Source: Smith is indeed upset over lack of loyalty by 49ers

Mar 19, 2012 at 4:01 PM--


NFL Network's Rebecca Haarlow is reporting that a source close to free-agent Alex Smith says that the quarterback is indeed upset over what occurred during the 49ers' pursuit of Peyton Manning. Smith feels that it was not about the contract or money, but it was about the loyalty.

The 49ers have said that the communication with Smith during this time has been good. The team has offered Smith a 3-year, $24 million deal with $10 million guaranteed. Miami is rumored to be interested in offering a multi-year deal, also for about $8 million a year.

NFL Network's Steve Mariucci still believes that San Francisco is the best landing spot for Smith. Including the playoffs, Smith led the 49ers to a 14-4 overall record in 2011, completing over 60% of his passes for 3,639 yards, 22 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions.

Smith is back in the Bay Area after a visit with the Miami Dolphins. However, there are no scheduled meetings with Smith.

This afternoon, head coach Jim Harbaugh was seen leaving the team's headquarters in Santa Clara. When Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee (@mattbarrows) was asked on Twitter if he had returned yet, he had this to say:

Still gone. Either patching things up w/ No. 11 or took a half day

This morning, Peyton Manning decided to sign with Denver over Tennessee or San Francisco.

Monday's press conference with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch didn't offer any concrete clues on which quarterback they'll be taking with the third overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, but one thing did become perfectly clear -- they very much seem to like the options they have in front of them out of a group that will likely consist of Mac Jones of Alabama, Justin Fields of Ohio State, and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The world won't know which of those players the 49ers like the most until the draft's first round takes place on April 29, but there's already been plenty of speculation as to who the selection will be. The widespread assumption is that quarterback Trevor Lawrence of Clemson will go at pick one to the



K'Waun Williams explains why he picked the 49ers over Jets, Chiefs in free agency

K'Waun Williams had choices in free agency. The New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs were interested. Ultimately, the cornerback opted to stay with the familiar, which meant re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers. "All the (offered) deals were pretty similar, at the time," Williams told reporters on Tuesday. "I just chose the Niners. I couldn't deny playing with some of my teammates, you know what I mean? In our secondary, we've got Jimmie (Ward), Jaquiski (Tartt), we've got Jason (Verrett), all those guys. Just being able to play one more year with those guys was just too intriguing to me." Williams visited with the Chiefs before re-signing with San Francisco. Understandably, he didn't want to discuss the Lombardi Trophy from Super Bowl LIV that was



McShay: Mac Jones won't start over Jimmy Garoppolo Week 1 if 49ers draft him

The argument for Mac Jones over some other quarterback prospects at No. 3 overall is that the former Alabama player might be among the most ready to step in and play. Some feel that Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State could benefit from sitting and learning for a year. Much of that has to do with the system within which Jones played last year. Fields and Lance are viewed as having higher ceilings than Jones, though. They may be better long-term prospects. ESPN's Todd McShay released his latest mock draft and has the San Francisco 49ers selecting Jones with their top pick. That



Simms 'will be shocked' if 49ers don't select Mac Jones at No. 3

Who will it be? Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State? Or could the San Francisco 49ers go in another direction? Immediately following the trade from No. 12 to No. 3, NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, voiced his opinion. He feels Mac Jones of Alabama is the best fit based on what he knows about his close friend, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. https://twitter.com/CSimmsQB/status/1375504136905580545 Simms reiterated those thoughts on Monday while speaking to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Florio asked his PFT Live co-host who he thinks Shanahan is leaning toward with a draft still a full
