The San Francisco 49ers are in the Super Bowl. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is their quarterback of the present and the future. With that in mind, it’s not too surprising that news has come out that Alex Smith will ask for his release.
Alex Smith was the starter this season to begin the year. And, to his credit, he did quite well. But when Colin Kaepernick replaced him when he got injured, the Niners never looked back.
Where will the Alex Smith release eventually land the QB? There are a lot of teams that need a quarterback. One such team is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since the Jaguars say they don’t want Tim Tebow, a player like Alex Smith could be the answer.
As for the Niners, look for them to keep Colin Kaepernick as their quarterback for a long, long time.
