95.7 The Game's John Middlekauff is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs might be out of the race to bring back CB Sean Smith. Instead, it is likely now a two-team race between the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.
Hearing Sean Smith could be a 2 horse race between SF & Oak. KC might be out. Potential changing of the guard decision in the bay?— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) March 9, 2016
On Monday, it was reported by Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area that the 49ers had discussions about bringing Smith to San Francisco. Cornerback is one of the many positions of need for the 49ers.
SF wants Smith & the #Raiders love is real. This deal would have been OVER 12 months ago. He'd be in SF. Crazy how things have changed— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) March 9, 2016
Smith, a 2009 draft selection out of Utah by the Miami Dolphins, has had 353 tackles, 10 interceptions, three forced fumbles, 81 passes deflected, and a defensive touchdown over his career.
