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 2020 season didn't go as planned for the San Francisco 49ers. After coming off a disappointing Super Bowl loss, the team had lofty hopes and looked to make amends for the heartbreaking defeat by once again competing for a championship. An insurmountable number of injuries quickly transformed the roster, and the 49ers were unable to recover, finishing with a 6-10 record and missing the playoffs. The 49ers are expected to bounce back next season, assuming they can safely navigate an uncertain offseason. The team had nearly 40 players playing on the final year of their contracts and have to deal with what is sure to be a greatly reduced salary cap.
