Niners to try and trade Smith

Published on January 29, 2013 by   ·   No Comments

No surprise here but quarterback Alex Smith won’t be back with the San Francisco 49ers next season. Ian Rapoport of is reporting that the team won’t outright release him, they’ll first try to trade him. Rapaport also says there are a few teams that there are two, possibly three teams interested in him.

If those three teams truly are interested then the Niners should be able to get a decent draft pick for him, likely a mid-rounder. Only thing is Rapoport says the team won’t shop him for long.

If any of those teams trade for him, he’ll most likely be a stopgap QB while a young guy is groomed. Much like 2012 was for him.
