Quarterback Alex Smith has a new home, as sources tell The Star that the Chiefs have reached agreement to trade their veteran starter of the last five seasons to Washington.

The Chiefs will receive a 2018 third-round pick and promising young cornerback Kendall Fuller in exchange, a source confirmed, though any trade involving Smith can’t be completed until the first day of the new league year, which begins at 3 p.m. on March 14. But the sources say the deal is in place and will definitely proceed.

Fuller, 22, was a third-round pick for Washington in 2016. He’s coming off a season in which he recorded 55 tackles, 10 passes defensed and four interceptions and emerged as one of the NFL’s best slot defenders.

Of course the Internet had jokes about Fuller’s situation.

Fuller was a good sport about the whole thing after he learned he was traded.

Life comes at you fast.
