Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder and quarterback Alex Smith have been on the same page during organized team activities, and Smith looked very comfortable throwing the ball to Crowder during goal-line work. Crowder was a popular preseason breakout candidate last fall, but he didn't deliver, catching only 66 passes for 789 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games in 2017. The soon-to-be 25-year-old likes to operate in the middle of the field in the short to intermediate areas, which is a strength of Smith's. It's possible Crowder breaks out this year instead, and he could come at a very nice value as a WR3.
Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said that he wouldn't discuss a trade of quarterback Alex Smith with the Denver Broncos. "I think it's pretty typical in the NFL not to seek trades within the division,'' Hunt said during his red-carpet appearance prior to the NFL's Honors show. "That's pretty standard fare particularly when we're talking about a high-profile player.'' The Chiefs ended up trading Smith to the Redskins for a second-round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller. The Broncos are certainly in the market for a quarterback this offseason after Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch failed to get it done. Smith won't be an option for them now, though, so they'll have to look to the draft or the free-agent market for an upgrade.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was traded to the Washington Redskins, according to Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star. A third-round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller will go to Kansas City in this trade, while Smith was given a four-year, $94 million extension with the Redskins once the trade goes through. The trade will not be official until the league year starts in March, but this means that quarterback Kirk Cousins is out of Washington. For the Chiefs, this means that quarterback Patrick Mahomes should be the starter in 2018.
