49ERS EXTENDED JUSTIN SMITHS CONTRACT

This is why the organization is leading the way, they make the right move in advance.
Like we all said we had 3 options: extend guys to lower their 2013 cap #, re-structure deals or cut players. I'm glad we extended and re-structured rather than cut. We are better off with Goodwin, Haralson, Manningham, etc. Like you guys said we should be getting Reid signed any day now that we have room plus a little left over for emergency signings during the season. He's not holding out at all.. there is a set number with this new cap and the way he has been acting he will be glad to sign the deal. It's common to get the lower rounds done first. The deals are easier, cheaper and we probably didn't have the room to get Reid signed earlier. Not to mention we have been working on signing guys off the street, extensions and restructurings. Not worried at all.

Like you guys said this move will allow Justin to finish his career here and even though he might still be able to be a role player after 2015 he will likely retire. He will gladly rotate but he doesn't want to be that guy only getting a few snaps a game. As for next year's free agency of course this takes our biggest guy off the market.

Biggest FA's Left: Brown, Boldin, Whitner, Manningham, Williams, Dawson, Asomugha, McCoy, Tolzien
Probably Gone: Jonathan Goodwin, Parys Haralson and Anthony Dixon
Lower Priority (Might Be Gone This Yr): Brock, Cox, Tukuafu, Dobbs, Wilhoite, McBath, Moore, Cam Johnson, Osgood

Agent: 'Justin, you've got to get as much as you can out of them in your final 2 yr contract before you retire. You get your money. I get my cut. It won't come around again. No brainer deal. I can get it done. '

Smith: 'I can make this easier.... Negotiate the deal myself. Take a lower offer within their range cuz I don't have to give you your cut.'

Agent: 'Yeah... but ... wait! ....Did you say--'

Baalke comments about the extension.

"Justin's All-Pro contributions on the field, as well as his leadership on and off the field, are integral to our success as a team," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement released by the team. "Justin consistently sets a standard of excellence, serving as an example for everyone within our organization. This contract allows Justin to finish his career as a 49er!"

My understanding is that this two-year extension will make Justin Smith in 2016.

Is that correct?
