The San Francisco 49ers may or may not have a deal in place to trade QB Alex Smith, but the team could just be trying to drum up interest and draw other teams to the table. The Niners need to find a way to increase value for the QB, rather than just cutting him in March and allowing a team like the Chiefs to get him without giving anything up in return.
