Three days after the 2018 Pro Bowl, Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith got some news he was probably not expected to hear. While everyone was sleeping, the Kansas City Chiefs contacted the Washington Redskins to see if the Redskins would want to trade Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith.
According to ESPN NFL Reporter Adam Shefner, the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to receive a second round pick and possibly more.
Alex Smith’s NFL career started in 2005 when he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. In his eight years in San Francisco, his record as the starting quarterback was 38-36-1, threw 67 percent of his passes, but couldn’t get the 49ers to the playoffs. In 2013, he was then traded to the Kansas City Chiefs wherein the five seasons he was there he led the Chiefs to the playoffs but not the Super Bowl.
Now in the upcoming 2018 season, Smith will be playing for a new team and a new conference and division.
