Does Alex Smith have any Trade Value???

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1424365-navorro-bowman-extension-proves-the-san-francisco-49ers-know-what-they-are-doing?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=san-francisco-49ers

According to this he does.
"Depending on what happens with the starting quarterback situation for the remainder of the season, Alex Smith may find himself wanting out. San Francisco could avoid a $7.5 million hit if it decides to release Smith prior to April. A more likely scenario would be Smith being traded to a team currently in need of a starting quarterback. In any event, short of Smith retaining his starting job and leading San Francisco to a Super Bowl, he will most likely create a large salary void under the 2013 cap. "

Before figuring how alex is going to be wanted elsewhere in the NFL and there should be 6 locks for alex, and maybe another 10-14 besides that. The season isn't over. No way of knowing that on any given play, Kap could get a knee wiped out and Crabs could wipe out an ankle. Hey, it happened last week on one play to two starters, to Kyle and HUnter, both starters. So let's get thru this season , pray for no injuries, but remember, this team has a WR and RB ready to take the field after those two positions went down . Alex had his concussion. Don't think Kap isn't able to get one also. Now i certainly hope not, but the mario, moss thing and the Aj/LaMic thing are representative of what coach was worried about...injuries. So let's not have alex going anywhere yet. Let's go ahead, mash teams en route to the SB where we win it, and THEN see where alex may or may not end up. I would love to see him stay here if money allowed and if he permitted it. Also who is to say that Kap doesn't go out and lay an egg against rams, and alex had to come in and clean up Kaps mess. Remember, for a decimated team, they had the BIG RUSH on alex and kap, so bodies can get broken....and I hope they aren't ours.

No way is Alex better than any of those guys on that list. Remember Alex was a complete flop until Harbaugh arrived. Imagine a Sam Bradford on the 9ers with all our WR & VD and Running weapons and that lethal Defense?

He wasn't a flop before Harbaugh arrived. But the player being assessed is today's Alex Smith. And if you think all of those guys on that list are better than him, you are either eaten up with hate or you aren't a 49ers fan
Well flop, maybe not, but he is a bust for the draft position he was selected at. Unlike a plunket or his predessessors he showed no wow or it factor.

I think some of them are better than Alex but not all of them. While others are on the same level or below. I think your are looking at it in the wrong light though. How would they look if they played for the 49ers or if Alex played for them with their talent and coaching staff is. Some of them I wouldn't touch though, like Bradford, since college the guy has been fragile.

Personally, I think Alex Smith's ultimate trade value can't be measured in what we get but has to be weighed with the cap space free'ed up to re-sign some key players.

I just want to make sure Smith doesn't end up with the Cardinals. That's the only location where I think he could do damage with this team.


That may well be, because he can also give insider information on us. He will need better line play and a good RB though, cause he will have to face Aldon and Willis, since he doesn't want turn over the ball, he will get sacked a bit.

However, in the scheme of things, we will get something for him, unless a team wants to posiibly bid for him with others. Like one poster said, this is a weak draft, Barkley and Laundry ain't much, still they may bring him into start while the rookie gets trained for a year or two. The best bet would be if Roman left and wants AS cause he knows the system already. Another scenario is a team like the niners, D, ST and power running.

With that said,it don't matter this year, lets wait and see what happens.

We should get a nice little haul from some Qb needy team. A 2nd or 3rd would be ideal.

Unfortunately in order to trade him we have to pick up next years option. There is a 0.00001% chance that happens.

We most likely can't get anything for Smith.

I'm not worried about where Alex goes, even if Arizona. Arizona doesn't have a dominant offensive line or run game.
Obviously he's going to Seattle so that PC can pick his brain to further his Harbaugh obsession.

"So, Alex, tell me about Jim. Does he talk about me ever?"

I didn't know he had an option.

When can players be traded next year? I thought this could occur as soon as the post season is completed, or shortly thereafter?

You are exactly right about this. It's certainly premature talk with 5 games and the playoffs remaining.
Dont trade Alex Smith he is awesome.
