The rich just got richer: 49ers ship Alex Smith to Kansas City for second round pick in 2013, 2014 selection

The rich just got richer as the San Francisco 49ers are set to deal quarterback Alex Smith to Kansas City.

According to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers will get a second-round pick this year and a similar selection in the 2014 draft, in exchange for quarterback Alex Smith.

‘That’s a haul for the 49ers, who have more draft picks than will ever make their roster this year (which could put them in prime position to make a run at disgruntled Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis).

Paying that kind of price also speaks to the Chiefs figuring out a deal to extend Smith, since that kind of price for two years seems excessive.’
