    • Alex Smith Speaks - 'I'm jacked, I'm really excited!'

      Alex Smith was interviewed on KNBR 680 in KC on Thursday. Here's some word on what he had to say about his recent trade to the Redskins.


      Alex Smith is the Washington Redskins newest starting quarterback, and he's already looking forward to the experience.

      The 33-year-old was back home in San Francisco on Thursday, and made an appearance on KNBR 680 to talk all things offseason, including the trade that saw him swap the AFC West for the NFC East. After the Chiefs made it clear that they viewed Patrick Mahomes III as the future of the franchise, it's needless to say that Smith was ready to jump at the opportunity of becoming the Redskins' starting quarterback.

      "I'm jacked. I'm really excited," Smith said. "Once I found out that things in Kansas City were going in a different direction, I was pumped at the opportunity and when Washington came calling I was hopeful that was a possible destination and I'm just jacked that it worked out and that they wanted me because the feelings were mutual and I'm looking forward to it."

      Smith will enjoy a reunion with former teammate Vernon Davis when he suits up in D.C. next season, as the duo played together with the 49ers for six season after being draft one year apart in 2005 and 2006 respectively. In fact, the 34-year-old tight end was one of the first to reach out when news of the trade first leaked.

      "[Davis] was one of the first guys when [the news] broke that hit me up on the phone," Smith said. "I'm excited."

      Some have scoffed at the idea of the Redskins signing Smith to a lengthy contract extension. At nearly 34 years old, Smith's four-year, $94 million deal represents a huge commitment to an aging quarterback, but the former no. 1 overall pick believes he still has plenty in the tank. So much so that he's not yet able to see the sunset he'll eventually walk into.

      "I feel amazing, I feel great," Smith ensured. "I feel like the last five or six years have flown by. I've had more fun than I've ever had playing the game. The challenge of it, my body feels great, so yeah, I do feel like I can't see the horizon at this point. People keep asking me that and I don't see it in the near future. Obviously things change, but I'm just loving what I'm doing too much and the challenge of it. I still haven't gotten [to the Super Bowl] obviously and you're after that big one, right? You're trying to do whatever you can and figure it out and find the answer."
