    Need final details but seems like a smart move by the Redskins.

    Cousins will get a "mega-deal" from a team that will have mega-regrets later.

    IMO, it was obvious the Chiefs had to trade Smith and give the ball to Mahomes.

    The trade itself isn't a bad trade. Washington gets a QB seeing as they're probably losing Cousins, KC gets value and moves on the the Mahomes era. What's terrible is the contract Washington gave Alex Smith. Paying him like a top 5 QB for 4 years. Makes literally no sense. Good luck with that Washington

    And getting a 2nd rounder (maybe more) + $17M instant savings is a nice way to start it.

    Edit: Was about to post that it made sense for both teams but just saw Smith's extension. Nuts.

    Why include Fuller?

    D.J. Swearinger blasts Redskins for trading 'best defender' Kendall Fuller

    Washington Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger made it clear via social media that he did not like losing cornerback Kendall Fuller as part of the trade for quarterback Alex Smith.

    A number of teammates expressed their support for Fuller on Twitter after the Redskins traded him to the Kansas City Chiefs, along with a third-round pick, for Smith. They voiced support for Fuller, with many even saying privately after the season that he had the best year of anyone in the secondary.

    Swearinger, though, took it one step further. His initial comments after the trade stemmed from wondering whether it was a joke to a three-word tweet: "This is unbelievable." His opinions grew harsher after he woke up Wednesday.

    It started with a tweet that read, "Never Saw Any Bulls--- Like This In My Life!! Idc who i rub wrong because you never sat in a meeting nor put in work with my dawg!! People say they wanna win right but you throw away your best defender!?!? Somebody you can set a standard with?!?! #Defense will win championships!!" A short time later, he tweeted that the Redskins took a "Major Step down from the best slot corner in The Game!!"

    Swearinger later deleted both tweets.​

    For the life of me, I cannot understand this move from the Washington perspective.
