Alex Smith ... Release or Trade?
Niners Nation | Feb 7
The Title questions have become a hot topic here on Niners Nation. Some seem to think that no other team will trade for Alex because they can simply wait until he's released since the Niners can't afford to pay Alex's compensation package to a backup QB. Or, after all that Alex has been through with the Niners, others think that they owe it to him to just let him go to make his own deal with another team. Still others think that the Niners should try to trade Alex and "get something", but what? Others seem to think that Alex isn't worth more than maybe a third- or fourth-round draft pick. Unfortunately, nobody seems to have done any real homework to try to solve this "puzzle".
