Alex Smith Has Offer on the Table, 49ers Have No Interest in Signing Peyton Manning

On Wednesday the San Francisco 49ers said an offer has been made to Alex Smith in attempt to re-sign the quarterback.  According to, the 49ers also indicated they have no interest in signing Peyton Manning who was released by the Colts this week.

It is not clear when Smith received the contract offer but this is good news in retaining him for the future.  We all know what Smith did last season and in the playoffs, which is reason one number he is the right man under center for the 49ers.  If Smith truly wants to stay with the 49ers, it is only a matter of time before he is re-signed.

Publicly declaring the 49ers are not interested in signing Manning stops the questions from fans that the team needs to sign him.  Now with a contract offer made to Smith, we know the 49ers are going to stick with him and let other teams duke it out for Manning.  This is the right move for the 49ers and gives the team continuity heading into the season, provided Alex Smith signs the contract.
