Torrey Smith: “I’m glad to be here and try to help be a part of the solution”

Nov 2, 2016 at 11:25 AM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith joined Murph & Mac on KNBR 680 today and discussed the possibility of a trade, which did not occur prior to yesterday's trade deadline.

Smith described how he felt about the possibility of being traded to another team. "If it happens, alright," Smith said. "If it doesn't, I'm going to be here smiling away, ready to roll. I say that because it sucks obviously, football-wise. It hasn't been going too well for me individually. I haven't really been involved and as a team, we haven't been getting it done. The combination of the two things that hurt you the most in this profession has been going on. But I'm glad to be here and try to help be a part of the solution to get this thing back on track."

Smith was asked about the 49ers' upcoming opponent, the New Orleans Saints, who the team hosts on Sunday. "I think that we'll have our opportunities in the passing game," Smith said. "I think we have those opportunities every week. We just have to go out there and make it happen."

With RB Carlos Hyde out with a shoulder injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 23, RB DuJuan Harris was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster and turned some heads. "He played awesome last year too [with the 49ers]," Smith answered. "I don't know if you remember, but that last part of the year, he was playing awesome. You know, we have four running backs that can really play. It's a matter of who has the hot hand and who they're going to go with, but we're confident with either one of those guys back there."

When asked who he was rooting for in Game 7 of the World Series between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs, Smith said that he was rooting for Chicago because he thinks it would be hilarious if Cleveland blew a 3-1 series lead. In June, the Golden State Warriors blew the same lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. "I think that would be pretty funny," said Smith.

49ers add WR DeVonta Smith in latest PFF mock draft

If the San Francisco 49ers don't make a move for a quarterback in this year's draft, many can envision the team going after a cornerback or adding another defensive end. Several of San Francisco's top cornerbacks are scheduled to become free agents. It's a list that includes Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. The 49ers didn't have their top two pass rushers — Nick Bosa or Dee Ford — for most of last season. Bosa is rehabbing an ACL injury, while the status of Ford's back and neck injuries remains unclear. If Ford isn't healthy by April 1, San Francisco will be on the hook for a significant portion of his 2021 salary — $11.6 million — regardless of whether he is on the roster. Rather than target one of these positions,



ESPN's Smith and Kellerman have different QB predictions for the 49ers

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take have different predictions on who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers during the upcoming season. Kellerman often defends Jimmy Garoppolo against Smith's criticisms, so you might naturally assume that Kellerman would predict that San Francisco would avoid shaking things up. You might also assume that the critical Smith predicts that the 49ers move on from Garoppolo. The opposite is true. Smith envisions San Francisco sticking with Garoppolo while Kellerman has another quarterback in mind to lead head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Me personally, I think it's going to be Jimmy G (as the 49ers' starter)," Smith declared. "That's what I believe. I believe that everybody's been

It's been the better part of a decade since Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick were part of the same quarterback room with the San Francisco 49ers, but Smith still sounds as impressed as ever with what he experienced on and off the field when the two of them were teammates. Smith spoke for almost an hour this week on Kaepernick and a number of other subjects during a guest spot on the 10 Questions With Kyle Brandt Podcast (click here to listen). Smith, who was the starting quarterback for the 49ers when Kaepernick was selected in Round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, told Brandt he remembered Kaepernick as a "great dude" who brought an impressive work ethic to the NFL right out of the gate. "We were doing workouts
