NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that the 49ers are “focused” on addressing Alex Smith‘s contract rather than pursuing soon-to-be free agent Peyton Manning.
Jerry Rice mentioned that he would like to the 49ers sign Manning but Jim Harbaugh has been adamant that they would re-sign Smith.
La Canfora also mentions that San Francisco has “an offer on the table” and they’re just waiting for Smith to sign it.
Manning’s availability actually helps the 49ers leverage with Smith, not that they really need a whole lot in this instance.
