Does Alex Smith have any Trade Value???

It's a two-way street. Harbaugh helped Smith resurrected his career, but without Smith in the first year, it's unlikely Harbaugh would have gotten the 13-3 record. Being thankful for someone's help in the past doesn't mean that you'd be subservient to that person's interest for all time. Harbaugh did what he thought he needed to do. Smith should do what he needs to do that is to leave the 49ers when he has the best market value. If he sticks with the 49ers next season, his value will depreciate over time as most likely he will be the backup.

It only takes two teams to create a market for Alex. There is no chance the Niners just let him go. They will pay the roster bonus if needed. I bet you a team is willing to give up a first round pick for him. The draft is really weak this year for QBs.

No way in God's green earth will a team trade a first round pick for him.

I'm so confident in that if it happens I will quit this forum.

Second, why oh why would a team picking HIGH or LOW give their pick up for Alex alone? If you're picking high, your taking one of the crummy QB's coming out this year. If you're picking low, chances are you really don't need a QB that bad.

Smith is on track for more than 17-20 TDs this season.

In 7 years he has never thrown for more than 18 TD's.

Promises...promises.
Sus, I will put up a bottle of our best big red wine(Cab/syrah blend, Paso Bordo, Intl gold medal LA Intl, and 91 pts.) that alex brings a first, if we keep him with the early bonus check. ($1mil). What will you put up that says he won't bring a first rd pick? I don't think one of the top 5 qbs stats wise is going to go for anything less than a first. If alex chooses not to play here, he will be the most sought after QB in FA and all 8-10 most like teams, and another 8-10 possible teams have all been named already. Really Sus, what will you put up if alex goes for a 1st?

I'll have a bottle of Dom Perignon delivered to your house if that happens.

Hers my opinion on Alex, we release him he's been a class act and deserves to be released.

If I were Alex Smith, I'd demand to be released after the season no matter what the outcome (yes, even with the scenario Smith takes the 49ers to the SB.)

This. I think Alex will ask Harbaugh for a release as soon as the season is over and Harbaugh will give it to him....
If we trade Alex, i think we can get conditional 1st (performance dependent) in 2014 and a decent pick in 2013 (3rd or 4th rd).
I could see us getting a first from someone if we swapped them a fourth or fourth and a fifth... Which would be well worth it depending on the slot placement.

Remember we have like 13 picks lol we don't need those cause we don't have te roster need for that many new rookies

Seattle will trade a 1st for him, don't all the niner castaways go there, lol. Seriously, I think we could at least get a 3rd, but we will cut him instead. We will not pay the bonus and we already have alot of draft picks and only a few roster spots. I expect us to package some picks together to move up in the draft or we will trade them away for future picks.
I was thinking a 2nd and a 4th. But I don't think we'll eat the roster bonus, so I think he gets cut and gets paid about 10 mil per year.
I could also see us getting a future first rounder for him instead of one in this years drafts. Some coaches are willing to trade later pika cause they need to win now and if they don't they'll be gone anyways so it won't be their problem


Also I would of bet my car that the raiders wouldn't of have up a first rounder and potientially another (turned into a second I believe) for s**tty Carson palmer
