Before it was reported by the Denver Post I am proud to say I reported on this site the Dolphins were negotiating a contract with Alex Smith. Now I tell you negotiations continue through the night & are ongoing. It does not stop there, according to a source (I know this website hates the word, but bare with me) the fact Miami is throwing big money at Smith is a clear sign that indeed both side are interested in each other and speculation of leverage by fans & pundits that Smith is using Miami or Miami was using Smith is not true. Smith could very well take the deal Miami is offering & could land with the Dolphins.
There is more, the feeling in San Francisco (like every team that has hosted Manning) is they are about to land Manning, but I am told that the relation between Alex Smith & the 49ers has gotten so bitter that Smith & SanFran might not make up even if they fail to land Manning. Cisco is high on Kaepernick and if Smith parts & Manning chooses another team, Harbaugh is ready to make Kaepernick the starter. It would take a deal close to what buttfumble got to persuade Smith from leaving if SanFran misses on Manning & the 49ers don't want to tie themselves long term to Alex, they believe Colin is the QB of the future.
