Found February 12, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
  The San Francisco 49ers are arguably in the early stages of the longest and most difficult offseason in team history.

Alex Smith Not a Hot Commodity

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that 49ers QB Alex Smith hasn't generated much interest on the trade market.Fantasy Spin:Three months ago, Smith (13 TD, 5 INT in 10 games) was the quarterback for a division-leader.
