Chiefs Fans Respond To Alex Smith Trade Rumors

The Kansas City Chiefs are desperate for help at the QB position and because of that unfortunate fact, whenever there are rumors involving potential signal callers and KC, fans react.

Two interesting rumors regarding soon-to-be discarded 49ers QB Alex Smith hit the Twitterverse today and Chiefs responded accordingly.

The first rumor came from Ian Rapoport of


We broke down Rapoport’s report on Arrowhead Addict and then got back to our NFL Combine coverage.

Our comments section blew up as AA readers let their thoughts on the report be known.

Mike Ross
To all of those sayin we should pay Albert…the guy wants $10 million a year and has a history of back problems. Let him walk and draft Joekel. Alex Smith is a decent QB that took the 9er’s to the NFC championship game 2 seasons ago and was winning last season before being benched beause of injury. Geno is not worth the #1 overall and is not leaps and bounds better than whichever QB can be had in the 2nd rd. Save the $$$ by letting Albert walk and use that $$$ to sign Bowe, Colquitt and some decent FA’s.

Yancey Berry
Alex Smith is just temporary..I doubt he’s intended for the future long term.

Stacy D. Smith
If they’re truly hoping to retain Albert, all of this is a way to gain leverage in contract negotiations. The last thing Dorsey wants to do is look desperate. The Chiefs do have options at LT. That works in their favor.

The picture should get clearer come March 4th.

I would rather they re-sign Albert and take the DT out of Utah with the first pick. The D-line would be more of an upgrade over Albert at LT. The dude from Utah (can’t spell his name, yet) his a MUCH bigger jump over Jackson or Dorsey than Joeckle would be over Albert.

Mike Nelson
If they give anything higher than a 6th round pick for Alex, they are overpaying. If they are going to overpay, they might as well go ahead and take Geno. Maybe they will double dip and overpay for both Smiths.

The main reason I don’t support the Chiefs getting Alex Smith is because he isn’t a franchise QB and we will be overpaying him. I would prefer Matt Moore as he is not bad and a whole lot cheaper. I think I would go for Joeckel in the first rd and Barrett Jones in the second. If they keep Albert he could be LT, LG, or RT. Put them where they play the best or if they don’t want to play where they help the team the most trade or release them. It is past time that we coddle players.



Later, an even more interesting report came out from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.



As you can imagine, La Canfora’s report, combined with the Rapoport report from earlier in the day, cause a fair amount of reaction from Chiefs nation.





If it is us I will be absolutely disgusted…

my god this organization sucks . how the hell does this make us better. alex smith is cassel and not only that your trading draft picks and want to draft a olinemen to replace albert? where the hell is the improvement.

Doug McD
I think it is us and we will also pickup one in the draft to have them compete for playing time. Possibly even get Foles as well. This would make the draft more clear cut. We need to build for the long term not just now. I want it now as much as anyone does, but we need to trust the system Mr. Hunt put in place.

Stacy D. Smith
A lot of smoke there, but we’ll have to wait three weeks for this to become official.
