Contrary to popular belief, the much in demand services of 49ers QB Alex Smith may not be much in demand at all.
Especially in the case of the Kansas City Chiefs, who were viewed as a likely trade destination for Smith, who was relegated to backup status in San Francisco behind Colin Kaepernick.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the Chiefs have more interest in the Eagles' Nick Foles and soon-to-be drafted Geno Smith out of West Virginia.
As it stands right now, Foles will be locked in a QB competition with newly re-signed Michael Vick when offseason workouts begin.
Foles seems like the logical choice given his history with Andy Reid, who selected him in the 3rd round of the draft last year. He knows the system, so it'll be an easy transition. Whether they can pull off a deal with Reid's former team remains to be seen.
If not, attention turns to Geno Smith's performance at the combine, and he could end up as the one the Chiefs covet with their number one pick.
Assumingly, if that's not up to their likening, the focus could got to Smith, once again a forgotten man relegated to the back burner.
