(Yahoo! Sports) – Kansas City coach Andy Reid is confident his organization will figure out a way to lock up quarterback Alex Smith.

Honestly, it is not like the Chiefs really have a choice.

San Francisco traded Smith to Kansas City for a second-round pick in 2013 and a conditional pick in 2014 that became a second-rounder once the Chiefs won eight games last season. The 49ers were ultimately able to obtain five players from that trade. It ended up being a great transaction for San Francisco, a team that was not going to play Smith over Colin Kaepernick.

Smith is slated to earn $7.5 million this season, and will become a free agent in 2015.
