Chiefs Did Right by QB Alex Smith 


WISE MOVE EXTENDING ALEX SMITH
Nick AthanWarpaint Illustrated Publisher

When news broke Sunday afternoon the Kansas City Chiefs extended the contract of Quarterback, Alex Smith, through the 2018 season, it shows just how much management appreciates their franchise quarterback.

They only work in the beta forums for some reason.

no he is saying the scout links not all links. let me edit to make this more true. whatever set up nick has that posts the links doesn't work outside of the beta forum as we can post the links here by hand. just whatever nick is doing doesn't work

Yep,  KC did the right thing in extending Alex Smith for 4 more years, so he will be with the Chiefs through age 34.  Also, it forces Justin Houston to sign a reasonable contract or be tagged for 2 seasons  by the Chiefs.  Now get Smith some help at WR and the o-line.  This is a good day for Chiefs fans.  Stability at the QB position is a good thing.  The Chiefs haven't had a good QB since Trent Green.

Unfortunately I have to disagree with you on one major point Nick. We absolutely DO have a marquee contract coming due nexxt offseason. Two in fact. Berry and Poe. We gotta get those guys re-signed.

I think we can pick up the 5th year option on Poe, since he was a 1st rounder, so we don't have to worry about him until after 2016.  Berry is on a old style 6 year contract, so we don't have to worry about him until after 2015, although it would be nice to extend him by next year.
Dorsey has set it up pretty nicely now, with Houston the only must sign after this offseason, and he'll be signed or tagged, likely tagged.  Only other relatively important guy that is due a contract extension is Hudson, and I suspect they'll let him go for a potential comp pick and go with Kush, unless Hudson plays at an all pro level this year.

Did not know we had a 5th year option on Poe. That definitely helps out. If we can get Houston quickly extended/re-signed then hopefully we can jump right on those other contracts so it doesn't come down to the wire this time.

I think Smith orchestrated this to perfection.  Chiefs of course would have signed him for less, but Hunt decides, I rather settle now to give us our best shot w\ Smith ASAP. QBs who have perfect windows must come down to the wire--imo   Brees did the same
