There is a good chance that the 49ers won't pay Smith his $8 million option bonus next March, one that would secure contract seasons for the 2009-10 seasons. If they don't pay, Smith will have a base salary of $2 million next year.

Mike McDaniel's hygiene was in the headlines on Wednesday. The first-year head coach for the Miami Dolphins shared that he would often go from game days until late in the week without showering while serving as an assistant with the San Francisco 49ers. McDaniel doesn't do that now because, as a head coach, he has to meet with too many people regularly.
