Now I know what a lot of you are probably thinking… Alex Smith plays quarterback, not tight end. Well obviously this is a different one. In fact, Alex Smith has been in the league longer than the Chiefs’ quarterback, but could provide just what the KC Chiefs are looking for in their second tight end spot.

Smith isn’t an elite tight end by any means obviously, or he’d be signed with a team right now. He’s bounced around in the league, starting his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he spent four years and had over 1,200 yards receiving. Smith had 11 touchdowns during his Buccaneer days.

After that, he spent one season with the Philadelphia Eagles and did not have a good season there to say the least. He then joined the Cleveland Browns and played there for three years. Smith was a disappointment in Cleveland, only putting up 184 yards receiving. The last team he played for is the Cincinnati Bengals, where he put up 12 yards and only one touchdown.

Now the stats from the Ohio teams aren’t impressive, but the Chiefs wouldn’t need Smith to go out there and be the number one tight end. They have a great starting tight end in Kelce, and Smith has the experience to fill in when necessary. We all know how the quarterback Alex Smith likes his tight ends.

Alex Smith to Alex Smith. Touchdown. Maybe we’ll see this in 2015.
