Kansas City Chiefs right tackle Eric Winston is ready to help quarterback Alex Smith once he officially becomes his teammate on March 12th.
“I know I’m going to do everything I can to help him,” said Winston, per USA Today Sports.
Winston believes in Smith after watching him lead the 49ers deep into the playoffs in 2011.
“It’s about winning,” Winston said. “Alex is...
According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs will be about $7.5 million under the salary cap at the start of the new league year on March 12.
While that’s typically a decent position to be in, the Chiefs are expected to franchise WR Dwayne Bowe before Monday’s deadline, which means that they’ll need to free up some additional cap space pretty soon if...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. With all the talk this week about the Chiefs' desperate need to shore up their quarterback position, a process they presumably started with the pending Alex Smith trade, coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey have another pressing issue:
A desperate need to improve their weak wide-receiver corps.
To start, the Chiefs almost surely will have to reel...
With the franchise tag deadline fast approaching (March 4th), the Kansas City Chiefs will have a decision to make on wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
The Chiefs have to decide if they’re going to place the tag on Bowe for a second straight season or let him test the free agent market, since both sides haven’t worked out a long-term extension.

When assessing the Kansas City Chiefs' acquisition of Alex Smith, let's start with what he is not:

The big talk around the National Football League the past few days has been about the trade agreed to by Kansas City and San Francisco that will send Alex Smith to the Chiefs for a second round draft pick in 2013 and a conditional draft choice in 2014.
At first, the compensation seems a little staggering but in today’s NFL, you need a quarterback to compete and new Chiefs head...
Once the San Francisco 49ers deal to trade away Alex Smith to the Chiefs is complete, they will own 12 draft picks in April’s NFL Draft. That puts them in position to make a lot of deals moving forward, especially with a high 2nd round pick. According to recent reports, the 49ers have the eyes set on New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. According to a Yahoo Sports report quoting...
It’s unclear if it’s raw speculation or has some teeth to it, but the Vikings are being mentioned as a potential landing spot for QB Matt Cassel after his expected release.
If Alex Smith waited to see where his next destination would be for a starting QB job, he was finally given a chance after waiting patiently before he checked out of San Francisco, boarded a flight and landed in Kansas City. The pressure is right on Smith after the San Francisco 49ers agreed to send the quarterback to the Kansas City Chiefs, with newly hired coach Andy Reid surrounding...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent NFL wide receiver Steve Breaston is thinking about heading over the Germany to undergo the Regenokine treatment to try and repair knee inflammation and early arthritic symptoms.
It is the same treatment that players such as Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez underwent to help save their careers.
During the procedure, a small cup of...
