The trade for quarterback Alex Smith might take another year or more to adequately assess, but at least for their part, the Chiefs may not feel the need to wait. Quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy came close to calling it a success after practice Thursday.
"He's been everything that we thought he was," Nagy said of Smith. "He's a true professional. He's in his (playbook) every day. He's always asking questions, trying to get better. He's being a leader for the other (quarterbacks) as well."
Smith has the potential to be a solid fantasy QB2 and could be used in a "streaming QBs" strategy during the season.
