First, thanks for providing the clarification, PhinsFammel. It just seems odd a team would give up a 2nd Rd Draft Pick this year and a conditional pick in 2014 on a QB, they have not spoken with. I understand this happens quite a bit, we saw it on hard Knocks with Vontae..............but this is a bit different. First, he's the most important player on the team, second he got a contract extension last year so he's due $8 mil/yr.
I guess KC felt they needed to pull the switch, and did not want him meeting with other teams.
If you're KC you have to determine whether Alex Smith can do more for you in the next 5 years than any QB prospect you might get in the 2nd round this year and next. They have weapons and he's proven to be a very efficient QB. Its expensive to get a QB who can perform.
