NFL Rumors: San Francisco 49ers Set to Trade Alex Smith to Kansas City Chiefs?
Reports are coming fast and furious out of San Francisco and the internet that the San Francisco 49ers are finalizing a trade that will send quarterback Alex Smith out of San Francisco for draft picks. Nothing is confirmed at this point, but NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora first put it out earlier this evening that the 49ers were finalizing a deal to trade Smith, but did not indicate a team.
The only teams I can see being reasonably involved in this are the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills and possibly the Jacksonville Jaguars. If you believe what has already come out of Buffalo, they are not a buyer, so they are off the list. This leaves us with the Jaguars and Chiefs.
The Jaguars need a quarterback every bit as badly as the Chiefs, but all reports out of Jacksonville are they are pretty content with their quarterback situation for the 2013 NFL season. So that leaves us with the Chiefs. I have heard some whispers from Kansas City that this could be going down and those whispers have included a third round pick. I suspect in the next 4 to 6 hours things will become much more clear as to where Smith is going and what the 49ers are getting in return. But for now, I am banking on Smith going to Kansas City to allow them to draft Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel No. 1 overall and allow free agent offensive tackle Branden Albert to either sign and move inside to guard or sign with another team.
