Trading Smith now frees up a $17 million chunk of cap space for the Chiefs heading into the offseason.
UPDATE: The Redskins have already agreed to a four-year, $94 million contract extension with Alex Smith. The club also dealt their fifth-round pick to Cleveland for offensive lineman Cameron Erving and their seventh-round pick for cornerback Kenneth Acker. Cousins was essentially saying he would be willing to play for a team that can compete over a team that can pay him the most money in free agency.
How does Alex Smith fit? Some of those deals would have to be re-configured or put to the side if Minnesota is serious about signing Cousins.
He's a smart quarterback, has a very good arm, accurate, and is a leader of men.
The numbers in Smith's extension, while impressive, still likely offer Washington significant savings vs. bidding for Kirk Cousins on the open market, where he'll now likely command the richest contract in National Football League history.

Ajinkya Rahane, who was not included in the playing XI in the last two tests, returned to the side along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar . Prior to that occurring, South Africa were set a target of 241 to win, but lost opener Aiden Markram early on in their chase.
The Redskins had the option of either franchise tagging Cousins again - this time for $34.5m - or committing to a long-term deal. Smith had one year remaining on a four-year, $68m extension he signed in September 2014. That's plenty for a team that needs only a few pieces and better injury luck to make a playoff run in 2018.
Cousins probably will not mourn the end of his six-year tenure in the nation's capital. No matter where he does, expect him to be PAID. Here's what his former general manager Scot McCloughan had to say about Cousins in a recent interview with 104.3 The Fan in Denver... Time will only tell to see how this all plays out.
There is hope that this offseason, the New York Jets finally address their quarterback situation. Later, Adam Schefter of ESPN confirmed on twitter the details of the trade "In Alex Smith trade, Chiefs will receive third-round pick And CB Kendall Fuller".
As happy as the Redskins should be after this move, Cousins will be even happier.
Fuller was taken by the Redskins in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns, Broncos, Giants, Bills and Jaguars have all been reported to be interested in making a move, and it now appears as if he will go to the highest bidder for the 2018 campaign. They won't be the only team.

That's not going to change. " Referees have to protect, not just mine, all players". "Always I encourage him to think first". But the Community Shield? "We will see [Sane's injury] tomorrow, he could be out for two, three, four weeks".
Monero, IOTA and Cardano were also impacted - since Monday, they have declined in price by 35%, 22% and 21%, respectively. If one could get ahead of the news cycle somehow, they might be able to make an accurate Ripple price forecast.
