KANSAS CITY, Mo. Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is on the move, the Kansas City Star reports.
The newspaper Tuesday evening says sources tell them the Chiefs have reached an agreement to trade the veteran quarterback to the Washington Redskins.
The Star reports the deal can't be completed until March 14 -- the first day of the new league year -- but says sources say "the deal is in place and will proceed."
Smith, 33, set career highs in passing yards, touchdowns and passer rating this past season on his way to a Pro Bowl appearance.
Barring further moves at the quarterback position, Patrick Mahomes is expected to start under center for Kansas City next season.
