In your opinion, would our first round pick and Alex sent to KC or Cle for thier 2nd and 3rd round picks a logical/realistic move??KC/Cle move back into the first round and get Alex for a 3rd round pick. 9ers move from the 31st pick to the 33rd or 38th. And recieve an early 3rd round pick that could potenially be packaged to get back into the 2nd. I have this hope that we package some mid round picks to bring in some needed quality depth and use our comp picks and perhapes move some other picks to stock pile next year. Your thoughts
I'm having a tough time gauging the value of Alex, one day it's no interest, then next day 5 teams may have interest in him. But If I am a GM, and namely KC , I rather trade my 2nd or 3rd for Nick Foles, who has a insanely great contract, and upside galore, over a 8 year Alex Smith, who's best year was 2011. I have a hard time seeing Alex netting us more than a mid 3rd. It wouldn't surprise me if he nets us a high 3rd, or as low as a 5th-7th. He isn't an option to stay. Dont read into Jed York and his cap crap b******t piece. The 49ers are $2.557M over the cap, they need the cap space if they even plan on keeping anyone of the Walker, Goldson and RJF. I have given up on us re-signing Sopoaga, seems like this years Rachal, no interest from us.
But for Alex, I can't see a team doing a big trade for him. March 12th-14th are the dates to watch. Something will happen then, 3 days into league year(which starts March 11th, FA 12th), we need to decide on trade or cut to save $9.75 million, or pay him a roster bonus of $1M. I see people having a trade in draft, I can't see them holding onto Alex. It's 1 not good cap wise, and 2 isn't right to Alex to force him to stay and not participate since he wouldn't be allowed on field with the players.
If anything happens, I hope, and I pray a 3rd for him. He makes $7.5 million in base the next 2 years. Not sure whether he will be required to take a pay cut, or play under that contract.
