A thank you to Alex Smith

  • Alex Smith News, Stats, Photos | Kansas City Chiefs - SB Nation

This deal opens up so many opportunities for Kansas City, while also making it clear to Patrick Mahomes that this is his team and the front office is working hard to surround him with talent. He has been the Chiefs' starting quarterback the last five seasons, including four playoff appearances.

The situation in Cleveland didn't seem to fit the Smith scenario as they hold the number one and the number four picks in the draft this year which undoubtedly one will be earmarked for a quarterback. Kirk Cousins is all but officially done in Washington.

Of course, this move is as much a sign of how confident Kansas City is in their young gun Mahomes, and after seeing some of the stuff he's capable of in his first regular season start in Denver back in week 17, it's easy to see why they are so confident. Because of the leaguewide interest in the Chiefs quarterback, Washington handsomely overpaid Kansas City for the right to then overpay Smith through age 38.

But that was not the case Monday on the Dan Patrick Show, when Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith joined the guys in the studio.

Thankfully, these requirements are account-wide, helping Alliance players unlock the Horde races fairly easily and vice versa. Players will gain access to two mounts: the Seabraid Stallion for the Alliance and the Gilded Ravasaur for the Horde .

Until that happens, the West is up for grabs. Smith will receive $71 million guaranteed.

There is still no word, however, on whether or not Browns general manager John Dorsey went home at 5 p.m. and missed out on trading for a quarterback that he worked with while in Kansas City.

As awesome as it would be for the Denver Broncos to pursue and potentially even be the favorites to sign Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, there are significant hurdles in the way yet.

In 2017, playing on his second franchise tag with the Redskins, Cousins earned about $23.9 million.

EasyJet chief cuts salary as airline reveals 52% gender pay gap
Mr Lundgren's starting annual salary was £740,000, while Ms McCall was on £706,000 when she left the budget airline in November. The airline has a 2020/20 target where 20 percent of new pilots will be women by 2020, up from 6 percent in 2015.

Washington will own 13th-overall spot in April's draft. It can't be complete until 3 pm on March 14, so assuming paperwork hasn't been submitted, and it's not a binding contract, Washington has six weeks to re-think this.

"NBC's Pro Football Talk: "(The Jets) need a franchise quarterback (they haven't had one since Joe Namath), and they have the cash and cap space to bring him to town. It's probably safe to assume that new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll would love to get his hands on Cousins.

Provided the Broncos or the Jets land Cousins, and considering the Redskins now have a desire to recoup some draft losses via trade, some teams may want to jump into that No. 13 slot.

Interestingly, the the deal Washington gave to Smith is the type of deal they were unwilling or unable to give to current quarterback Kirk Cousins, who will be seeking another team when he becomes an unrestricted free agent in March. While he had arguably the best season of his career, he may have played for a job next season.

Also in attendance alongside Emmert and Redmond was legal expert Wendy Murphy, according to the website. Emmert made the comments in an email to the NCAA Board of Governors and other university presidents.

It may have taken Alex Smith this long to finally have a break out year but in 2017 he looked like the real deal.
