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.

Albert Breer weighs in on when the 49ers might trade Jimmy Garoppolo

When will the San Francisco 49ers finally trade quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, officially ushering in the Trey Lance era without the distraction of the veteran still being on the roster? The team has tried, but Garoppolo opting to undergo shoulder surgery on March 8 halted all trade talks. "I felt like we were close in some [trade] discussions, and then the decision was made to have surgery," general manager John Lynch said earlier this month. "That just brought things to a screeching halt." Now, everyone is waiting for Garoppolo to be healthy again. The problem is that many quarterback-needy teams have already made offseason moves to improve the position. A couple



Bleacher Report identifies 49ers' biggest remaining need

The San Francisco 49ers did what they could to address offseason needs. They signed Charvarius Ward and drafted two cornerbacks to bolster that position. In addition, they hope to have found a replacement for Dee Ford in second-round draft pick Drake Jackson. There remains uncertainty about who will be playing alongside Jimmie Ward at safety, but the team has options. While the 49ers drafted two offensive linemen—Spencer Burford and Nick Zakelj—the interior of that line is among the team's most prominent question marks heading into the 2022 season. It will be tough to replace Laken Tomlinson, who is now with the New York Jets. Also, Tom Compton left for the Denver Broncos after just two seasons with the 49ers.
