We will get NOTHING for Alex.
The nature of his contract dictates that he will most likely be released in early march. The 49ers will probably try to sign him for backup money, but another team will offer him something better and he will be playing on another team next year. If Shaw at Stanford or Roman get NFL HC gigs, they will be first in line to sign Alex while simultaneously drafting a "QB of the future".
Alex Smith has officially just become Steve DeBerg (You know, the guy before THE guy). DeBerg was the starter in SF before Montana and then again in Denver before Elway. Kaep has a LONG way to go before he's in the Montana/Elway class...just sayin' I think Alex is destined to be the guy until THE guy is ready.
Look for the 49ers to stick with Kaep, back him up with Tolzien, sign Josh Johnson again and draft a QB in the later rounds of the draft to compete with him.
