Golden Nuggets: So, About That Right Guard ...

Alright, gents ... we've got Alex Smith back under contract and all is well. He's not making much more than the offer that was already on the table, he's just getting a little bit more guaranteed money. I'm actually a little bit disappointed for some reason that I can't explain .. I think the allure of Colin Kaepernick was in that he had the potential to be much better than Smith, just without any of the guaranteed stability. Anyway, like I said, all is well ... except for the fact that we don't have a right guard. Starter or backup. Which is scary. Super scary. But I have faith. Onto the linkage!
