Default kFc with a shot at yet another 49er cast off QB?

kFc could/should be in the running for another 49er QB cast off like Steve Deberg, Joe Montana, and Steve Bono.

Looks like Alex Smith wants his release. In a QB starved draft this year it might be a break for a team in desperate need of a game manager at QB who can run a West Coast type system.

Alex Smith has said and done all the right things since unceremoniously being replaced by Colin Kaepernick in the San Francisco 49ers' starting lineup. He has been the model teammate and a supportive backup. Now, it may be in his best interest to do something he probably imagined as unthinkable back in October.

A ProFootball talk report Monday indicated Smith is expected to seek his release before the start of free agency. Due to earn $8.5 million in 2013, with $1 million guaranteed now and the balance guaranteed as of April 1, the decision would allow Smith to be a factor in the beginning of the free-agent signing period.

A starting quarterback of a first-place team in Week 10. Asking for his walking papers three months later?

The unthinkable actually makes quite a lot of sense.

It wouldn't mean that Andy Reid wouldn't hand pick his guy to roll with in the draft. Smith isn't a world beater, but he can come in and probably make the team play more respectable than Cassdizzy. E.J. Manuel to the Chiefs in the fourth round. BOOK IT.
