Despite the deal not being finalized yet between the Washington Redskins and the Kansas City Chiefs, Alex Smith is expected to sign an extension with his new team. He will be with the Redskins for the next five seasons.
He has one-year on his existing contract. Then, once his deal is finalized on Wednesday — and official on March 14th — he will have four-years added to his contract.
He’s expected to receive $94 million, beginning in 2019. Smith has $70 million guaranteed coming to him.
Smith has signed a long-term agreement with the team shortly after the trade was leaked by the Kansas City Star. The Chiefs are expected to get a third-round draft pick and a player in the deal.
Smith does something that Kirk Cousins could not do, or refused to do. After making $43-plus after back-to-back franchise tags, he’s going to be free to test the free agent market.
Cousins has been criticized for not signing a long-term deal in Washington. Now, he’s expected to sign a long-term deal with his new team.
The Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals both are expected to be the front-runner for Cousins. The Broncos have three quarterbacks — but Brock Osweiler will be a free agent and the team hopes to move Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.
The Cardinals are looking to replace Carson Palmer, who retired earlier this month. He was the team’s starter after being acquired in a trade with the Oakland Raiders in 2013.
