Report: Alex Smith trade deal may be done

Feb 24, 2013 at 4:12 PM--


According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the San Francisco 49ers have expressed that a deal to trade quarterback Alex Smith is already done and will be finalized once free agency begins. There has been much speculation recently that the Kansas City Chiefs are very interested in the 49ers quarterback.

@JasonLaCanfora:
The 49ers have expressed to others that a deal for QB Alex Smith is effectively complete. Can't be finalized til league year begins 3/12 so it's not official, both clubs view it at as it's effectively done. I do not know the other team. KC and JAX are 2 teams that make sense

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union says that, according to GM Dave Caldwell, it is not the Jacksonville Jaguars that have a deal in place for Smith.

@ryanohalloran:
#jaguars GM Dave Caldwell says via text "not us" who has deal in place for SF QB Alex Smith.

Mary Kay Cabot, a beat writer for the Plain Dealer Brown, says that the team that has a deal in place with the 49ers is not the Cleveland Browns, so scratch them off the list as well.

But, as Shanahan explained after the game, the 49ers didn't see the angle of the play that would have overturned the original call, and the Eagles were able to get their next play off before anyone had a chance to review the play. Smith made what originally looked like a dazzling one-handed 29-yard catch on a 4th-and-3 play of the game's opening possession, setting up the Eagles with

The San Francisco 49ers and Brock Purdy are close to deciding surgery path for the 23-year-old quarterback. According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the plans are nearing finalization, with more discussions taking place on Monday. The likely path appears to be the plan that involved a six-month recovery time, making it more likely that Purdy will be available for training camp and the 2023 season, assuming there are no complications or setbacks. Purdy sustained a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow during the NFC Championship Game loss against the Philadelphia Eagles. He returned to the game because his backup, Josh Johnson, was ruled out with a concussion. However, Purdy could not throw the football, leading to an altered game plan that only included
