Smith was officially traded from the Chiefs to the Redskins on Wednesday in exchange for cornerback Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft pick.

With Patrick Mahomes taking over as the starting quarterback in Kansas City, the 33-year-old Smith actually ended up with a pretty favorable deal, joining a Washington franchise that plans to sign him to a four-year, $94 million contract extension that includes $70 million guaranteed. It isn't out of the question that Smith approaches his career-best stat line from last season in 2018, as the Redskins offense is directed by head coach Jay Gruden and features a deep group of pass catchers including Jamison Crowder, the newly signed Paul Richardson, Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed (hamstring/toe), Vernon Davis and Chris Thompson (leg), along with a stud left tackle (Trent Williams) to protect the quarterback's blindside. The terms of the contract suggests that Washington's brass doesn't view Smith as a major downgrade from Kirk Cousins.
