The San Francisco 49ers made their trade of quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs official on Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the two sides agreed to it. The 49ers will receive the Chiefs' second-round pick, 34th overall, and a conditional choice in next year's draft, a person familiar with the terms told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms were not disclosed. Smith must still pass a physical for the trade to be completed. The 28-year-old Smith struggled much of his career in San Francisco, but blossomed the past couple seasons under new coach Jim Harbaugh and is considered an upgrade for Kansas City. The Chiefs are expected to release incumbent quarterback Matt Cassel.

  • Not a k.c. fan, know alex smith has had a rough time. I truly hope he has a great year. He like other players that have struggled in various degrees has had the hell beat out of him by so called experts long enough. People seem to forget what a small percentage of athletes ever make it to the pros in any sport. Most of the jackasses that trash alex have never done a Damn thing but bad mouth a young can that realised his dream. Enough of your unsolicited bull_ _ _ _.
