Alex Smith is totally the Chiefs next quarterback maybe

Will the Chiefs welcome Alex Smith in a couple weeks?
  • Will the Chiefs welcome Alex Smith in a couple weeks?

The Chiefs' off-season rebirth is possibly going to have another major component in a couple of weeks. After hiring Andy Reid as the team's new head coach and John Dorsey as the new general manager, the team still needs a new quarterback. And reports indicate that the San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith is coming to town in a trade.

CBS Sports reporter Jason La Canfora tweeted yesterday that the 49ers had a deal in place that was "effectively complete." The trade can't be completed until March 12 when the NFL's new year begins. NFL.com similarly reports that the Chiefs are the club showing the most interest in Smith

Smith was having a bad-ass season for the 49ers last year until he fell victim to concussions and backup Colin Kaepernick's breakout performances that led the team to the Super Bowl.

If this trade does go down, its impact on the Chiefs would be huge. The team shuffled between two crappy quarterbacks last season with Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn. Between Reid, having the first pick in the NFL draft this spring, and possibly Smith, the 2013 Chiefs should be much different from 2012's Hindenburg of a season. Can we be excited now?
