K.C. agrees to trade Smith to Wash­ing­ton

Lethbridge Herald - - SCOREBOARD -

Two peo­ple with di­rect knowl­edge of the trade say the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to deal quar­ter­back Alex Smith to the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins.

The peo­ple spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on Tues­day night on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the move can’t be com­pleted un­til the start of the new league year in March. One per­son tells the AP the Red­skins have agreed to a four-year ex­ten­sion with Smith, who had one year left on his con­tract.

Smith, who turns 34 in May, spent the past five sea­sons with the Chiefs, lead­ing them to the play­offs four times while throw­ing for 102 touch­downs and 33 in­ter­cep­tions.
