Redskins reportedly reach agreement on extension with Alex Smith

Here's what happens when an NFL QB fires a bullet pass at your head

Smith will become Washington's new franchise quarterback after throwing for 31,888 yards and 183 touchdowns in 12 National Football League seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and Chiefs.

Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports that the Kansas City Chiefs are trading quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins. Coach Doug Pederson was the offensive coordinator under Chiefs coach Andy Reid - the ex-Eagles coach - when Smith arrived in Kansas City in 2013, and the pair spent three seasons together.

Out of nowhere Tuesday night, the Kansas City chiefs agreed to trade quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins according to ESPN and multiple reports.

The transaction can't be completed until March 14, the official start of the NFL's year. Smith, who had one year remaining on his contract, has agreed to a reworked, four-year deal with Washington, ESPN reported. Last offseason, he showed no interest in reaching a long-term deal with Washington and, in fact, reportedly chose not to even respond to the offer team President Bruce Allen offered, instead wanting to wait and watch the direction the team took as it looked to the future. Mahomes played in the final game of the year, leading Kansas City to a win over the Denver Broncos. Fuller will likely move to slot CB in nickel packages. Smith put up good stats this season with over 4,000 yards passing and 27 touchdowns, as stated on NFL.com. He turns 23 next month. He will be the first franchise quarterback without health concerns to hit free agency in a long time.

The Vikings are scheduled to have $53 million in cap space this offseason and some of that money is expected to be used to sign a few of their current players to lucrative extensions. But, it also means a cap savings of $17 million. Wow. The Chiefs sent their first-round pick in this year's draft to Buffalo in the deal that landed Mahomes. Expect Smith's arrival to slow Doctson's ascent in the wide receiver rankings, though it could result in Jamison Crowder, whose average depth of target was 6.9 yards, enjoying a boost in numbers. The team also acquired a conditional seventh-round round pick from Arizona for Marcus Cooper, but it is not know if the Chiefs qualified for the pick.

Meanwhile, for the Chiefs, they are now all-in on Patrick Mahomes as their starting quarterback.

Several teams in need of a franchise quarterback could pursue the 29-year-old Cousins, including the Jets.
