After Peyton Manning chose the Denver Broncos and Alex Smith showing strong interest in the Dolphins, I came across this tweet from Vince Young. Apparently his sports management team tweeted that the Dolphins might be interested in Young, to which Vince responded or the 49ers.
“@DeniseWhite_EAG: How about @VinceYoung to the Dolphins? I hear rumblings? Would he be a good fit for them??” Or the 49ers

It seems that Young has interest in the 49ers…the good thing the 49ers have no interest in him.
BEST OF MAXIM

The Associated Press reported the numbers on the new three year deal Alex Smith and the 49ers agreed on.
Alex will earn $8 million per year, with $16.5 million guaranteed and the contract can pay him up to $33 million, overall.

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com,free agent wide receiver Mario Manningham has signed a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
There was simply no way the Giants were going to retain Manningham. He was looking for a lot more money then they could offer. Even though I believe he didn’t get the kind of pay day he was looking for. Right now we don’t have...

After going after Peyton Manning, and then hosting Matt Flynn and Alex Smith, the Dolphins landed a quarterback on Monday with multiple reports indicated they have come to terms with former Jacksonville starter David Garrard.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 21– There has to be a lot of loyalty in quarterback Alex Smith’s heart as he will remain with the 49ers after the team openly romanced Peyton Manning.
Smith did meet with the Miami Dolphins as that drama came to an end and at one point probably took a serious look at the Fins. However, be it common sense or letting bygones, be bygones, Smith will stay...
He was regarded as the second best free-agent quarterback on the market. I'm not quite sure why since he hasn't proven anything, but nonetheless many people regarded him as the No. 2 guy on the market behind Peyton Manning. The Seattle Seahawks agreed that he was a top free-agent quarterback as they signed Matt Flynn to a three-year deal worth $26 million, $10 million of...
Adam Schefter reports that Peyton Manning has called John Elway this morning and told him he is looking forward to playing for Denver.
The San Francisco 49ers flirted with a future Hall of Fame quarterback last week as they were in the chase for QB Peyton Manning. Ultimately, the 49ers missed out on Manning and in their actions, bruised the ego of one Alex Smith. Smith reportedly was looking to change agents on Saturday night, being represented by the same agent as Peyton Manning, Tom Condon. Alex Smith...
So in one of the more strange, weird, wacky QB free agency shuffling going on right about now, the Seattle Seahawks may have struck first as the NFL waits for Peyton Manning to make up his mind already. Peter King, among many, is now reporting that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year, $26 million dollar deal with the Seahawks, but only $10 million of it is guaranteed. And per...
