Chiefs to offer Alex Smith extension

Published Add your comment

The Kansas City Chiefs will try to extend Alex Smith's contract this offseason, Jason Cole revealed today.

Smith, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, helped the Chiefs win 11 games this season in a dramatic turn around in the teams fortunes.

In 2012, the Chiefs won just two games, the worst in the league but under new coach Andy Reid and his new quarterback, Kansas City are back on the road to success. 

In the last year of his current deal, Smith will be paid $7.5 million with no bonuses, a relatively cheap amount considering the level that Smith has improved the team to.

Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears has recently signed a new $126.7 million contract for seven years and Joe Flacco last year signed a $120.6 million six-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens.

Smith's value is unlikely to rise to those levels but it would appear that the former University of Utah man is to gain financially from the Chiefs' improved play.

Last season Smith set career highs in total yards and touchdown passes.
