Chiefs Sign CB Sean Smith

Update:

Sean Smith‘s agent, David Canter, tweets that his client has just reached an agreement with the Kansas City Chiefs on a three-year deal.

Albert Breer reports that Smith receives three-year deal worth $18 million an includes $11 million guaranteed.

Kansas City has had an extremely busy offseason thus far. They’ve already signed Dunta Robinson, who’s expected to play safety, and also grabbed DE Mike DeVito.

The Raiders were also reportedly in on Smith, with the Dolphins dropping out of the running for him.

We’ll have more as the information becomes available.

We had Smith listed as the No. 13 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

Update:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Kansas City Chiefs are pursuing free-agent CB Sean Smith.

Schefter adds that the Chiefs are a “viable option” for Smith at this point in time.

The market has been sluggish at best for Smith thus far. Many expected him to be among the most sought after free agents, but recent reports have indicated that the Eagles and 49ers are no longer options.

The Dolphins and Buccaneers could also be options.

——————–

Dolphins CB Sean Smith was reportedly headed for a very active market, but that hasn’t proved to be the case after the first few days of free agency.

  • Geoff Mosher reports that the Eagles are out of the running for free agent CB Sean Smith.
  • Matt Maiocco has been informed that the 49ers are not involved in the competition for Smith.

The Eagles did sign former Rams CB Bradley Fletcher in recent days, but haven’t been very active beyond that. They could be shopping for bargains from this point on or intend to address their other cornerback spot in the draft.

San Francisco is meeting with free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha on Thursday and there’s reportedly mutual interest from both sides. Smith also seemed like an option for the 49ers given that they’re believed to be targeting a larger cornerback, but apparently that’s not the case.

The Dolphins reportedly would like to retain Smith, but they’ve said that they have no intention of overpaying for him. The Buccaneers could use another cornerback, so they too could be an option.
