Because if A Smith wants to get back at Harbaugh, that would be a place since he knows the playbook.
He knows the Alex Smith playbook which I guarantee you will look nothing like a playbook geared towards Kaep for next season. Even if that weren't true Harbaugh knows Alex and his tendencies better than anybody and could exploit that to the max.
If I were Alex I would restructure and ride the bench. I can't think of an easier way to make money and still have a shot at redemption should Kaep get injured. The alternative is ending up on a desperate crappy team and possibly failing and being out of the league because of it. Not many coaches are as good at making conditions perfect for a QB like Harbaugh did with Alex.
Personally I can't imagine Alex on another team. Can you even picture how weird that would be seeing him start for the Chiefs or something?
