What would you do if you were Alex Smith right now?
The Niners betrayed you, and they still won’t budge from their low-ball offer, it seems.
But you can’t get a better deal from another team in free agency. You’re out of luck.
1. Rationalize the Peyton Manning Saga as “business” and accept the Niners three-year deal, and move on professionally.
2. Refuse to return to the Niners on principle. You are a man of integrity – you’ve demonstrated that your whole career. The Niners front office has not acted with integrity towards you this offseason. Find a team that will. I’m wealthy – it’s not about money. It’s about integrity.
If I were Smith, I’d go with option No. 2.
