Former Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith retired from the NFL in April, but before long, he again may be associated with the game in some fashion, Pete Grathoff of the Kansas City Star reports.

After Smith, who started his career with the 49ers and finished it with Washington, announced his retirement, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he’d give Smith an assistant’s job if Smith was interested.

That seems unlikely to happen, as Smith wants to spend more time with his family. But a job as a television analyst might be Smith’s next gig.

The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand reported Wednesday that Smith has auditioned with CBS Sports and Fox Sports for an analyst job, while also talking with ESPN and the NFL Network.

“One person who saw Smith’s audition thought he had ‘No. 2 or 3 game analyst’ potential if he is into it,” Marchand wrote.
