Alex Smith to ask for release

http://tracking.si.com/2013/01/28/al...?sct=obnetwork


If no draft picks are involved, does that change your opinion on bringing him in?

Draft pick, Smith, Stanzi(?) as your QB's in camp.

If the Niners have him under contract, then why the hell would they cut him instead of trading him? That'd be pretty dumb.

Indy cut Manning, but that was because he was due a $28MM roster bonus and they didn't want to pay it.

Don't know. Just saw the article. Many here are opposed to bringing him in... as evidinced by the first reply. Many of those opposed use the giving up draft picks as the reason.

Do not want period. He would be just another retread rehash quarterback that we have seen the past 30 years. **** him. We wouldn't be drafting a QB #1 if we brought him here.


**** Alex Smith

There is a point that if they hold onto him they have to pay him a lot more of his contract. Teams know the 49ers won't allow that to happen and will release him at that point... Making him a FA.

Doubt they get much for him, but anything is something

Mike Florio, NBC Sports: "It’s widely believed that the 49ers will trade quarterback Alex Smith. The former starter is due to earn $8.5 million in 2013, with $1 million guaranteed now and the balance guaranteed as of April 1. It makes him a luxury that the team can’t afford.

But the player prefers not to afford the 49ers a chance to trade him. Instead, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Smith is expected to seek his release before the start of free agency.

It’s a calculated risk for Smith. On one hand, he’s be able to join any team he wants. On the other hand, he’d be losing the $8.5 million that he’d earn this year if his contract is traded.

Of course, that contract could make it harder to trade him. And the 49ers will have plenty of time to explore their options for trading Smith before the new league year (and the free-agency period) begins.

Unless they can send him to a team for which he really wants to play, the fair move would be to let him go. He has been a loyal member of the organization since he was the first pick in the 2005 draft, and he caused no trouble when he was benched during a very good season after suffering a concussion."

He's only on the hook for $1M guaranteed but his 2013 contract is $7.5M plus that $1M roster bonus that is guaranteed. That's a lot to pay for a backup QB, and exactly the reason they would cut him.

Could he not waive that 1m to help force the release?

And Jaguars will take him. Teddy Bridgewater will learn behind him for a year in two years.

tool. Always looking to next year like idiots without a clue. Alex Smith wouldn't be good for anyone's team. Take him out of that nurturing talent factory that is SF and he's Cassel. DO NOT WANT.

I'm not saying he'll be there in 2013. I think there's ZERO chance of that.

But the point is he'll be TRADED, not cut.

Fat Elvis in this draft class that is actually probably true when dealing with these QB's but none the less there is no difference in a 2nd/3rd round QB's.
