Getting Alex Smith may require trade

By Bill Williamson

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting it is highly unlikely the San Francisco 49ers will release quarterback Alex Smith. Thus, if the Kansas City Chiefs want him, they will likely have to trade for him.

I’d think Smith would likely command a mid-round pick with perhaps some conditions written in based on performance. Smith will probably be among the top quarterbacks Kansas City discusses acquiring.
