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.

Indy cut Manning, but that was because he was due a $28MM roster bonus and they didn't want to pay it.
Doubt they get much for him, but anything is something

They just signed him to a fair contract last year. I wouldn't let him out of it unless a team wants to trade for him.

Smith isnt as bad as alot of people think. Under good leadership and coaching, he could help stablize a sinking ship. Hes already proven that. I just dont see him as any sort of long term solution.

The thing is the 49ers won't just keep him on roster because he just costs to much money to have as a back-up. Teams know the 49ers won't get much for him in a trade as everyone will just wait things out till they have to release him for finical reasons. Smith knows that and it is the reason he is asking for the release now to speed up the process.

The Chiefs or whomever that would get Smith isn't getting him as a long term solution anyways.

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.

People who don't want him as a FA are dumbasses. Seriously. I want us to draft a QB (Smith) with the #1 pick. When we do that, I want us to have some type of backup QB should Geno either get hurt or completely suck. The last thing I want is Cassel, Quinn and/or Stanzi waiting in the wings. Smith would be a quality backup QB, especially in a WCO style offense.

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.

If they release him (doubtful), I'd take him but wouldn't promise him the starting role. I'd still draft Geno Smith. I'd be happy with Geno, Alex, and Either Stanzi or Trick shot as my third.

You think Smith is asking for his release to go be a backup somewhere else?

Smith wants out of his current (generous) deal because he's a backup all so he can sign with a different team and be a backup?

Hey, nobody said the guy was smart.

At this moment he would probably take any starting job no matter the future plans. He WILL be starting for someone next season and it could be KC!
