LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va – The breaking news everyone was talking about on Tuesday night: the Washington Redskins have a new quarterback. The Skins have agreed in principle to a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs for quarterback Alex Smith.
For hours, rumors were circulating around sporting news outlets on the terms of the deal. The most popular prognostications of the trade were Smith to the Redskins for a third round pick in 2018 and defensive back Kendall Fuller. Which was news to us all, especially Fuller.
After reading what Fuller wrote on Twitter, fans started to question what they were hearing from the media. It appeared the Redskins had not even made a phone call to Fuller about any trade. Even Fuller’s teammates were confused.
Then someone finally confirmed the information of the deal to Fuller himself.
When the dust settled, in principle, the trade is: Smith to the Redskins and Fuller plus a third round pick in 2018 to the Chiefs. If this trade goes on as planned, the future of Kirk Cousins will not be in burgundy and gold. Fuller’s future seems to be bright as he adds to the second best passing defense in 2017.
