There’s a lot of buzz this morning that Alex Smith will sign a three-year contract extension with the 49ers soon.
And he very well may.
The buzz comes from a CBS 5 blog blurb by Dennis O’Donnell, in which he summarizes an interview between Smith and Kim Coyle, saying that reports of Smith requesting a five-year contract are “completely false.” Those are the only two quoted words in the blurb.
I found the video of the interview on YouTube, and for the life of me I can’t find the moment when Smith says those two words, nor when he addresses the length of the contract. Maybe Smith talked about those things with Coyle off the record.
Here’s the video of the interview. KPIX uploaded it to YouTube yesterday, but I can’t tell where or when it took place.
