The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to let Smith join Washington. The deal is an exchange for Smith, who is 33 and plays as quarterback, with Fuller who is a cornerback.

Smith is excited about the new opportunity with the Washington Redskins. The quarterback joined Kansas City from San Francisco 49ers in 2012. During the time, Smith has assisted Kansas City to playoffs in 4 of 5 seasons he has played, and the Redskins are banking on the Smith’s experience to reach playoffs again in the upcoming season. The Redskins have not made it to the playoffs since 2015.
