Trent Dilfer spent a lot of time with Alex Smith in San Francisco, and thus became good friend with the quarterback. So when Dilfer says that this isn’t the first time Andy Reid has had interest in Smith, its sound information.
The San Francisco Chronicle quotes ESPN's Trent Dilfer as saying Reid "really likes Alex."
The common thought is that Smith is a main target for the Chiefs, and they will either try to trade for him, or wait until his release and attempt to sign him.
Dilfer added about the 2011 flirtation:
"I don't know a whole lot. I just know there was a courtship. It was not even an inside source, you know what I mean? It was just kind of the scuttle in the offseason," Dilfer said.
