Unless former first string San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith is forced to relieve current QB Colin Kaepernick during the Super Bowl next Sunday, the game will most likely be Smith’s last as a 49er.

Alex Smith, reportedly, will ask to be released from the team before he becomes a free agent on March 12th. If he is released, he will not receive the 8.5 million dollars of his annual salary, but will have the ability to pick the team of his choice.

Smith was having a great season before sustaining a concussion that had caused him to miss every game since.

The 49ers essentially must choose between trading Smith (and his 8.5 million contract) or releasing him. It must’ve been so depressing to realize how incredible his back up QB was and see that his team no longer needed him.

But The NFL is full of quarterback needy teams, and thankfully, only some of them suck beyond all repair.

Smith was benched by the 49ers in favor of Kaepernick after Smith missed time with a concussion.
