How will the Alex Smith trade affect the Vikings' offseason plans?

Alex Smith not thrilled about any potential trade to Cleveland

With the trade of starting quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins, the Chiefs shocked pretty much anyone and everyone, including the players who once called Smith a teammate only a few days ago.

Fuller was a third-round pick by Washington in 2016, and went on to have an outstanding 2017 season which included four interceptions. Immediately viewed as a puzzling move for a Washington team that seems to be content treading water, it will undoubtedly become one of the most polarizing deals of the offseason.

Johnson also tied his career-high with 10 rebounds, adding four assists, two steals, one block, one triple and four turnovers. Following x-rays, it was released that he suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand fifth metacarpal.

The quarterback situation for the Cleveland Browns got a little bit clearer Tuesday night. Just drafting one. Colt McCoy probably gets you 4-5 wins, and you have a Top 7 pick. There were speculations Washington will franchise tag the 29-year-old quarterback for the third time, but it is now confirmed the parties have agreed to go into different directions, ESPN reported.

Even *Fuller* refused to believe it, and for good reason. His absence could have an impact on his level of effectiveness next season as he adjusts to playing alongside second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes II. He has started to hire his own staff in Eliot Wolf as assistant GM, who worked with Dorsey in Green Bay, and Alonzo Highsmith, who also worked with Dorsey in Green Bay, as hired to the same position and will be calling the plays in 2018.

Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back against West Brom in the FA Cup after a defeat to Swansea ended an 18-game unbeaten run.

Before he was traded to Washington, the veteran quarterback was looked at as a possible candidate to be the Minnesota Vikings starter next season. Tilford forced four fumbles and recovered three of them. Perhaps they can find another weapon for Mahomes.

Smith $23.5 million average salary per year would rank sixth among QBs based on last year's figures, according to OverTheCap.com. Kansas City was approximately $10 million over the cap before the trade, so this is significant for the organization's financial flexibility heading into the offseason. Bashaud Breeland has been likely to leave for free agency since the start of the new year, and without Fuller, that leaves Josh Norman, Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau, and Joshua Holsey. Washington couldn't agree on a long-term contract with a quarterback it drafted and groomed for six seasons, but pending details of the contract structure, it gave Smith what appears to be the third-largest guarantee in National Football League history. But for the Chiefs, we can confidently say right now that they struck gold. There are plenty of teams with talent that can match the Kansas City Chiefs but are struggling to find consistency at quarterback.

Laporte will be a Man City player on Monday
I want to thank you for all you have given me. "Here I leave a unique, different club, and one I will never forget". The player has been spotted sitting in the stands, enhancing suggestions that move to City is now close.

Buffalo used a fifth round pick on Nathan Peterman previous year and, for some ridiculous reason, made him the starter over Tyrod Taylor during the regular season.
