Alex Smith traded to Chiefs

Alex Smith was the first overall pick of 2005 draft, but struggled to find success in San Francisco until the 2011 season, when he led his team the NFC championship game under first-year head coach Jim Harbaugh.

The 49ers have dealt Smith to the Chiefs but that the deal cannot be officially completed until March 12, when the new league year begins.

49ers look to trade Alex Smith; Chiefs, Cardinals loom as possible destinations

As San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh was trying to sell reporters on the idea that the 49ers could keep quarterback Alex Smith, other members of his organization were quite clear about what is going to happen to Smith as they prepared to sign players.

Smith is going to get traded and probably sooner than later.
