Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer says he know Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid “really likes Alex (Smith).”
“There was a courtship last year, to a certain degree,” Dilfer said.
Asked for specifics of Philadelphia’s dalliance with Smith, he said, “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.”
We already know the 49ers are going to try and trade Smith first before releasing him. The Chiefs may want to jump in right away and try and get a deal done so no other teams can get him.
