49ers to pick up 5th year option on Aldon Smith

People who think the 49ers are not going to pick up the 5th year option on Aldon Smith are clearly disconnected from reality. There is no waiting until the last minute to make this decision as has been reported by different media folk. The decision has already been made. Baalke made it very clear last week that Aldon is here to stay long term. Picking up the 5th year option is the best financial decision that can be made here for the 49ers. That doesn't mean they won't cut him at some point if he continues to make poor decision. What it means is that we can expect Aldon wearing the Red and Gold for a long time.

My source? Common sense.
