Chiefs Agree To Trade For Alex Smith

Feb 27, 2013 12:03 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to trade for Alex Smith with the San Francisco 49ers.

The deal cannot become official until Mar. 12.

The 49ers will get a No. 2 pick in this year's draft and a similar pick in 2014, according to a source that spoke with Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News.

Smith lost his job as starting quarterback of the 49ers to Colin Kaepernick following a concussion. Kaepernick quickly ended the controversy with several signature performances and eventually led the 49ers to an appearance in the Super Bowl.

With this bold trade, Andy Reid is clearly gambling his success with the Chiefs on the performance of Smith.

The Browns, Cardinals and Jaguars were the other teams believed to be interested in trading for Smith.

Harbaugh: 49ers Have Best QB Situation In NFL

Feb 22, 2013 8:15 PM

Jim Harbaugh believe the San Francisco 49ers are dealing from a position of strength when it comes to the quarterback position.

The 49ers will start Colin Kaepernick at quarterback next season and at least appear willing to keep Alex Smith if they are unable to find a trade.

"Alex is really playing the best football of his career the last two years. We think we got the best quarterback situation in the National Football League, feel strongly about that. Again, that’ll be a process that plays out. Alex Smith continuing to be a 49er or if a trade occurs in the next weeks or months. Those are the two possibilities, most likely possibilities.”

Harbaugh was explicitly asked if it is unlikely that Smith will be released.

"That's unlikely," said Harbaugh.

Flynn is a luxury for the Seahawks considering Russell Wilson is entrenched as starting quarterback.

The San Francisco 49ers believe they can trade Alex Smith this offseason.

Smith, however, received relatively little interest last offseason as a free agent.

The 49ers could elect to steer Smith out of their division, for example, trading him to the Cleveland Browns in order to keep him from the Arizona Cardinals.
