The Stack joins you this Thursday with a couple of things to talk about, not too much though. No need to overwhelm. Let’s get right to it and see what made “the stack” for today, Thursday, February 28:
Alex Smith traded to Kansas City
The NFL year doesn’t start until March 12, but when it does, one trade will become official quickly. The San Francisco 49ers traded quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs for a second round pick in this year’s draft and a conditional pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Smith’s career turned around when Jim Harbaugh came two years ago and he was playing really well this year prior to his concussion that saw him lose his job to Colin Kaepernick who has since become a star. The Chiefs are getting a good quarterback, but the strange thing is is that Smith was probably the only real option out there. Where else would the Chiefs have gone? They tried to get Nick Foles from the Philadelphia Eagles, but that really didn’t look like it was going to happen. When Michael Vick went off the market, then there weren’t any other decent options out there.
