Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me out. I am trying to find out if there were ever any reports that the Cardinals were hot on Alex Smith when he was made available? Did they get in a bidding war with the Chiefs? Some people seem to think it was the Cardinals that were involved but I don't remember hearing about them jumping into the mix. Were there ever any reports they offered their second round pick (#3Cool and/or more pick (maybe a 2014 pick)? Personally I think the Chiefs were basically bidding against themselves but am trying to get reports on whether they ever made a serious push and forced the Chiefs to cough up their second round pick.

There were reports that we were interested but we were exploring all the options this off season. I'm glad we went a different direction though (Palmer). Smith doesn't really fit out offense at all.

Yeah, I am sure that Arizona kicked the tires. I am wondering if they made a hard offer that forced the Chiefs to sweeten their offer.

There is a Cardinal poster in here that knows someone in the Arizona front office, right? Is there anyway he could ask his contact if they "hypothetically" speaking IF the Cardinals would have made an offer, they would have "quite" possibly "strongly" considered offering their second round pick? LOL

He's no longer posting but no I don't think we made a hard offer. I really doubt we would have offered a 2nd round pick. Arians is VERY committed to the vertical passing game and a blind person could see Smith just doesn't fit that system. Sorry to say but I do think the Chiefs kind of bid against themselves a bit. I do think Alex Smith is a good fit in Reid's offense though so I don't think you guys got robbed.
