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."

Trade Smith before or after the draft?
Before or during. We need help now.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon expects the Browns to have interest in acquiring Alex Smith this offseason.

It makes all the sense in the world from a dot-connecting standpoint. The Chiefs are fully expected to move on from Smith, even with him coming off his best pro season. Patrick Mahomes offers more upside, and the Chiefs believe Smith has taken them as far as he can already. In Cleveland is GM John Dorsey, who was the Chiefs' GM when they acquired Smith from the 49ers. Cleveland has a ton of cap space and can splurge at quarterback, where Smith carries a $20.9 million cap hit for 2018. The Browns need to add a veteran and high-end rookie at the position.

I wonder if the pick that's like 60 in the second round from Cleveland is what we're looking at...

Hopefully, Washington just signs Cousin to a new contract and gets him off the table. That would make Alex Smith the top Veteran QB available. Smith also comes from a trade which means it won't require a big signing bonus etc. If you have the draft picks, Alex Smith is the cheaper option.

Hes also not a crazy arrogant SOB like Cousins. Kirk thinks he should get $30m or more per year.

He could get something close to that on the market so why shouldn't he try?

There is always going to be a team desperate for a QB.

-Browns can’t possibly want to start a 21 year old in that disaster.
-If Cousins leaves, Redskins will be extremely desperate with no draft options.
-Todd Bowles has been in NY for 3 years and his 2nd rd QB was horrific.
-Denver has failed 3X finding a QB in the draft and needs to win now.
-The Cardinals have zero QB’s on the roster, Case Keenum is probably staying in Minnesota and Bradford is injured half the time.
-The Jags have Blake Bortles and no draft options.

The market will be very strong for Cousins and Alex

Might as well get used to it because until teams stop over paying for QBs.....it's only going to continue and get worse.

Think about it like this. If Mahomes had his 5th year option according to the salaries right now....his 5th year option would be $23 million. Now think what it's going to be when his ACTUAL 5th year option comes due.

Might be worth it if he lives up to his potential.

$20M for 1 year... so there has to be some sort of guarantee on a rewrite of the contract, I would think. Otherwise, no team is offering up a top pick for a 1 year $20M QB.
