  • Alex Smith traded..

    According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, the 49ers have "expressed to others" that an Alex Smith trade is "effectively complete."
    Any potential deal cannot be finalized until the new league year begins on March 12. La Canfora does not know the acquiring team, but lists the Chiefs and Jaguars as "two teams that make sense." Both NFL.com and Yahoo Sports have reported in the past three days that the Chiefs were Smith's most dogged pursuer. Although his arm limitations were as evident as ever last season, Smith would be an acceptable stop-gap option in Andy Reid's West Coast offense. Smith isn't expected to fetch more than a mid-round pick -- probably a fourth-rounder. Feb 24 - 5:54 PM

      The Chiefs are ******ed. They need to look for fresh air. Alex Smith isn't going to help them that much. This is just going to hurt the Chiefs more for more years.

              Brandon Albert is one of the best LTs in the league...

              And Cassel has had better seasons than Smith has ever had. 2010 for instance, Cassel had 3110 yards 27 TDs and 7 ints. Closest to that Smith has ever been was 2011 when he had 3,140 yards, 17 TDs and 5 Ints.

              They are really not much different as QBs.

                I had heard the Browns were also a possibility in those Trade Rumors
                Football has been very, very good to us.
                After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                4-New York Giants!!!
                5-NE
                Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                      If anyone can help Smith have success at QB in KC, it'll be Andy Reid. Better than him going to the Jets or Browns for instance. Hope it works out for Alex Smith, he really got shafted by San Fransisco.

                        Turns out he hasn't even been traded.

                        Useless analysts and their equally useless "sources"...

                          The 49ers are getting rid of Alex Smith either way. This was written in stone back in December. The 49ers were absolutely not going to keep him at $9+ mil per year as a backup to Kaepernick, whose on a rookie-capped contract. Anyone whose thinks they were is going to be wrong. The 49ers also stand to pretty much recoup almost all of Alex Smith's cap hit for 2013 by getting rid of him with only $1 million guaranteed so far for 2013 and roughly $8-9 million in imminent team cap savings. Trading is also a better option than just plain releasing a player since the team gets something in return with a trade. Then,...Enter a low-tier team that's desperate for a starting QB. I would not be surprised if it was the Chiefs/Jags and I wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers got a 1st or 2nd for Smith or some decent player from one of those teams. So instead of the 49ers basically releasing Alex Smith before his 2013 cap hit becomes guaranteed by 4/1/13 according to his contract, the 49ers are getting some or alot of value in return. You ask why a low tier team would be suckered into a lopsided trade like the Bengals-Raiders Carson Palmer trade? Simple, cause they are poorly managed to begin with and a better managed team is simply capitalizing on the situation.

                            49ers reportedly agreed to trade Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs for the Chiefs' 2013 second round pick (No. 34) and a conditional mid-round pick in 2014. Hook line and sinker. 49ers capitalized on the basement Chiefs instead of economically being forced to release Alex Smith for nothing.You're welcome.

                            This is going out on a limb here, but a big if they are desperate for Victor Cruz, The recouped $8-9 million cap space from trading away Alex Smith and forking over their first round (No. 31 pick) for the tender is now a possibility. The team salary cap would be the only hurdle left.

                              They essentially get a late 1st round pick and conditional 2nd or 3rd next year. The 49ers WON! Smith is not going to save KC's franchise. They were better off drafting Geno IMO and starting fresh.

                              The way I see it....this might be Karma for Andy Reid getting that ridiculous deal for Kevin Kolb. Now it's Andy's turn to be on the flip side.
