Report: 49ers have agreed to send Alex Smith to KC

With nearly two weeks before it can be done, the Alex Smith deal is apparently done.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX, the 49ers “have completed a trade with the Chiefs” for quarterback Alex Smith.

Glazer notes the time lag before it can be official, but said the Chiefs “really made a commitment to Smith.”

The Chiefs apparently have their quarterback now, but they paid a handsome price for him.

According to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers will get a second-round pick this year and “a similar pick 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.
