Alex Smith's mother says that the quarterback's move to the Kansas City Chiefs is an exciting opportunity.
Alex Smith's mother has said that she is excited about her son's move to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs have agreed a trade with the San Francisco 49ers for the quarterback, but the 28-year-old cannot discuss the deal publicly until the new league year starts on March 12.
However, Pam Smith told the Kansas City Star: "From my perspective, we're very excited about it.
"We're very excited about the opportunity, the situation, the coach. Andy Reid is an offensive-minded quarterback coach, and so well-respected and well-thought of, so we're really excited about that."
Smith lost his role as starter to Colin Kaepernick during the 2012 NFL season following a concussion.
