Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith brushed aside any notion that the deal reached between the Bengals and Andy Dalton could affect negotiations on his own long-term contract.

Dalton and Smith are considered on a similar tier of quarterbacks, and many believe that they would receive comparable deals. Dalton signed a six-year extension that is reportedly worth up to $115 million, and now the wait is on to see what kind of deal Smith will receive.

The Chiefs have been negotiating with his representatives on a long-term deal for several months, though the sides remain far apart. Smith would be a free agent after this season.

Smith said after Monday's practice that he is focused on the season rather than his contract status, and that "I haven't given that stuff much thought."
