49ers Trade Alex Smith to the Chiefs

The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to trade QB Alex Smith to the Chiefs for a 2nd round pick (#34) in this years draft and also a conditional selection in the 2014 draft.

Alex Smith was the #1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.  Until the past two seasons, Smith never really lived up to expectations.

As a result of the trade the Chiefs are expected to release QB Matt Cassel.  Cassel has 2 years remaining on his 6 year 63 million dollar deal he signed with the Chiefs after he was acquired via trade from the New England Patriots.

Smith lost his job in week 2 after a concussion to Colin Kaepernick.  Kaepernick led the 49ers to the Super Bowl and lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
