    Beyond the teams LaCanfora mentions, Jets and Cardinals make sense right off the bat....

    I was hearing alot of rumors about KC. Don't see it being Arizona due to it being a division rival.

    Maybe Rexy thought it'd be a bright idea to ship off Revis for Smith!! :D

    KC makes a lot of sense, and they'd be my first guess. I was just offering up other QB needy teams that Harbaugh wouldn't be afraid to trade to.

    Buffalo would be another very strong candidate, IMO. Fitzpicksix is obviously not the answer, and this year's QB class blows.

    I wonder what the cost was. Cheap because teams new the 49ers were probably going to have to release him anyway or quite pricey because he's a QB with starting experience?

    I'd guess a 2nd or 3rd rounder with maybe an additional conditional pick. The 49ers already have the most picks in the draft with 11. looks like they've probably added #12 too.

    buff is too stubborn to give up on him after that contract. KC is the perfect fit

    Great stuff on the boards. Bills fans are hoping he's going to KC, and Chiefs fans are hoping he's going to Buffalo (or anywhere but KC).

    Jags GM Dave Caldwell has tweeted "not us" apparently.


    Edit:

    I'd say the Chiefs but there was a lot of talk earlier in the week about talks between them and the Eagles over Foles.

    But I've also heard they've been talking about Smith, so who knows.

    Why are Chiefs fans pissed? There team has a ton of talent, a stud RB, going from atrocious QB play to solid QB play will be the difference from 2-14 to 10-6.

    In this scenario, Smith would have a franchise LT in Joeckel blocking for him too.

    Chiefs fans want a QB drafted in the first round. They never forgave Cassel for being a veteran trade. To this day, they ignore the reality of the pile of suck that is Sanchez.

    I would be absolutely shocked if it was a 2nd. They don't have nearly as much leverage as they think they do.

    Smith is going to need guys to throw to who won't drop balls and tip things up to DBs.
    Smith and Cassel are both above-average QBs, but this will be an upgrade.

    Two bits of info, neither of which I can vouch for in terms of reliability:

    Chiefs Believed To Be Team That Acquired Alex Smith

    The third line of this one is NFSW

    ChiefsPlanet - View Single Post - Football The 49ers have expressed to others that a deal for QB Alex Smith is effectively DONE

    I think Smith could do very well with Reid, if that is what ends up happening.

    Well they are stupid then. :D

    Seriously, a stud franchise LT with the #1 pick and a solid, proven, NFL QB or a (most likely) terrible rookie QB and an above average LT with the 33rd pick.
