ALEX SMITH RUMORS & GOSSIP

It’s quarterback contract silly season, starting with Derek Carr

The reports are in, and quarterback Derek Carr is set to become the NFL’s highest paid quarterback to the tune of a $125 million, five-year contract extension – $25 million a year for those doing the math at home.Of course, there can’t be a new contract, especially one that sets the standard for pay at the position, for a quarterback without there being a volley of takes fired...

Where's the ideal landing spot for the top QBs?

Circumstance has seen fit to bless this NFL off-season with an unusually large bounty of viable starting quarterbacks. The outset of free agency can be a whirlwind few days most years, but with the quarterback market so much in flux, this year the intrigue is more pronounced and the fate of several teams can be radically changed instantly.   Each team would obviously prefer to have...

Alex Smith left the Kansas City Chiefs’ game in Indianapolis on Sunday for the second time after taking a hit to the head. The second one looked even worse than the first. Smith had his head bounced off the playing surface at Lucas Oil Stadium in the third quarter like a basketball and left the game: Smith walked into the locker room after that brutal hit and was replaced by...

Donte Whitner on Manziel: ‘We have a starting QB next year’

Johnny Manziel suffered through a miserable game passing the ball in Week 16 and made a big mistake at the end of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Not surprisingly the Cleveland Browns lost, 17-13. Manziel finished with just 136 passing yards on 13-of-32 attempts, failing to score through the air and turning the ball over with an interception. He also failed to get the team’s...

Kansas City Chiefs Might Want To Protect Alex Smith A Little Better

It may seem hard to believe, but the Kansas City Chiefs are not out of the playoff chance by a long shot. With wins in their last three games they are now 4-5, and while the division crown is likely out of reach they can still qualify for a wild card spot.

Who could replace Alex Smith as the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs?

After signing a four-year contract extension worth $68 million right before the start of the 2014 season, its hard to imagine the Kansas City Chiefs replacing Smith in the foreseeable future. Smith, however, has failed to live up to ‘franchise quarterback’ expectations and the Chiefs are 2-5 with little hope of making the playoffs. While Kansas City will probably give Smith one...

Is this the year Alex Smith finally shrugs off his short-passing tendencies and takes shots down the field?
