Alex Smith, 49ers Agree To Deal, According To Reports

Apparently in the time it takes to write about Josh Johnson and then grab some dinner, crazy stuff has to happen. After ESPN reports that a deal was getting close between Alex Smith and the 49ers, Michael Lombardi is now reporting that a deal is done.

The last ESPN report indicated that the two sides were still looking at three years and $24 million, but the guaranteed money was still being negotiated. Alex was reportedly offered $10 million in guaranteed money previously, but might get a couple extra million following the last few weeks. ESPN also indicated contract language was being negotiated, which might include trade clauses and other issues like that.

If this deal is indeed done, it ends one of the more bizarre, dramatic stretches in recent memory. It was almost like being in high school with the questions of loyalty and betrayal. When people are comparing this to a jilted lover, you know things are getting crazy. Whatever the case, it looks like the band is back together again with a couple additions already. The team still has some holes to fill, but things are settling back down. More on this as details develop.

On a side note, site decorum will remain off for the remainder of today. Starting with the Nuggets tomorrow morning, site decorum will be back on, which means no swearing in the threads. There has been a little too much unacceptable behavior here the last few days.
