With the Kansas City Chiefs coveting Patrick Mahomes skill set, and NFL teams in dire need of a quality starter at quarterback, could Alex Smith be preparing to play his final game in Arrowhead Stadium?
According to Ian Rapoport — the Kansas City Chiefs are open to trading Smith this offseason thanks in part to half the teams in the league needing a viable option at starting quarterback.
Kansas City won’t actively seek out trade partners, but they will listen. There is a real chance Smith, who’s set to make $17 million next season, will be dealt for the second time in his career.
When Smith was traded from the San Francisco 49ers to the Chiefs in 2013, it wound up being for a price of two second-round picks. Smith could fetch more this time — in part because of his recent success.
According to the report, only a Super Bowl run could prevent the Chiefs from potentially moving on from the NFL’s highest-rated passer.
