Harbaugh, Smith talking and ironing things out

Mar 19, 2012 at 5:47 PM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports on Twitter (@MaioccoCSN) that San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and free-agent quarterback Alex Smith are talking and "ironing things out."

Minutes ago, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee (@mattbarrows) reported that Harbaugh was back in the building at the 49ers' headquarters in Santa Clara.

Am told that Harbaugh is back in the building and has been for a while. But how? We've been out front all day. #coachninja

The team has offered Smith a 3-year, $24 million deal with $10 million guaranteed. The only other team that showed some interest was Miami and it was announced minutes ago that the Dolphins signed David Garrard, eliminating some of the leverage that Smith may have had.

Maiocco adds the following quote from team CEO Jed York:

"We have a contract on the table and it's up to him. We'd like for him (Alex Smith) to be here, and we'll see where it goes."

When asked if he expects Smith to be his quarterback, York added:

"I hope he is."

The NFL will release the entire 2022 schedule on May 12. Three days earlier, the matchups and dates of select games will be revealed. One of those will likely be the NFL kickoff game—the first game that kicks off the 272-game slate of matchups. Typically, the reigning Super Bowl champions will host that first game of the season. That means some team will need to travel to SoFi Stadium to try to hand the Los Angeles Rams an 0-1 start. Steve Smith Sr. of NFL Media is hoping the visiting team is the San Francisco 49ers. It's certainly a possibility. However, the Rams are also scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, and Seattle Seahawks.
