Despite rumors suggesting the Kansas City Chiefs were looking to select a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft, the team decided to address other needs and left a handful of potential arms on the board.
Before the draft, noise around the league hinted that the Chiefs and current signal caller Alex Smith were struggling to find middle ground on a contract extension, thus the rumored desire to draft a quarterback.
Of course, that could have been nothing more than lip service on the part of the Chiefs who were attempting to gain leverage in contractual talks.
“We’ve had continual conversations with his representatives,” said Dorsey. “We’re at that point now where we’re going back and forth,” Dorsey said. “Eventually, as (with) all negotiations, there will be a medium point where both sides agree.”
Smith will be entering the final year of his contract so it’s presumed both sides would like to hammer something out before the start of the season, especially after the Chiefs parted with two-second round picks to acquire the quarterback last season.
