KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

For the first time since news broke about his pending trade to the Washington Redskins, quarterback Alex Smith shared his thoughts on the deal. 

This week, the California native talked about it one KNBR, one of his hometown stations. 

“I’m jacked," Smith said. "I’m really excited. Once I found out that things in Kansas City were going in a different direction, I was pumped at the opportunity. When Washington came calling, I was hopeful that was a possible destination."

The trade won't be official until March 14. 

It has been reported that Smith has agreed to a four-year deal with the Redskins. 

In return for Smith, the Chiefs will receive a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller.
