INDIANAPOLIS (CBS Sports) – There is going to be at least one significant trade this offseason. This much we know.
The San Francisco 49ers will trade Alex Smith, and, according to league sources, the deal has effectively already been agreed to. No trades can be official until the league year begins March 12, so nothing can be finalized now, but sources said the two teams involved have the key terms in place at this point, and will finalize it down the road.
Reporting from the scouting combine in Indianapolis, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora said, at this point, he doesn’t know the identity of the other team involved, but the 49ers have made it clear they are moving Smith and he will not be a part of the team this year.
