He wants to win.
or what was more than likely, knew what he had Kaep from the moment he met him when him and greg roman went out to personally work him out in Nevada. And Kaep was more when, than if he was going to take over, and Alex Smith was a decent stop gap to give Kaep the time he needed.
That's actually how it happened....He was always married to Kaep, that's why they traded up for him. Alex was a lame duck from the word go..
