alex smithThe Chiefs are working on signing quarterback Alex Smith to a contract extension, but things are moving slowly, according to ProFootballTalk.com.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith acknowledged on Tuesday that talks aimed at extending a contract that expires after the coming season are underway. And indeed they are.

But a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the discussions are moving very, very slowly.

PFT says the talks could pick up after next month’s draft.
