Deal for Alex Smith Done?

Originally posted by Phoenix49ers:
Let's be reality, he's basically the same player that Alex Smith was coming out of college. Spread QB that directed an explosive offense, athletic, bright, not seen as ready to become a starter immediately in the NFL...etc. The best thing for Geno Smith would be to have a smart veteran QB to sit behind for a couple seasons.

Only difference is Smith had a mastermind as a head coach whereas Geno did not. That's a big deal to me. You are right though. Geno is not a 1st overall pick caliber player.

Key point, they're trying to Harvin with all these draft picks.

f**k Harvin and his wanting to get paid $14 million a year.

Agreed he is always injured

So what are the rumors? Jax out, Cleve out, what about KC?

Almost everyone is saying KC. Bills have been thrown around, too. Buffalo makes some sense. TJack is hot garbage, and they refuse to make any sort of commitment to Fitz in the press. Maiocco made a good point on CSNBA that the 49ers should have little reason to fear Alex-to-AZ. No one is saying Oakland, but they're still bat-feces-crazy (even with Al underground), and they can't be THAT excited about Palmer/Pryor.

My feeling is that with all those picks and a draft deep in defensive line and safety talent, they had better not be thinking about dropping a load of money on a free agent. I see at least two potential starters on defense in the first three rounds of this draft for a tiny fraction of what they would pay a b***hing prima dona like Harvin.

I saw he wanted $10 million a year last week.

Markus Wheaton from Oregon St reminds me of Antonio Brown/Mike Wallace type of player I believe he is gonna be good.

If we can give Minnesota our 3rd round pick for Harvin then hell yeah.
Lol at some of you. Harvin is making chump change he deserves to get paid. I would love to have the guy on our team

Orrrrrrr, why rent Harvin for a year, when you miht have a shot at Austin for 4-5 years and a much lower price tag? If Richardson, Floyd, Jones, and Short are gone, I don't think we drop a lot in DL talent by waiting until rd 2. Austin is gonna make people look stupid. His versatility could keep him dangerous in the redzone, where a lot of small WRs become less effective. Plenty of picks to deal with other issues in a deep draft. No reason for us to throw picks away for one year w/a spoiled-ass d-bag. If Harvin had Alex's character, Minny woulda re-upped him by now.

Strong one year rental for a guy plagued with injury issues. Would rather this team keep Kaepernick and Crabtree than an overrated headcase.

Minnesota Vikings' Percy Harvin is a dynamic player, but he likely sees himself in the class of the top wide receivers in the NFL, a source tells ESPN. As such, Harvin wants to be compensated similarly to top receivers such as Arizona Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald and Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson.

Who do we cut to keep him in 2014? You'd better think of at least 2 names, because no one makes $10-14 million around here. Kiss Crab goodbye, too.

Do you really think the Niners should bring in a guy who wants $14 million a year? Really? With a stockpile of 14 or more draft picks? And, if they do that, what do you think they have to pay Crabtree when his contract comes up in the next season? Please. It just doesn't make sense. I'll be shocked if they do something like that.

According to 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, there is a rumor around the NFL that trade target Percy Harvin is seeking an annual salary of $10 million with a target goal of $12 million annually.


Also, that doesn't mean he's gonna hold out if he doesn't get that much. Supposedly Mike Wallace wants Fitzgerald money too. He's very unlikely to get that much this offseason but he'll definitely sign with a team in the first couple days of free agency.


Crabtree may also want to be paid like Fitz and Johnson too, but he won't.

This, discussing Harvin is absolutely obtuse. It makes no sense, this team can't afford to pay him the amount he's looking for. The only reason Minnesota, regardless of their claims, has taken out feelers on his trade value is because they don't want to be stuck with an overpriced contract as he fights through injury issue after injury issue. You can't take on a guy who will get paid $10-15 million a year and then hope to give Crabtree, Kaepernick, Aldon, Iupati and Davis their money too, or have the temerity to ask ANY of them to offer up a hometown discount when you've brought in an outside guy and paid him bigtime.

The 49ers need cheaper solutions at WR through the draft.
