Peter King of Sports Illustrated is reporting that he has heard that free-agent quarterback Alex Smith's agent, Tom Condon, has spoken with the Miami Dolphins this afternoon. He also notes that this could be for real or is simply could be for leverage with the San Francisco 49ers.

Smith has obviously become top priority for the 49ers with Peyton Manning deciding to go to the Denver Broncos. On Sunday, Smith made it publicly known that he was willing to be the 49ers' plan B and left a 5-hour visit with Miami without a contract. It is rumored that Miami was willing to offer Smith a multi-year contract at about $8 million a year.

Seattle Seahawks fans already had to endure three years of watching cornerback Richard Sherman in red and gold, which looks less odd now than it did when he made his San Francisco 49ers debut. Could the Pacific Northwest handle another fan-favorite crossing over to the division rival? If you think the 49ers will have to do some creative maneuvering to stay under the salary cap — whatever the limit ends up being — the rest of the NFC West is in worse situations. San Francisco's over $13 million in projected cap space leads the division, per The Arizona Cardinals look to have under $12 million, the Seattle Seahawks just over $4 million, and the Los Angeles Rams — well, they

Let's just note right off the bat that this one probably isn't going to happen and sounds very unrealistic. Dak Prescott isn't likely to hit the open market, and even if he does, he will cost a significant sum of money. That didn't stop Seth Galina of Pro Football Focus, in a special for ESPN, from identifying the Dallas Cowboys quarterback as a match for the San Francisco 49ers. "Each NFL team has a specific weakness -- whether that's edge rushing, slot coverage or just general quarterback play -- so we decided to fit a player who would fill that specific need for the team," explained

Barring any development in the next week or so, the San Francisco 49ers seem content with allowing cornerback Jason Verrett to test free agency. The team is unlikely to finalize any big deals until the final salary-cap number is known and isn't likely to be a significant player at the onset of free agency. Instead, it will likely wait for the dust from the initial frenzy to settle and take a more prudent approach. Verrett is among several 49ers defensive backs slated for the open market. Richard Sherman, K'Waun Williams, Jaquiski Tartt, and Ahkello Witherspoon will join him. Verrett, though, is the cornerback who Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus feels could be a good value for any interested team. Those who are interested might have to overlook his injury-plagued
