2011 NFL Free Agency: San Francisco 49ers Re-Sign Alex Smith

Multiple people are reporting on Twitter that the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to terms with Alex Smith on a 1-year contract. I have to assume this means the 9ers are out of the race for Matt Hasselbeck.  Again, if Hasselbeck is the guy that the Titans want, it is good news whenever a team that needs a QB signs someone other than Hasselbeck because it drives the price down.

The way I see it the only team still hanging around out there that needs a veteran QB is the Minnesota Vikings, and a lot of people are reporting that they are in trade talks with the Washington Redskins for Donovan McNabb.

I guess you could throw the Miami Dolphins in the mix, but I haven't seen anything that said they were interested in Hasselbeck.

I know the Titans QB situation is a little rough, but look at it this way, we could be the Seahawks.  They are going to enter training camp with a three-way battle between Tavaris Jackson, Matt Leinart and Charlie Whitehurst.  Good luck with that.
