Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

Alex Smith Chiefs

The trade was originally reported Tuesday and when finalized, would send Smith to Washington and Fuller and a third-round pick to Kansas City. After an impressive season, Smith became the subject of endless trade speculation and Tuesday night, the Washington Redskins made the blockbuster deal to acquire the 30-year old, sending a third-round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller to Kansas City in exchange for him.

Kirk Cousins said he's not all about the money in free agency, which could put the Jets at a disadvantage.

The trade can not be finalized until March 14, when it is the official first day of the new league year, the Kansas City Star first reported the deal.

The Washington Redskins ended up landing quarterback Alex Smith, but they weren't the only interested party.

Smith holds a 3-4 record against the Eagles in seven career appearances - though one of those appearances came in Smith's rookie season in 2005 when he appeared late in a 42-3 Eagles blowout and threw one pass - and completed 62.1 percent of his passes.

Smith was traded to Washington after five seasons in Kansas City. The Kansas City Star first reported the deal. Smith received a $94 million deal with $71 million guaranteed. Patrick Mahomes could end up being one of the breakout players of 2018, and this could all be moot, but more than likely, he will experience some first-year starter struggles and the Chiefs - at the very least - may not be in the driver's seat of the AFC West anymore. However it's also clear he hadn't told any of his colleagues no matter how close they were.

Washington, which has used the franchise tag on Cousins during the past two seasons, knew they weren't going to sign him to a long-term deal. By not accepting the Redskins' offers, Cousins bet on himself. Immediately viewed as a puzzling move for a Washington team that seems to be content treading water, it will undoubtedly become one of the most polarizing deals of the offseason.

No quarterback equals no chance, and years of Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Chad Henne have meant the Patriots could hang a division banner in August. It's possible that they will want to regain some of that on draft night.

The Browns possess the top overall selection in a quarterback-rich National Football League draft that includes top prospects such as USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. And even with the sixth pick of the draft at their disposal, the Jets might not get a crack at the top or second-best prospect. But with the strength of the Jaguars' defense and the presence of prized young tailback Leonard Fournette, many within the league wonder just how good the team could be with a more consistent and reliable quarterback.
