Alex Smith Trade Update: Chiefs Still Favorite, Browns Interested, Cardinals Pessimistic


Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network unleashed two tweets updating us on the Alex Smith trade situation.

Here they are, in chronological order:

 

So what did we learn that we didn’t already know? Nothing.

We know that the Chiefs are the favorites to acquire Smith, as rumors and reports have been stating for the past few days.

We also know that the Browns are interested, as they should be.

Finally, the Cardinals are pessimistic that the Niners will trade within the division, which is very true. The 49ers are unlikely to want to give up Smith to a divisional opponent that they will see multiple teams a year.

Essentially, we learned nothing new, but it took an “expert” reporter to make it official.
