According to Peter King of SI.com, if the San Francisco 49ers end up losing quarterback Alex Smith in free agency, they would end up saving about $8 million dollars in cap room.  In that case they might decide to go after Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace.

The 49ers would likely have to pay Wallace around $8 million a season and give up the 30th pick in this year’s draft, but it might be worth it, especially if they land Peyton Manning.
