  • Alex Smith trade could shake up draft, impact Packers

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs and Redskins came to an agreement, in principle, to send Smith to Washington in exchange for a 2018 third round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller.

Trades cannot be made until the National Football League year officially begins March 14, but that doesn't mean teams can't negotiate trade terms ahead of time.

According to ESPN, Washington is sending a third-round draft and cornerback Kendall Fuller to Kansas City in the trade, which can not be finalized until March 14.

Dorsey, as general manager of the Chiefs, traded with the 49ers to get Smith in 2013. In 15 games he went 341/505 passing for 4042 yards, 26 touchdowns, 5 interceptions and a QB rating of 104.7.

More news on this for the Redskins side of things, Washington signed Smith to a four year extension after 2018.

If the price for Cousins is too high, the Jets could retain their own free agent quarterback, Josh McCown.

Smith becomes the second Andy Reid quarterback to be traded to the Redskins - the coach moved Donovan McNabb to Washington during his time in Philadelphia, a move that never paid dividends for Washington.

"I didn't really have a reaction", Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said Wednesday of the prospect of Smith coming to the NFC East and Kirk Cousins exiting it. Smith has already reached an extension with the Redskins.

Cousins has been the biggest question hovering over Washington's offseason - and, indeed, hovering over the whole organization for a couple of years as the team failed to sign him to a long-term deal.

The Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs agreed to a surprising trade on Tuesday, with Alex Smith going to Washington to essentially replace Kirk Cousins, who will hit the free-agent market.

Speaking Tuesday on "The Dan Patrick Show," Smith said when asked where he would play in 2018 if it were up to him: "I love where I'm at".

In Week 17, Mahomes started his first game, a 27-24 win over the Denver Broncos on the road.

On the surface, teams wanting to trade for Smith makes sense, given there are many heading into the offseason with uncertainty at quarterback. From dutiful understudy to Robert Griffin the third; Cousins emerged as confident starting quarterback and smiling face of the franchise. They'd packaged four draft picks, three of them first rounders, to draft Heisman victor Robert Griffin III second overall out of Baylor.
