Mar 5, 2015 at 4:52 PM--


San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has agreed to a contract restructure per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

Smith can still get his $9.75 million, but it is no longer guaranteed. The new deal, now based on monthly and weekly bonuses, will allow the 49ers to part ways with Smith if there are any off-the-field issues.

Smith was selected by the 49ers in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Since then, he has had 152 tackles, 44 sacks, an interception and five forced fumbles. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2012.

The 2021 NFL Draft is in the books. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters after making their eighth and final selection. There has been some speculation that the team might ask quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to restructure his contract this offseason, especially after drafting his eventual replacement — Trey Lance of North Dakota State — with the No. 3 overall pick. There are no plans to do so right now. Why? Because it's not necessary. Even after earmarking over $12 million for its latest rookie class, San Francisco isn't as pushed up against the salary cap as some felt it would be this offseason. Garoppolo remains part of the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season and will be needed to mentor the

Better safe than sorry, right? Dale Arnold of NESN reports that the New England Patriots are working on a new contract for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, Garoppolo is still with the San Francisco 49ers, and this news doesn't necessarily mean that a deal is imminent. If accurate, it just means that the Patriots are getting everything in order -- just in case a trade happens. It could also mean that the Patriots believe the 49ers are likely to seek a trade.

Analyst and writer Michael Detillier, who contributes to several media outlets, joined the BetQL Daily podcast on Thursday and discussed the San Francisco 49ers' upcoming quarterback decision in next week's draft. Detillier recalls the day the team moved up nine spots from No. 12 overall to get into a position to acquire one of the top young talents. He was getting ready to publish his mock draft and needed to make some changes as it was headed to print due to the trade. While the national narrative quickly linked Mac Jones of Alabama to the 49ers, Detillier heard that general manager John Lynch had his sights set on a different prospect. Whether or not head coach Kyle Shanahan felt the same way is unknown. "When I went to print was the day of the

The San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world on March 26 when they traded a haul of draft picks to move up to the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft. It got everyone talking and speculating. Former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson was going through his pro day when the news broke. General manager John Lynch was in attendance, and the story seemed to overshadow the workout of the player widely expected to go No. 2 overall. While everyone immediately assumed the 49ers' blockbuster move was for their quarterback of the future, which was confirmed by Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan three days later, one confident top prospect wasn't so sure.
