Kendall Fuller is indeed the player that the Redskins are sending to Chiefs along with the third-round pick. Chiefs fleece Skins. Fuller is the second-best CB on the team behind Josh Norman.



Alex Smith isn't a franchise QB....lol

@MccloughanScot

I would have never traded Kendall. He can play inside & outside, he's high character, young & a football player

Bruce Allen can't trade for shit. Dude is constantly getting swindled.

The Redskins finally addressed their QB situation with Alex Smith, but they overpaid to do so | NBC Sports Washington

Re: Redskins trade for Alex Smith

Losing Fuller really sucks. He's going to shine.

BUT our secondary is about the only area I really don't consider like one of need (Norman, Breeland, Moreau, Dunbar, Swearinger, Nicholson, Everett).
And we basically slided down in the 3rd round.

I'd say Chiefs can be happy with the trade, they probably got a little more value than we did...

BUT I've always liked Smith quite a lot, I have him on my Dynasty League so I always kept an eye on him. He's an accurate thrower, mobile QB, doesn't make a lot of bad decisions.

Overall I'm happy to be moving on from the Cousins debacle, and I think we got a solid QB, at a reasonable price.

Keep in mind we may very well be draft a QB this year (4th round?).

(EDIT: maybe not this year but next or the year after that)

Re: Redskins trade for Alex Smith

Question: how does it work with Smith's contract extension?

He only had 1 year left on his Chiefs contract (which makes this trade a real win for them IMO), but he reportedly "agreed" to a 4 years extension with us.

Is there anything we can do to make his extension sort of part of the trade? Like if he doesn't sign it the trade is void ?

Re: Redskins Trade for Alex Smith

People were going to hate how this ended no matter what. CB was and is a position of depth for us. And Alex Smith comes in to a good offensive situation where he will flourish under Gruden.

We basically traded a young CB for a stable QB for 5 years. Unless the NFL screws us the compensatory pick the draft picks should be a wash.

This trade likely will rank like the Portis/Bailey trade. We got a little bit of a short stick but the player we got will be a good teammate for the rest of his NFL career, and except in this case the player who was the fly in the ointment was KC instead of Bailey.

Where do I get my Alex Smith jersey :

Yeah, no way to please all sides with how this QB situation was going to end...no matter what the solution. I think I like Alex Smith's cap hit much more than I would have liked KC's. Let's lock up Zach Brown now, Davenport in round 1, OL in round 2...

Re: Redskins trade for Alex Smith

Hello folks chief's fan here not to gloat at all but offer my sympathy. The worst thing about alex smith is the minnions you will get here.
They follow him not a team it is jim jones cult like creepy. I am sure you guys are like us and argue about draft picks and coaches like all fans but come gametime you are redskin fans. These people will come aboard and act like redskin fans but are alexsexuals. They made our chief's boards miserable.
When you lose it will be everyone's fault but alex. They will tell you that you are not a true redskin fan. That's right these idiots will tell you how to root for your team. Don't let alex only fans be a divisive force on your board. I have done my duty you have been warned.

I swear, our front office just sucks the fucking fan out of me. We just don't have competent people at the top of the organization.

Re: Redskins trade for Alex Smith

It was a smart decision for the front office to get Alex Smith.....they had a plan and were able to execute that plan in the obvious case that Kirk was going to exercise the leverage they allowed him to gain.

And to be clear I am not absolving the FO of blame for their previous handling of the QB situation.

They screwed it up with Kirk. They should have given him a long-term deal 1-2 years ago AND they should have been drafting and grooming viable developmental QBs. They did neither and Kirk had them over a barrel as a result.

I don't think Kirk was worth highest QB in the league money.
I think Alex is at worst a "push" in terms of QB.

I don't like losing Fuller....but let's not kid ourselves we weren't getting Alex without trade compensation. Fuller was good but he wasn't a fulltime outside CB was the 3rd WR usually going against a team 3rd WR.

Welcome to Washington Alex!

Smith INTs the last three years, 5, 8, 7. Cousins, 13, 12, 11.

Smithís fumbles 2, 7, 4. Cousins, 13, 9, 9.
Smith TDís last 3 years: 20, 15, 26. In 14 he didnít have one TD to a WR
Cousins last 3: 29, 25, 27.

Take the whole trade into consideration and I donít get it.

Smith is not an upgrade at QB. At best call it a wash.
Fuller is a good slot corner which is a valuable commodity. Add to it that heís on a rookie deal and it makes him more appealing. Unless the Skins have an in-house replacement they are going to have pay someone.
3rd rd pick

So basically the Skins gave up a young DB, and a 3rd for a 33 year old QB. There will be some cap savings but not a ton unless they can replace Fuller with another player on a rookie deal. Overall the team is worse now than before.

And in his best year he still didnít top KCís TD totals. The Chiefs also have a hell of a lot more talent on O than the Skins. Smith isnít throwing 26 TDís with the players Cousins was working with.

I thought the FO would find a way to screw this up but I never dreamed they'd botch it this bad. The Chiefs have to be laughing their A$$es of at this fleece job.

Re: Redskins trade for Alex Smith

WHy are u guys mad? Alex is a good proven winner, KC never won games. Both put up great numbers, SMith is older but for 3 years he'll shine in jays system... We had to make a move and they are paying him 23M a yr, not 28 OR 30. Fuller is a good player but that is the nature of the beast.. I am just happy its over

Disregard. Smith is reportedly signed to a 4 year extension.
And both statements are wrong, kirk and Alex both were top 10 the last 2 years throwing deep
