Chiefs want to trade down. They and Alex both know they need him and would be foolish to throw away the success they have to build on right now. With a mediocre support cast outside of Jamaal Charles, even a little addition to their offensive arsenal would seem to give them a monstrous boost in offensive potential.
Even without Charles for an entire game, and in the playoffs, Smith carved apart Indianpolis with a rookie and 3rd string RBs out there. Solidify their defensive depth, get Smith locked down for the future out there, and add a couple weapons on offense, and you've got a dangerous team, capable of supplanting Denver at the top. I hope they learned from Seattle's blueprint how to beat Manning.
Especially since Denver has, what, 2 more years with Manning at most? KC's window should open much wider once Peyton retires if they build around their current core group, including Alex.
EDIT: I'll also LMAO @ the Chiefs if they let Alex walk in FA next year, Peyton retires, and the Broncos sign him and he goes on to beat the Chiefs w/ the Broncos in 2015. That scenario would be pure poetry.
