    San Francisco and QB Alex Smith agree to contract terms

    ***** avoid holdout with Smith
    Jay Glazer / FOXSports.com
    Posted: 15 minutes ago

    The No. 1 pick in this year's draft will be in on time.

    FOXSports.com has learned that the ***** have agreed to terms with their top pick, and the top overall selection, Utah quarterback Alex Smith. The deal exceeds the total the Giants gave to Eli Manning, last year's No. 1 pick.
    Smith's six-year contract is for $50 million and includes $24 million in bonus money, the most guaranteed money given to a rookie in the history of the NFL.

    The signing of Smith is significant, as nearly every other draft pick has been waiting for the No. 1 pick's deal to get done in order to base their deals upon that contract.

    Smith is expected to be the starting quarterback for the Niners this year ahead of last year's starter Tim Rattay and was signed to be the cornerstone for the next generation of ***** football.

    Last year at Utah, Smith led the Utes to the first BCS bowl appearance in the school's history and guided them to a 35-7 rout of Pittsburgh in the Fiesta Bowl.

    $24 million of guaranteed money (read: cap hit) for a kid that has never set foot on a professional field....now that is fiscal responsibility for you :tut .

    They showed some footage of Smith on ESPN with a helmet and no pads.


    Is it me, or does he look exceedinly scrawny for an NFL QB?

    I always thought Bulger was pushing the limit in terms of physique, but Marc is actually an inch shorter and 5 pounds heavier than Smith!

    Re: San Francisco and QB Alex Smith agree to contract terms

    Why you give Smith more money than Eli Manning is beyond me. Then again, I guess they are desperate to have him in camp. Still, he's really not as good of a pro prospect as the younger Manning.

    Now I'm interested to see what kind of numbers Aaron Rodgers is going to get. Days before the draft, it still wasn't locked as to who the Whiners were going to take between the two. Then Rodgers falls to #24. Should be interesting.

    Re: San Francisco and QB Alex Smith agree to contract terms

    I remember reading that the Niners knew all along who they were going to pick. that they didn't want to tip their hand. playing behind farve it might be a while before rodgers gets playing time.

    Re: San Francisco and QB Alex Smith agree to contract terms

    Here is an interesting question, how about the Rams next year trading up to get Leinhert?

    Why? Marc Bulger is an established starting QB who knows the system and has a cap friendly contract.

    Re: San Francisco and QB Alex Smith agree to contract terms

    Hmmm, I wonder if it were us who had drafted Smith if people would be bashing the money amount of the deal or calling Smith scrawny and saying that he never has played pro ball (either has Barron by the way, we don't seem to knock him for it). Come on people. The convenient Ram friendly spin jobs are getting out of hand. A couple of friends of mine (Steeler fan, Lion fan) have vistited this board have been giving me so much crap for being a Ram fan cuz this board makes us all look ultra biased and as if we give the Rams a free pass and rip the heck out of everybody else. I'm tired of being a punch line!

    If the Rams drafted him, I'd rip him harder. If the niners want to spend "Eli+" money on "Eli-" talent, that's their business, but if the Rams had done that, I'd be livid! And the team that drafted him has nothing to do with his weight or experience, so yes, I for one would still consider him to be scrawny and inexperienced.

    So get new friends.

    Oh gosh, this is too easy...I'll leave this one alone.
