    Florio: Alex Smith trade could fall through

    Florio is reporting that the deal could be rescinded if the Redskins do decide to franchise tag Cousins, and Smith could decide he would be better served going elsewhere.

    One thing about these Redskins.......things will never change.

    When the information robots began to simultaneously declare that the Chiefs had traded quarterback Alex Smith to Washington, the more accurate characterization was that the two teams and Smith had struck tentative deals both to trade Smith and to extend his contract.

    Even now, more than a week later, either the trade or the contract extension can fall through, since the trade canít happen until March 14. And if the football-following world learned anything in the aftermath of the Josh McDaniels situation, itís that nothing is done until itís actually done.

    It remains unlikely that the Smith deal will fall through, but it still could. Especially if Washington continues to flirt with the stupid notion of applying the franchise tag to quarterback Kirk Cousins. If they go through with it ó and if Cousins were to sign the one-year tender, putting him under contract for one year at $34.47 million ó Smith could instantly lose interest in joining a team that potentially will be stuck with Cousins and an untradeable one-year contract.

    Also, if Washington decides to play a game of chess/chicken with Cousins and loses, Washington may independently decide to keep Cousins for a year, canceling the trade and explaining to the Chiefs and Smith that circumstances unexpectedly changed.

    Either way, the McDaniels incident should remind everyone that, until these deals are officially done, anything can happen. And, sometimes, anything does.

    I'm sure they take ad money from much less reputable organizations which is the sad part.

    I think Florio just says things to fill air time, he has a 2 hour show.

    The deal will not fall through.

    Also, people who refuse to say redskins generally seem to have a grudge against the team for being insensitive and try to paint them in a negative light when given the chance. Bruce and Dan give them plenty of opportunity.
