So I think we can all agree that Alex Smith has earned the right to stay with the team beyond this year. If you were Baalke, how big of an extension/re-sign would you give him? Personally, I think a 3-year contract with a $6m/yr base and a ton of incentives that pays him like a Pro Bowl QB if he plays like a pro-bowl QB. That will take him through his 30th Birthday and Kaepernick's final season under contract. At that point, we will know if Smith will be a career 49er or not. If he is going into the '14 season and Kaepernick is developing, we trade Kaep for a 1st rounder and give Smith a contract commensurate with a 30-year old fringe pro bowler.
