It looks like the San Francisco 49ers sweetened the contract offer they initially made to quarterback Alex Smith.  The deal that had been on the table was for three-years $24 million. According to the Associated Press, Smith’s new contract could pay him up to $33 million.  I wonder if the 49ers felt bad about hurting Smith’s feelings in their pursuit for Peyton Manning. At the end of the day, it’s obvious that Smith ended up landing a very fair deal as the 49ers starting quarterback.

  • I think the whole 49er front office on down to whoever even thought of the idea to bring Payton to the City by the Bay should be doing everything they can to make Alex feel better . I have been a 49er fan for a very long time & I was not " feelin the Love " when they started talking about shippin him out . I dont any problem w Payton or Alex , but I DID NOT want Payton to be a 49er becouse we have a great QB already . I really hope that Alex can let all this go & move on from last season , I want to see Alex & the rest of my favorite team winnin a Super Bowl this season ... Rock on Alex ..
