49ers Not Sold On Alex Smith For The Long Haul?

Matt Maiocco of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area tweets that $7.5 million of Alex Smith’s base salary is only guaranteed should he still be on the roster through April 1st 2013.

Smith’s contract did not include a signing bonus while he was only guaranteed $1 million for 2013.

It will be interesting to see how the organization evaluates Colin Kaepernick’s future role going into the next season as the team has the option to drop Alex Smith before this date to save on  cap space.
