If Alex Smith still wants to be part of the 49’ers in 2009, it looks like it will be up to him. Today’s Santa Rosa Press Democrat talks about it in a blurb about Smith coming back to the club. Here’s the tidbit:
The 49ers want quarterback Alex Smith to return to the club in 2009. Smith said he wants to return. Therefore, the only thing that will keep that from happening is the 49ers’ ability to work out a contract agreement with Smith’s agent, Tom Condon.
Smith has proven little over his time in the league since being the first overall pick, so it would be smart of him to simply take what he can get from the Niners and stick around and try to have an impact on the team in some way.
