49ers QB Alex Smith Has Been Traded to the Kansas City Chiefs

The Browns are officially out in the Alex Smith sweepstakes, as it’s been reported that the 49ers quarterback has been traded to the Chiefs. 

From the looks of it, the 49ers are getting a king’s ransom for Smith. The Chiefs are giving up a 2013 second-round pick (No. 34 overall) along with another similarly high draft pick in 2014.

The trade won’t be official until March 12, when the league’s new year begins, but the deal is certainly in place. One should expect the Chiefs to also cut quarterback Matt Cassel.

What does this mean for the Browns? Essentially, a whole lot of nothing. Smith would never have fit the new offensive system that is in place; he’s much more suited for Andy Reid’s style. And when Cassel gets cut, no one should want him in Cleveland as anything other than a backup. There are other teams out there desperate enough to make him a starter, so he likely won’t be on the Browns’ radar.

    I would of rather had Smith than continue with Weeds…plus Smith is a year younger with more 7 more years experience…then again I guess we can always fall back to “Kid Colt” if Brandon is still lost in the Weeds…I knew he would be bad when suddenly he tripped and was run over by the huge American flag….
