Chiefs Owner Clark Hunt Says They Didn’t Want to Trade Alex Smith to Denver

It’s unclear whether the Broncos made an attempt to acquire quarterback Alex Smith in a trade from Kansas City, but they wouldn’t have got far if they did.

Chiefs owner Clark Hunt told Mike Klis of 9News in Denver Saturday he couldn’t discuss who was involved in the Smith trade because “no NFL trade is official until we get to March.’’

But in a follow-up question, Hunt was asked if it was unlikely the Chiefs would have dealt their veteran quarterback to the AFC West rival Broncos.

“I think it’s pretty typical in the NFL not to seek trades within the division,’’ Hunt said during his red-carpet appearance prior to the NFL’s Honors show. “That’s pretty standard fare particularly when we’re talking about a high-profile player.’’

Smith wound up going to Washington for a second-round draft pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller. The trade will become official March 14, the first day of the 2018 league year.
