He was ousted in San Francisco by Colin Kaepernick, but the career of Alex Smith has finally seemed to find a home in Kansas City with the Chiefs. While Smith has been up and down in his career, he’s hitting a stride now that he’s in Andy Reid’s offense and the plan seems to be keeping him in such a position for a long time.
While no timetable has been giving for an extension, Herbie Teope reports that talks are ongoing between the Chiefs and Smith and that’s good news for fans.
Smith helped turn the Chiefs around in 2013 from the worst team in the league to a team that many though could compete with the Denver Broncos for AFC West supremacy. They actually led the division for a large portion of the season thanks to their 9-0 start, and they seem poised for another great season.
Keeping Smith around long-term seems to be the best way to ensure this is the case every year.
