49ers Bring Back QB Alex Smith

ESPN.com’s John Clayton is reporting that San Francisco 49ers have re-signed QB Alex Smith to a¬†one-year deal worth around $5 million.

49ers new head coach Jim Harbaugh stayed in contact with Smith throughout the offseason and even distributed a copy of the teams playbook to so that he was familiar with their new offense. I found it interesting that the San Francisco was linked to Matt Hasselbeck so much in recent days because of the interest that they had already shown in Alex Smith.

It will be interesting to see if Smith can finally show signs of improving after five season in the NFL.
