Alex Smith Will Not Return with 49ers Next Season
Alex Smith knows he is entering his final days as a San Francisco 49er.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that Smith will not be a member of the team next year. The 49ers will try to trade him, but they will cut him early out of respect to Smith if nothing happens quickly.
The news of Smith's eventual departure is not a huge shock, but it's very notable that the team would be amenable to possibly cutting Smith. Rapoport notes that the 49ers have a strong relationship with Smith and his agent, Tom Condon. They believe he's earned the right to pick a team and be treated right.
So what teams are interested in Alex Smith?
So far: The Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs. The New York Jets have not shown interest yet. (Of course, any official contact would be against league rules at this stage.
And wherever that should be, I've got a good sized collection of cards to send to the fanbase of that team.

well arizona has no qb. they need one. alex smith isnt a big passer so it will depend on the head coach. they would have to set up a heavy run game and their running backs are suspect as well as the o-line. they need to rebuild in arizona. if smith goes there it will be like archie manning when he went to new orleans.

I don't see why any team would be willing to trade for him. He is a glorified back-up at best. Only thrown for 3000 yards one time, never thrown for 20 TDs in a season, career completion of 59%, win-loss record of 38-36-1. If my team needed a QB and he is who we got I would be EXTREMELY unhappy.

Any team that gets him is going to get a really good QB and a gentleman.
