculation about Cousins' future in Washington. The Jets are coming off back-to-back 5-11 seasons, which doesn't scream contender, but they are expected to have almost $100 million to spend, so they could potentially win over Cousins through their actions.

The Chiefs went into the 2017 draft intent on selecting Mahomes, a player they had scouted for multiple years.

David Canter, an agent who represents several National Football League players for DEC Management, said Rodgers should shoot for a fully guaranteed deal spread out over four or five years. "I love it here, I'm thankful for the opportunity and I know the type of player I'm capable of and I'm still a top-tier player in the league".
