According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the 49er are laying the groundwork for an Alex Smith trade.
The Kansas City Chiefs are showing increased interest in the 49ers quarterback, and are considered front runners at this point.
The 49ers are working the combine, trying to gauge the interest for a possible trade when the new league year starts March 12th.
Andy Reid and the Chiefs needs a quarterback that can run a west coast offense and Smith’s skill set is a good match for the short to intermediate passing offense.
Smith also has the experience to help close the gap while the Chiefs rebuild, giving them the best chance to win. Rapoport writes:
‘The 49ers spent this week trying to lay ground for a Smith deal, and they'll do the same next week before trading becomes an official option on March 12, when free agency begins. Plus, the Chiefs could draft a developmental quarterback and know Smith won't tear the place apart if he's replaced.’
