Kevin Lynch broke news this afternoon. Citing a league source, Lynch reports the Niners offered Alex Smith a three-year contract worth $24 million. What’s more, according to the source Smith wants to change agents, too.
His current agent, Tom Condon, also represents Peyton Manning, the quarterback the Niners seem to really want. Condon is doing a great job pumping up the price tag for Manning, but he doesn’t seem to be doing anything for Smith.
If Smith does indeed change agents, it could mean he’s thinking a few things:
1. His offer from Trent Baalke is insulting.
2. Things between the Niners and Manning are serious.
3. Who’s left on Smith’s side? Is anyone on his side?
