"Here's a look at the players whose contracts run out at the end of the 2010 season and where the 49ers' priorities lie.
QB Alex Smith. I'm not listing Smith first because he's one of the top players on the team. He's first because of the position he plays. The 49ers have to set aside money in 2011 and beyond for a starting quarterback whether that person is Smith or Smith's replacement. The 49ers are expecting Smith to take a big step forward this season and lead the team to the playoffs. If he does, he can expect to be rewarded. If he doesn't, the 49ers will have to find another franchise QB. (Rhymes with Vichael Mick?)"
Frankly, I'd much rather see Nate Davis given a chance if Alex struggles this season (which I personally don't think he will). But in a strange way I can see how Matt Barrows could see that Vick might be attractive to Singletary and Raye.
