Chiefs QB Alex Smith said that he does not think the team is committed to him after drafting Patrick Mahomes with the No. 10 overall pick. “I think [the Chiefs are] committed to me [only] through this year,” Smith said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. “That’s just the nature of it. If you don’t go out there and perform, I mean, coach [Andy] Reid and [quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy] are very honest. You’ve got to go out there and do your deal. We all have to. “Whether or not we drafted Patrick, it doesn’t change that, right? If you’re not good enough and didn’t get it done, you’re not going to be around long. That’s just our culture. I know it. That’s the nature of the position.” Kansas City moving on from Smith doesn’t come as much of a surprise after trading up to draft Mahomes. Chiefs HC Andy Reid also said recently that Smith would be willing to help Mahomes, but also admitted there’s a “catch 22” for Smith.
