This is approximately the same deal that has been on the table for Alex Smith for months, so it doesn’t appear the flirtation with Peyton Manning got him paid any more.
Maybe he got a better parking spot or something.
I know he was salty, but he is a smart guy, he knew that the 49ers better situation than Dolphins. Considering how much money he has made when he wasn’t playing that well, he shouldn’t be that upset.
The 49ers, fresh off their flirtation with Peyton Manning, are now in the process of finalizing a three-year, $24 million contract with Smith, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports.
Although many details — including how much of that $24 million is guaranteed — remain unknown, that’s the same deal Smith reportedly had on the table before free agency even started.
