Market for Alex Smith will be strong, Ian Rapoport says

Market for Alex Smith will be strong, Ian Rapoport says
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network thinks the Chiefs could get a solid trade haul in return for Alex Smith.
Kirk Larrabee - 3 hours ago 0

The Kansas City Chiefs should have no problem finding a trade partner for Alex Smith this offseason and could come away with a strong haul in return, according to insider Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Rapoport, who reported over the weekend the Chiefs would be listening to offers for Smith this offseason, was a guest on The Day Shift on 610 Sports Radio Kansas City Monday, where he was asked about the level of interest in Alex Smith and whether or not the Chiefs will be able to trade him.

"A lot," Rapoport said. "A lot, and yes."

Smith is coming off his best statistical season of his career as he threw for 4,042 yards in 2017 with 26 touchdowns, five interceptions, and a 104.7 passer rating. Rapoport says it's that performance along with what Smith can bring to a team's quarterback room that makes him such a hot commodity.

"He was number one in the NFL in passer rating," Rapoport said. "He is a great person, so if you trade for him and then draft a quarterback high, you will get someone who's going to help him. All you need to do is ask Patrick Mahomes. It's actually an amazing thing what a great person Alex Smith is because he's dealt with a lot of crap in his career despite mostly awesome and has come out the other side of it."

There have been several teams speculated to be good fits for Smith, with different situations among each of them. There's the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills, playoff teams that are still fighting quarterback woes; there's the Arizona Cardinals, a team whose starting quarterback, Carson Palmer, just retired, but still has enough talent to be competitive next season; and there's a team like the Cleveland Browns, who might be interested in acquiring Smith to not just help the team start winning again but to be a mentor to a quarterback they might select in the draft.

The latter situation might not seem like an ideal one to many quarterbacks, but Smith has done it before, and Rapoport thinks he might not have a problem doing it again.

"If I was a franchise quarterback, would I really want to help the guy who is brought in to replace me? I don't know," Rapoport said. "For some ridiculous reason, Alex Smith has done it several times, and he's continued to be a great guy. He's going to end up benefiting from all this because first of all, he's probably going to wind up being traded somewhere great. Second of all, I think his legacy will sort of live on and people will know what a good person he is."

Trading Smith would free up $17 million in cap space for the Chiefs, a much-needed amount for a team currently projected to be over the cap next year, and would also allow them to replenish some of the draft picks they traded away in multiple trades in recent months. It cost a 2013 second round pick and a 2014 conditional pick (which turned out to be another second round pick) for the Chiefs to acquire Smith from the San Francisco 49ers in 2013, and Rapoport thinks the Chiefs could get even more in return for Smith than that.

"I think they might do better this time," Rapoport said. "He is a hot commodity, and they are in unbelievable position."

Alex can absolutely improve another team, just not this one.

I would be extremely excited if I was a Browns fan and he was my QB.

A 21 year old rookie QB should not be the savior for the worst team in NFL history. Thatís too much pressure.

I would want some stability and Alex will help bring that to them.

There you go. Alex is made for a team that he doesn't have to carry, and that Jags defense is legit. THEY would carry the team, plus Fournette looks to be a solid starter at RB for years to come. Let's see what kind of chops Veach has - go get their first and third for Alex and our sixth.

If they really do not like any of the QB's in the draft, I think they could sell the fan base on Alex being their QB. I just do not see them burning either of their 1sts on a QB and then giving up high picks for Smith. Their roster has too many holes to burn multi picks on two QB's, need to make a call on your QB for the next 5 years and go with it.

I feel bad if Mahomes is in a situation where he has to try and carry the team. Very few quarterbacks have done that in recent history with success. It'll look like the 2011 Lions where it's huge yards/completions but mediocre W-L

Defense. Wins. Championships.

That is where Alex’s veteran salary and Pat’s cheap rookie salary comes into play. Get some trade value for Alex to acquire young defensive talent, save money at QB and spend it on defense/OL, and cut some of the older defensive salaries to help pay for younger defensive talent.
