According to Ian Rapoport of, 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 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.
