According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Kansas City Chiefs are showing increased interest in 49ers quarterback Alex Smith.
Andy Reid needs a quarterback that can run a west coast offense and Smithâ€™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:
â€˜The Chiefs are in the full evaluation mode of the entire organization, with general manager John Dorsey still in the process of figuring out the team he has. But word is starting to leak of their interest in the San Francisco 49ers' backup quarterback.
At this point, based on what I'm hearing, Kansas City has shown more interest than anyone else in dealing for a quarterback who could step in and start from Day 1 while the rest of the franchise is rebuilt.â€™
