Kansas City Chiefs: Is Patrick Mahomes taking over soon?

Chiefs fans showing appreciation for Alex Smith by donating to his foundation

That changed on Tuesday night when Washington reached an agreement with the Kansas City Chiefs to exchange cornerback Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft pick for quarterback Alex Smith.

There is no word on the compensation yet, and any trade involving Smith can't be completed until the first day of the new league year, which begins at 3 p.m. on March 14.

On Tuesday night, the Washington Redskins acquired quarterback Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs in a move that shook up the quarterback market.

A front office that never seemed to get along with Cousins, the Redskins are now officially out of the race for Captain Kirk and will move forward with Smith, who is expected to sign a four-year, $71-million extension with the Redskins.

Kirk Cousins, who went from a backup plan to record setter with the Washington Redskins, will play somewhere else next season.

Which leads to the question: If Smith is worth $94 million, what in the heck will free-agent-to-be Kirk Cousins make?

One of the biggest stories of the National Football League offseason will be the future home of Washington Redskins quarterback and Pro Bowler Kirk Cousins.

Cousins will have plenty of suitors with teams like Arizona, Jacksonville, Cleveland and the New York Jets reportedly interested in his services, but having Washington out of the picture bolsters the Broncos chances of landing the prized free agent. This means the Browns might not have to use the No. 1 overall pick on a quarterback.

South Korean officials had said they were hoping Cha would be in position in time for the Olympics, which will be attended by U.S. Ji stood when introduced and raised a pair of battered wooden crutches above his head in response to the sustained applause.

Smith to Washington crosses off one team from the list of quarterback-needy teams this offseason. They have several veteran players - Demaryius Thomas and C.J. Anderson to name a few - whose deals could be scrapped to help make room for Cousins' salary.

With Garoppolo locking down the job in San Francisco and the Redskins officially out of the race, Cousins' value is somewhat diminished.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins and wide receiver Bennie Fowler of the Denver Broncos shake hands after the Redskins defeated the Broncos 27-11 at FedExField on December 24, 2017.

And the team signing Cousins won't either.

Imagine the Jets, who early on lost four games in five weeks by a touchdown or less, putting Cousins under center instead of 38-year-old has-been Josh McCown.

The Redskins would be virtually guaranteed a third round pick for Cousins in the 2019 NFL Draft as a compensatory pick. The Chiefs sent their first-round pick in this year's draft to Buffalo in the deal that landed Mahomes.

It's clear he has a lot to live up to in the responses of Chiefs players, past and present, to the news that Smith had been traded. "The Jets are projected to have more than $70 million in cap space this year".

Smith is "one of the best competitors and teammates I've ever been around", Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce posted on Twitter.
