Alex Smith can't find the end zone Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith couldn't find the end zone Week 2 against the Broncos.

Smith completed 26 of 42 passes for 255 yards. He averaged just 6.1 yards per attempt. As a result, running back Knile Davis led the team with six receptions. Smith did attempt to lead a game-winning drive, even getting his team down to the 2 yard line. With the game on the line, Smith couldn't complete a fourth down pass. The ball was tipped at the line and deflected, ending the comeback attempt. Smith also had 42 rushing yards.

Smith will take on the Dolphins Week 3. 


Alex Smith throws three interceptions in Week 1 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw all of seven interceptions in 508 pass attempts in 2013. It took him just one game in 2014 to nearly total half that many interceptions.

Smith was picked off three times Sunday against the Titans, as the Chiefs were beat 26-10 at home. Smith, who was missing top receiver Dwayne Bowe due to a suspension, completed 19 of 35 passes for one touchdown. He also rushed for a team-high 36 yards on six carries.

Smith's lone touchdown of the afternoon came late in the game, as Tennessee was already leading 23-3. Smith connected with tight end Anthony Fasano for a 5-yard touchdown with 10:09 left in the game.

The Chiefs hit the road for a Week 2 showdown with AFC West foe Denver.


Alex Smith aims for second straight win vs. Titans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Quarterback Alex Smith led Kansas City to a 26-17 win Week 5 at Tennessee last season and looks to lead the Chiefs to another win against the Titans this season, as the two teams meet for a rematch Week 1.

Smith passed for a career-high 3,313 yards and 23 touchdowns last season. Though, none of those passing touchdowns came in the win against Tennessee. It was a disappointing performance from a Fantasy perspective, but not many quarterbacks had standout performances against Tennessee last season.

Quarterbacks averaged just 14.3 Fantasy points per week against Tennessee, which was the third-lowest average. Only three quarterbacks threw for multiple touchdowns. QBs also averaged 239.9 passing yards per game against the Titans.

Smith had at least 20 Fantasy points in eight games last season, including three of the first four. But he had some pretty bad weeks too, finishing with less than 10 Fantasy points four times. Smith is more of a backup Fantasy quarterback and should be treated as a No. 2 option for Week 1.


Chiefs, Alex Smith agree to four-year extension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) With just a week before the start of the regular season, the Chiefs and quarterback Alex Smith agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $68 million, with $45 million guaranteed, according to the Kansas City Star on Sunday.

Smith, 30, was acquired from San Francisco in a March 2013 trade. He threw for a career-high 3,313 yards and 23 touchdowns, leading his team to an 11-5 campaign in 2013.


Alex Smith intercepted twice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Playing without No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe and star running back Jamaal Charles, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith struggled Saturday against the Vikings. Smith completed 14 of 24 passes for 140 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions.

Smith, who ran three times for 21 yards, has accounted for three turnovers and zero scores this preseason.


Chiefs yearn to expand horizons of Alex Smith in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Andy Reid and Chiefs quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy are working with quarterback Alex Smith to throw deeper balls more consistently this season. That word came from the start of training camp, according to ESPN.

"Let's let the ball rip a little bit," Nagy told Smith. "It's practice. Let's see what we can get away with and what we can't get away with so when the games come we know where we're at."

The Chiefs are seeking to make more big plays than they did a year ago. They believe that Smith, who threw just seven interceptions in 2013, can add the long ball without sacrificing accuracy or adding picks.

"We're a little more aggressive right now in training camp with some downfield throws as far as his decision making," Nagy added. "We're telling him to push the ball. You may see an interception here or there that he may not necessarily make in a game but we're telling him to do that, trust it and just see what happens. Now, when we get to a game, let's make the right decision."

A successful vertical passing game could create space to make explosive featured back Jamaal Charles even more of a threat in 2014.


Alex Smith on pay-as-you-go deal: No thanks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith told USA Today that he's not interested in a contract extension structured like the one the Bengals just gave Andy Dalton. That six-year extension functions more like a two-year contract, as it's essentially pay-as-you-go after Year 2.

"I want to get something that's right that I'm going to play out, absolutely, and that's definitely a focus of mine," he said.

Smith continues to hope the sides can work out an extension before the season. He's scheduled to make $7.5 million this season, the final year of his deal.


Alex Smith does little in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith did not make much of an impact during Thursday's preseason opener against the Bengals.

Smith stayed in the game with the first-team offense for three drives and loss a fumble after getting sacked in the second series of the game. He completed 3 of 5 passes for 19 yards, averaging 3.8 yards per attempt.

The Chiefs will travel to Carolina to face the Panthers on Aug. 17.

Alex Smith will table negotiations at some point


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Chiefs and Alex Smith continue to discuss a contract extension, but the quarterback said Wednesday that at some point he will table those talks, reports the Kansas City Star.

"You’re getting to the point where either way, you want it to stop being a distraction," Smith said. "You guys know how I feel about this, and it’s the truth."

Smith, 30, has one year left on his contract at $7.5 million.

"You’re finally gonna cross a line where it’s like, it’s just football from here on out and I’m done not only talking about it with you guys, but even behind the scenes as well," Smith said. "We talk about eliminating distractions and that’s a part of it. The focus needs to be on ball."


Chiefs still negotiating with Alex Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Chiefs continue to talk with quarterback Alex Smith's reps about a contract extension, although the sides remain far apart, reports the Kansas City Star. Smith is set to make $7.5 million this season, the final year of his deal.

"They’re working through it so we’ll see what happens," coach Andy Reid said. "These things take (time). You know how the game goes. Alex isn’t worried about it and I’m not not worried about it. We just go play."


Alex Smith hopeful of new deal


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who has one year left on his contract, wants to sign an extension and continue his career in Kansas City, reports the Kansas City Star.

"I'd love to have it done," Smith said. "I love Kansas City, I love the coaching staff, the players. … But when you're talking about this many years and that type of deal, you want it done right. You want both sides happy, and you want it to be something that is going to last and you can play out. A lot of things go into it. With that, there's still plenty of time. I still have a whole year left. And who knows what will happen?"

Smith said his representatives had discussions with Chiefs general manager John Dorsey until this month, when the league goes dormant before camp. Smith is due $7.5 million this year if he doesn't sign an extension.

Smith, acquired from San Francisco in a March 2013 trade, was 11-4 as a starter for the Chiefs last season and led the team to the playoffs a year after they went 2-14, tied for the worst record in the league. He is 30-9-1 as a starter in the last three seasons, having led San Francisco to the NFC championship game in 2011 and helping the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 before coming to Kansas City, where he established career bests with 308 completions, 508 attempts, 3,313 yards and 23 touchdowns with just seven interceptions.


Alex Smith benefits with experience in system


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said quarterback Alex Smith will benefit with another year in his offensive system heading into 2014.

Smith played his first year for Reid in Kansas City in 2013 and passed for 3,313 yards, 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions on 61 percent completions, and he added 431 rushing yards and one touchdown.

"I think it’s two things: I think he's more familiar with all of his receivers, Dwayne (Bowe) included, and he's more familiar with the offense," Reid said Thursday. "They all are. So, you hope that that's the next step that takes place there, where they can all pick their game up even a little bit better than they were last year."


Report: Chiefs prepared to franchise Alex Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) If the Chiefs are unable to work out a contract extension with quarterback Alex Smith, they're willing to slap the franchise tag on him for 2015, reports NFL Network. Smith will earn $7.5 million this season, the last year of his contract.

Andy Reid confident Chiefs will re-sign Alex Smith


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday on NFL Network that he's confident the team will re-sign quarterback Alex Smith

"[T]here's been open communication," Reid said. "I've always believed that if there's open communication, then normally good things happen. So, I'm sure something will get done. I can't put a time frame on that, but I'm sure something will get done."


Chiefs draft Aaron Murray


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2014) With pick No. 163 in the NFL Draft, the Chiefs selected quarterback Aaron Murray from Georgia. Murray is expected to challenge Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray to be the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Alex Smith.

Murray will likely sit for at least a year since Smith is entering the final season of his contract, although don't be suprised if Smith still gets a contract extension in Kansas City. Either way, don't expect Murray to start any time soon barring injury.

Murray finished his career at Georgia by passing for 3,075 yards, 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 11 starts in 2013 before suffering a torn ACL in his left knee against Kentucky. He is the only quarterback in SEC history to throw for more than 3,000 yards in all four seasons and is the conference's career record holder in touchdowns (121) and passing yards (13,166).

His status for the start of training camp is questionable with his knee.

Alex Smith, Chiefs talking extension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said Monday that his agent, Tom Condon, has been in negotiations with the club about a contract extension, reports the Kansas City Star.

"My agent handles all of that, and that's why you hire that guy to take care of that, so you can focus on football," said Smith, who has one year remaining on his contract. "It's really not my place. I have a contract for this year."

Smith, who will earn $7.5 million in 2014, said he has not set a timetable for when he'd like to get a deal done, nor does he feel any insecurity not playing under a long-term contract.

"I've played long enough, going into Year 10 now, it's all year-to-year in my mind anyway at this point," said Smith, who was acquired from San Francisco in a trade in 2013. "You've got to continually prove yourself. I don't think it changes anything as far as my mindset or approach to the game."


Reid likes what he has with Alex Smith


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that quarterback Alex Smith impressed him in their first year together in 2013.

"I loved his accuracy," Reid said. "I love his want to be great. I love the way he took things over and challenged everybody around him. I appreciated his whole game. His approach to the game raised the whole team. He's a gym rate. You've got to kick him out of the building. I was almost on secret double probation his first week in the building because he wanted to stay there forever. I'd have to kick him out. I said, 'You gotta go.'"

Chiefs could sign Alex Smith to contract extension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said the Chiefs have reached out to Smith’s representatives, and an extension could clear some much-needed salary cap room.

Smith is scheduled to make $7.5 million in 2014.


Alex Smith hints at more pass-happy offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) Quarterback Alex Smith suggested the Chiefs will air it out more in 2014, saying the change actually began in the second half of last season.

“It just kind of happened naturally,’ Smith told the Kansas City Star. “I think the defense was playing great for the first half, and we played some good defenses as well.

“It was our first year in the offense, we didn’t turn the ball over, we were opportunistic in the red zone, but yes we didn’t really have the entire playbook at hand, and that’s to be expected in the first year with a lot of new faces," he added. "So as the year went on and we got more comfortable and coach [Andy] Reid got more comfortable with us and his staff, he started to trust us with more and we showed that we could handle it. By the end, I was feeling really good about things.”


Chiefs eager to reach long-term deal with Alex Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) Chiefs chairman Alex Hunt reiterated that signing quarterback Alex Smith to a long-term extension is an offseason priority. Smith has one year left on his deal at $7.5 million.

“When we made the trade for him a year ago, that was part of the thinking," Hunt said, per ESPN.com. "I don’t think that thinking has changed. He came in and did a nice job. We’re glad to have him as a part of the Kansas City Chiefs and we hope it’s longer than a two-year stay."

Smith threw for a career-high 3,313 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 431 yards. He helped Kansas City go from 2-14 to a playoff team.

"Alex is somebody who demonstrated he could play at a pretty high level with the 49ers the last several years," Hunt told the website. "Certainly we were hopeful we would see that version of him. One of the things I enjoyed about the season was watching him get better as we went along, which makes sense. Andy [Reid's] offense is pretty complicated, even for someone as bright as Alex. But the longer he played in it, the longer the rest of the team was in this offense, you could see him getting better. I think it’s very exciting for 2014 to see where that offense goes."

Alex Smith laments missed opportunity


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who threw four touchdown passes without an interception in the playoff loss at Indianapolis, tried to sum up his first season in Kansas City.

“It’s tough and certainly looking at it, any time you can go from two wins and then making the playoffs, you have something to feel good about there, the turnaround that we had," Smith told the team's website. "That’s the first time together with the staff. Still though, when we get these opportunities, you don’t know how often they come or when the next one is going to be and you just try to go and make the most of it, but unfortunately for us, we just did not get it done."
