Breaking: Deal To Send Alex Smith To Chiefs Trade Agreed Upon

USA TODAY Sports

According to Jay Glazer, a trade to send Alex Smith from the 49ers to the Chiefs has been agreed upon.

The 49ers have reportedly agreed to a deal that would send quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL insider Jay Glazer.

The Chiefs have been in the market for a new quarterback as they made it clear in 2012 that they were unsatisfied with the play of Matt Cassel, benching him in favor of Brady Quinn, which didn't work out either. Many analysts have predicted that the Chiefs would use their No. 1 overall pick on West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, the top quarterback in this year's draft class. However, due to the fact that many believe there isn't a quarterback worthy of a No. 1 overall pick, like there was last year with both Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, it's not surprising that the Chiefs made a move.

Smith led the 49ers to the NFC Championship game in 2011 and was having a good year in 2012 before he suffered a concussion, causing Jim Harbaugh to start backup Colin Kaepernick, a move which became permanent.

In his eight years in the league, Smith has thrown for 14,280 yards, 81 touchdowns and 63 interceptions.
