49ers QB Smith On The Trade Block – Will The Browns Make A Push For Him?

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that 49ers will attempt to trade quarterback Alex Smith this offseason.

Some believe they will be able to do it because there is not a great supply of available quarterbacks and there is a demand for Smith.

Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner worked well with Smith in San Francisco when he was the team’s offensive coordinator in 2006 and Chiefs coach Andy Reid has expressed interest in Smith in the past, making Cleveland and Kansas City two possible destinations.

There’s one other factor to consider in the 49ers’ preference to trade Smith. If San Francisco deals him instead of cutting him it would save the $1 million or $2 million roster bonus it would have to pay if he is released.

So with that in mind – do you want Smith? If so, what would you be willing to give up for him? Owner Jimmy Haslam has already said there will be an open QB competition this year in camp – but if the team inks Smith – you would have to

    They certainly should – Weeden is not the answer.

    He is just an older version of Colt. He doesn’t have a good long ball either. Keep Colt and give him a shot and or bring in another and have a three way race.

    If the price is not too steep, yes we need to try to get him! We would have to use a draft pick because everybody we have of trade value needs to be kept to build around and everybody else is not worth crap! A 3rd would be way too high of a price! Maybe a 4th or a 5th & 6th!

    Unfortunatley they are looking for a first from what I have seen so far. I do not think that they will get that, because people know they are trying to move him. I do not see him going for less than a second or a combination of a second and third.

      Since Cleveland has no 2, it would have to be a later round — and I don’t think SF will go down to a 4 or lower. 5 with McCoy?
