The 49’ers continue to look at options to upgrade their offensive line, and the Sacramento Bee reports that the team has made an offer to former Steelers offensive tackle Marvel Smith. The agent for Smith says that he is going to take a weekend to think over the deal.
Smith, who was released by the Steelers, does have a history of back problems, but the team must think he is okay after he came in this past week for a meet-and-greet with the team which included general manager Scot McCloughan and coach Mike Singletary.
The 49ers are looking for an upgrade at the right tackle spot, a position that saw three different players play the role in 2008: Jonas Jennings (two games), Adam Snyder (six) and Barry Sims (eight). Smith was a Pro Bowl tackle in 2004 but then ran into injuries over the past two seasons and has missed 14 games over the last two years.
