The 49ers and the Chiefs came to an agreement on Wednesday to exchange Alex Smith for a 2nd round draft pick (34th overall) in 2013 and a conditional draft pick in 2014. Here are some reactions from his soon to be former teammates via Twitter:
OT Joe Staley was with Smith throughout his entire six-year career. He remained the LT in that timeframe.
