The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to extend the contract for QB Alex Smith, per Jason Cole. Smith was a stable force for the Chiefs at the quarterback position this season and helped the team go from the worst team in the league to the NFL playoffs.
Smith’s performance in the playoffs was excellent as well. He led the Chiefs offense to 44 points in their loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He didn’t even have his best weapon, Jamaal Charles, during most of the game.
Smith will be entering the final year of his contract and is set to make $7.5 million. In his last 3 seasons, Smith has a 30-9-1 record. He just finds a way to win games.
The Chiefs offense was a lot more potent toward the end of the year as Smith became more comfortable in the offense. They will be looking to carry that momentum over with them to next season on offense.
With Smith locked in for a few seasons, the team can look to load up on other parts of the roster this offseason so that the team can take the next step. Smith is a stable starter and will find ways to win the game.
