New quarterback Alex Smith says he's 'jacked' to be joining Washington | The Salt Lake Tribune

"I would be lying if I said the wife and I have not been scoping out the area on Google Maps," Smith said Thursday on the Murph & Mac podcast on KBNR radio (San Francisco).

"I'm jacked. I'm really excited. Once I found out that things in Kansas City were going in a different direction, I was pumped at the opportunity, and when Washington came calling I was hopeful that that was a possible destination, and I'm just jacked that it worked out. They wanted me because the feeling was mutual, and I'm looking forward to it."

Where will Kirk Cousins land?

The Washington Redskins already have landed their replacement for quarterback Kirk Cousins by agreeing to trade a third-round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller to the Kansas City Chiefs for Alex Smith. The Redskins reportedly are considering franchise-tagging Cousins in order to trade him, but that would be highly problematic without Cousins’s cooperation on a new contract with his next team. If he hits the unrestricted free agent market March 14 unburdened by the franchise tag, he could choose from a group of bidders that could include the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals and maybe the Jacksonville Jaguars and Minnesota Vikings.
