Chiefs agree to trade Smith to Redskins

You have to wonder whether Smith's desire to go to a Super Bowl-ready (or at least playoff-ready) team was a factor in the Chiefs' decision to not send him to Cleveland. He had 26 touchdown passes and only five interceptions, and he led the league with a passer rating of 104.7.

Alex Smith has reportedly agreed to a four-year $94 million contract extension. with the Washington Redskins.

And it's hard to feel great about paying a quarterback who turns 34 in May an average of $23.5 million per year.
