On a serious note and ignoring the usual anti Smith crud from the usual anti Smith posters, I have difficulty with this one. The Chiefs are not great at drafting quarterbacks (and this is being incredibly polite, check out their draft record). Are they seriously trying to get anyone to believe that they can not only produce, against all odds, an NFL-quality qb in the draft, but that they can also get him ready to start by 2015?
The Chiefs? Like, Alex's agent is going to have difficulty keeping a straight face on this one.
How many QB's has the current administration there drafted? Because nothing else that happened before then matters anymore. The notion that teams are "good" at this or "bad" at that is usually pretty fluid depending on who is in charge at any given moment. The only real exception to this is teams with overly involved owners such as Al Davis with the Raiders and Jerry Jones with the Cowboys.
I would normally agree with you. But….. name me the last starting quarterback of any ability drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs. In their franchise history.

"But a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the discussions are moving very, very slowly."
Ian rapaport also reported it.
Don't you people get it yet? These lazy lamers make stuff up based on gossip and other lazy lamers read and then repeat in their columns. Then someone like you can say "Ian Rapaport also reported it." So what? It's beyond me that some people still believe what they read in places like PFT until they see it happen with their own eyes.
Not even a story to me. The more money that's involved, the more difficult it is to negotiate a new deal. Drew Brees had a difficult time negotiating an extension with the Saints, and that was AFTER he won them a SB. Nobody knows what Alex wants, nobody knows what the Chiefs want. They'll meet somewhere in the middle and get a deal done, like everyone else.
