Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: Despite Alex Smith, Kansas City Chiefs May Be Interested

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 03/01/13 11:31AM EST

The Kansas City Chiefs may have just agreed to a trade with the San Francisco 49ers to get quarterback Alex Smith, but they may not be done dealing just yet. Even though Alex Smith will clearly be the opening day starter in Kansas City, they are still in need of a backup in case Smith gets hurt. Because of that, rumors are now circulating that Chiefs coach Andy Reid may be interested in Tim Tebow.

Alex Smith lost his starting job in San Francisco due to injury. He may not be injury-prone, but he certainly is no stranger to being sidelined. If that happens, the Kansas City Chiefs desperately need a backup quarterback that will fit their scheme. Tim Tebow could be the perfect quarterback to come into KC and back him up.

The Chiefs cannot expect Alex Smith to throw the football 40 times a game. In fact, they would do best if they built their offense around a running game and let Smith become a game manager. Tim Tebow may not be able to make all of the throws, but he is more than capable of becoming a game manager.

Another problem with the Kansas City Chiefs is their inability to sell tickets and spark interest among the fan base. Kansas City was not very excited to hear that their team traded for Alex Smith, but trading for Tim Tebow would almost certainly help the team sell some tickets.

Not only does a Tim Tebow to the Kansas City Chiefs trade make sense, it would also be risk-free for Andy Reid. The New York Jets do not want anything to do with Tebow which means the Chiefs will be able to get him for a very low draft pick. KC could probably get him for a seventh or sixth round draft pick.

Should the Chiefs go after Tim Tebow? Let us know your thoughts in a comment below.
