KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It hasn’t taken long for Alex Smith to become the leader of the Kansas City Chiefs.
The weight of the franchise was foisted upon his shoulders from the very second word leaked out that former No. 1 draft pick would be sent from the San Francisco 49ers to the Chiefs during a topsy-turvy offseason.
If he wasn’t considered the leader in the huddle then, he certainly is now, as the Chiefs toil away in summer-like heat during the first full week of voluntary practices.
A quick survey of his teammates will confirm it.
