For the second time in his career, Alex Smith may be traded and replaced with a younger quarterback.

Smith was traded by the 49ers to the Chiefs following the emergence of Colin Kaepernick. The Chiefs are considering dealing Smith to clear a path for Patrick Mahomes.

“I wish I knew,” Smith said. “I’ve got a year under contract there in Kansas City. I wish I was in control of this thing. I wish I was the one who got to do this. That’s just not the reality.”

Smith was asked about going to Cleveland and Smith said they have “nowhere to go but up” after initially saying he hadn’t given it any thought. Smith added that he loves “where I’m at”
