Not content with being overshadowed by (yet another) New England Patriots Super Bowl, the National Football League offseason got off to a roaring start last night with a huge trade - former first overall pick Alex Smith going to the Washington Redskins. Cousins has played the last two seasons under an increasingly expensive franchise tag, and Washington has avoided making a decision on whether to sign him for the long term.
And yet, Tuesday night brought with it one of the most exciting recent trades we've seen.

Foles labeled Smith as a player who "can turn a locker room around", calling him "one of the most athletic guys" in the NFL. Washington let Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson walk in free agency, hurting Cousins' numbers a bit. A number of teams, including the Jets, Broncos, Browns, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bills etc. are all potential landing spots.
