Andy Reid: Alex Smith 'was the greatest thing that ever happened to Patrick Mahomes'

Shortly after quarterback Alex Smith retired from playing in the spring of 2021, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid remarked he'd love to have Smith on his staff.

Smith was also serving as Kansas City's QB1 when the club selected Patrick Mahomes in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, a decision that worked out well for Reid and company but also sparked the beginning of the end of Smith's time with the franchise.
