If a team really wants him, they'll just wait until we release him before surrendering that high of a pick. Maybe we get a 5th rounder for him, at best.
    I disagree. A team that doesn't believe Alex would actually choose to play there might trade for him knowing it's the only way to get him. Knowing he might actually have a couple of options as a FA, a team in turmoil with no weapons like say,,, the Jets might think trading is the only way to get him.

    Well, I disagree with you. First, I don't think Alex will have a ton of options. Some teams will be interested, but not a lot of teams. I'm willing to bet 2-3 teams. However, Alex won't be any of those teams only option. I would bet anything that nobody is surrendering a 3rd round pick or higher for Alex Smith. We'd be lucky to get a 5th.

    Unfortunately, I think you're right. As much as Smith as improved over the last two seasons, it's pretty obvious that the team is built to keep games close and wait for a mistake from the opponent. Smith is very smart, but he doesn't strike fear into anyone.

    While I hold Alex a little higher than most here do, I don't think teams will sacrifice high draft choices for him. Because really if you look at the teams that will want him, they are going to need those draft's if he's going to stand any chance of winning.

    I see if things keep going the way they look to be... Alex getting cut and some team picking him up on a close to $8-10 mil a year deal for 2 - 3 yrs.

    I say we pay the bonus and trade him to KC, just to insure he doesn't end up in Arizona

    I'd be happy with that... then my wife and I get to go to a Bronco's game and root for KC wearing a KC & SF Alex jersey!

    I believe it's 1 mil in March. And the full 7.5 mil on April 1st. If I remember correctly it's mid March when trades can start, so there is like a 2+ week window before his full salary becomes due.

    It was pointed out that Kaep has a 4th quarter QBR of 99.2 since taking the starting role.

    His QBR is also the highest among a player's first 4 starts since they started using the metric 5 years ago.
