Washington announces Alex Smith trade

It seems like months ago that the Chiefs traded Alex Smith to Washington. The teams agreed to the trade on January 30, with the Chiefs getting cornerback Kendall Fuller and a third-round pick, but it didn’t become official until now.

Washington announced the transaction, with Smith holding an introductory press conference tomorrow at the team training complex.

Washington replaces Kirk Cousins with Smith, and the Chiefs replace Smith with Patrick Mahomes.

Smith, 33, originally entered the league as the No. 1 overall choice in 2005. The 49ers traded him to the Chiefs on March 12, 2013. Now, he moves again.

  1. That plane ride must have taken forever since Smith can only go 8 yards at a time in the air

  2. 3#1 picks 2 2nd round picks and a 3rd rounder gets us mcnabb rg3 and alex smith. Cousins cost us a 4th rounder and is better than all 3 yet here we are taking another step back while losing picks to help us get better. With doug williams in charge we’ re looking at 3-13 at best.

  3. The next time Alex puts the team on his back goes down to get a score to win the game…will be the first time.

  4. From a Chiefs fan…GREAT dude. His charity, which helps kids who age out of foster care, is about as worthy of a cause as you could possibly find.

    Close, only off by 22. As in Alex Smith has 22 game winning drives, making him number 11 on the all time list ahead of such QBs as: Aaron Rogers, Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, and of course Kirk Cousins (who has only 12).

    But who needs stats when you can just repeat what you heard someone else say.

  6. Whew! Thankfully, no one changed their mind before this went down officially. I can’t stand watching guys play combat sports scared to death all the time.

  7. Losing Fuller is a huge blow to our defense. I’d rather have kept him and gone after Kenum or Bradford; or even waited and see if the chiefs released him, everyone knows they were in love with mahomes (and everyone seems to be shedding salaries). I was starting to have hope for our defense. Add a few pieces along the line, re-sign brown, upgrading our safety and cb depth, and most of all stay healthy. But I felt like we had some young pieces that could contribute. This offseason seem so like a huge step back.

    That is 8yds/attempt. He actually had 11.9 yds/completion. And that 8yds/attempt is second in the NFL behind Drew Brees.

    My bad…I meant to say “playoff game”. So you are telling me you would take Alex over any of those guys?
