Browns Looked to Deal for Chiefs QB Alex Smith Before He Was Dealt to Washington

The Browns interest in Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was real for sure, but in the end the Chiefs decided they would rather deal with a team from the NFC, trading him Tuesday night to the Washington Redskins.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reported after the deal to the Redskins was done that indeed the Browns attempted to get Smith, but the Chiefs decided to deal with the Skins instead.

This last season was the best for the 33-year-old Smith, who started the season 6-0 before falling on hard times but still winning the AFC West.

Smith threw for career-highs in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7), throwing just five interceptions this past season for the Chiefs.

The move for the Redskins to get Smith could mean the door is open for Kirk Cousins, who obviously won’t be back in D.C. after the Redskins also agreed on a four-year extension with Smith.
