  Sure, 6.5 million is expensive for a backup, but what happens if Kap goes down? Wouldn't it be nice to have a seasoned veteran to step in if Kap does get hurt? The answer to that is yes..San Fransisco would be stupid to let him walk..

There is a 0% chance of this happening from both a football standpoint and from an economical standpoint.

Sure, it would be nice, but you don't pay your QB 8 million dollars to hold a clipboard.

Smith has already asked for his release at the conclusion of the season.

how about a sign and trade...all for that...get some draft picks for him....in a perfect world he'd be a great backup but i'd think he'd want to start somewhere....

 I didn't say it would happen, because it won't..It would be the smart thing to do in my opinion..If Kap goes down the season is over without Alex Smith..6.5 million is a lot to hold a clipboard, but it's a necessary insurance policy..But like you said it will not happen..

Its more than 6.5. They owe him 8 million on March 1st if he is on the roster. That's a lot of money they can use to keep Justin Smith or Dashon Goldson, or a CB or WR.

i think niners should of started smith when they first drafted him out of college i believe he would of been alot better player now with many years of experience. thye let him sit on bench to long. should of been playing long before he did IMO

It would be a super dumb move if they keep him where they can use that money to better the team elsewhere. A GM would do that deserve to be fired.

49ers get 3rd or 2nd round draft pick very easily for Smith, if they are serious about paying him the roster bonus so teams don't wait for him to be cut...

Look @ Chiefs they paid 2nd round for Matt Cassel and Texans paid 2nd rounder I believe for Schaub.

Bills, Chiefs, Eagles, Cardinals, Browns, Raiders, Jaguars, Jets all need QBs...And this is the weakest draft class for QB in recent memory. No luck or RG3

The way I look @ it is look how much a team like the Jets might have benefited from Smith playing instead of Sanchez. He could have easily won 2 games for them and pushed them into playoffs.

I can't see a 2nd round picks really having that kind of an impact, unless you hit gold...which is pretty rare

Most teams have 13 to 20 million commited to their qbs. kaepernick is on a cheap rookie deal for another 2 years. even if they kept smith, they would only have ~9 million commited to the qb spot, which i am confident in saying is amongst the lowest in the league, so i agree, niners should keep him on the roster....but...

.....That being said, smith doesnt want to be in san fran anymore, so time to let him go. he handled himself professionally while being benched and if he wants a chance to be a starter and give up his contract, its better for the team to let him go than keep him chained down and have a unhappy camper for an entire season

Alex Smith's money will be spread out to continue a Super Bowl Contender for the next 3-5 years....this is a fact. Even a bad GM would see that.

Alex smith goes because he wants to be a starter. Alex has value on him. We could save thee extra money for later players when their contract is up. Invest to keep solid key players. Colin Kap WILL want a bigger contract also. so it's all about maintaining a sustainable super bowl bond team for the next few years.

Not ignorant at @ all. Draft is a crap shoot @ times. Also how many rookies can make the contribution that Smith would... especially given the position he plays

For all the Kaepernicks and Andy Daltons, Deshawn Jacksons that were taken in 2nd round there's a 100 Arrelious Benns

Charger fan has his own problems, like how the Chargers continually fail despite having one of the leagues most talented teams!

Sorry yourdaddyspice but I agree with Bigniner. There are lots of 2nd round picks that are absolutely amazing players when they get going in the league. It's not very rare at all. You gotta think about all those RB's are WR's that are passed up on that end up being big time

I would love to see the Texans sign him and tell Schaub to get to walking!

I am not saying you can't get good players in 2nd round or later !!!
Its difficult thats all...

And with a Team like let say the Jets, Alex Smith could have gotten them a couple of more wins and pushed them in the playoffs...

 it would be worth it to say give up a 2nd or 3rd round pick for Smith and possibly playoffs....
Which is exactly what Chiefs did when they traded for Cassel. Granted he flopped.
