Chiefs looking to extend Alex Smith

Smith will probably get 10-13 mil a year range. I doubt he gets any less. Too many other qb's getting that kind of salary.

Chiefs can have him. We have the Kapster.

no way he gets a 6-8 year contract..thats Salary cap death

3 to 5 years tops

I could see him getting a 6-year deal at the most. 7 or 8 would be pushing it obviously. It's really only salary cap death if there is a ton of guaranteed money involved, if not, you could always cut ties without a huge financial burden. He's definitely going to get more than a 3 year deal IMO.

It's the right move for the Chiefs IMO. And it's good for Alex too. Good for him.
Good for Alex. He had a VERY good year and he deserves some loot based on what some of his peers are making.
They gonna offer him a three year deal and find a real franchise qb in that time frame.

good for him, happy for the guy
Good for him, they should also fire their DC.

PYMWYMI I bet the deal is more than 3 years.
Smith gave Andy Reid the big game performance McNabb and Vick were never able to do. Based on what other top 10 QBs are making, he should get something in the $17+million range for 5-6 years. However, based on Smith's past willingness to take less than market value in order for the team to sign other important players, and the fact he has already pocketed something north of $30MILLION in the past, it would not surprise me to see him accept a $13-15MILLION/yr deal for 5 years and an option plus incentives.

Except for an unheard of number of key injuries in a single game, Smith played well enough to be playing again this Sunday. From Clark Hunt on down, the Chiefs realize how close they are and are not going to hard ball Smith into a low number that would send a disturbing message to other young Chief players that will be coming up for new contracts in the next year or two.

Name your price ?
Figured they would extend him, but I would be a little disappointed if Alex signs a huge deal. Give him a few guaranteed years for sure, but I do hope he takes it easy on the KC salary cap. He's already got the money, and is obviously smart enough to know that taking more means KC can add or keep less quality talent around him. He's always been about winning, so taking a huge chunk from the salary cap will only lessen their overall team talent (derp).
