Alex Smith headed to Jacksonville?-- Wed Jan 30 9:55 pm --
Jaguars among possible destinations for 49ers' former starter
There is a possibility that the San Francisco 49ers will release or trade quarterback Alex Smith in the 2013 offseason, and many feel like the Jacksonville Jaguars should and will be interested. By all indications the Jaguars are going to be bringing in competition at the quarterback position, but someone like Alex Smith might not really add much of anything that they don't already have, especially given what he may cost to acquire.

FF Today's Take:The Blaine Gabbert experiment may have run its course. The second-year quarterback was slightly more effective in 2012 than in his rookie season but he still has a ways to go before he can even be considered even an average NFL quarterback. Smith could feasibly be his replacement.
