"Everywhere I go in Indianapolis, I hear someone say that the Alex Smith-to-Kansas City Chiefs deal is all but done. (Now CBS is reporting a deal is "effectively done" for Smith, but won't name the team.) Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said it's "not us" who has a deal in place in a text to the Florida Times-Union. NFL.com's Albert Breer reported a high-ranking San Francisco 49ers source says he's not aware of a deal being done. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport says the Chiefs have showed the most interest. Mr. RapSheet also hears the Chiefs are particularly high on tackle Luke Joeckel as a No. 1 overall pick candidate."
Trades can be made until the league season officially opens on March 12
"Kansas City Chiefs have agreed in principle to acquire 49ers QB Alex Smith as I have been reporting all week."

makes sense & Andy Reid could probably get the most out of him. The price is unclear, but pick #63 (top of 3rd round) plus perhaps a conditional pick based on performance doesn't seem out of line
