Many Chiefs fans still believe he’s a Super Bowl quarterback.
I don’t…at least not here.
The Skins had to move on from Kirk Cousins who just wanted too much dough and was not even getting Washington into the playoffs. So don’t cry for Alex, he is set to get a minimum of $70 plus million and up to over $90 million for four years, perhaps five. He will pocket $300 million dollars for his entire NFL career assuming this is his last stop. Cousins is 29 and Smith is 33, but Alex had better numbers this year than Kirk.
The Chiefs also got a likely all pro corner from Washington and a 3rd round draft pick.
That opens up draft space saving most of Alex Smith’s $20 million dollar salary this season on the trade.
More importantly, Smith never won a big playoff game and Patrick Mahomes seems to be the Chiefs answer to that problems
We shall see.
Smith had a say in where he went.
Rumors had him wanting the Jags, Florida and a great defense, but they are standing pat.
Washington is a good not great team, as Smith seems to be comfortable with these days. I believe he was ready to leave KC. He knew he’d gone about as far as he could here with no post season glory and it was time to move on.
Maybe Washington will provide a nice exit for Alex.
I hope so…best of luck, dude.
