Chiefs QB Smith named to Pro Bowl squad, replaces Chargers' Rivers

Chiefs QB Smith named to Pro Bowl squad, replaces Chargers' Rivers

The Cleveland Browns are widely expected to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft, but we all saw where starting a rookie under center got them this season. Since being acquired by Kansas City back in February 2013, Smith has made the franchise a constant in the National Football League playoffs with appearances in four out of the first five seasons including the last three years. Cleveland has a ton of cap space and can splurge at quarterback, where Smith carries a $20.9 million cap hit for 2018. Whether they stick with DeShone Kizer or draft a player like Josh Rosen, the Browns need to add a veteran QB to the mix.

The 33-year-old Smith set career highs in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7) during the 2017 season.

Browns reporter Pat McManamon expects the Browns to have interest in acquiring Alex Smith this offseason. He also finished the year third with a 67.5 percent completion rate, eighth in passing yards, and ninth in touchdown passes.

His first appearance was in 2013 which came at the end of his first year in Kansas City.

The Chiefs traded up in the draft past year to get Patrick Mahomes, so they are likely going to turn things over to him this offseason.

Despite all of that, Smith's future with the Chiefs beyond the 2017 season has been heavily discussed for the last several months.
