The Kansas City Chiefs are beginning to take a liking to 49ers' backup quarterback Alex Smith, according to a report from NFL.com.

The Chiefs have taken the most interest of any NFL team in Smith, mainly because they see his ability to step in and succeed from Day 1.

The report also says the 49ers have spent time this week at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis laying groundwork for a potential Smith trade, however any trade cannot be completed until March 12, when free agency begins.
