49ers’ offer to Smith still stands

The 49ers’ offer to free-agent QB Alex Smith remains on the table and has not been lowered or revoked, league sources said Monday. The sources said the team is confident Smith will opt to stay in San Francisco.

Smith visited Miami and is in contact with the Dolphins, but that move is being perceived around the league as a play for leverage. Other agents and GMs believe that the 49ers’ offer of $8 million per year is fair. San Francisco also presents the best chance for Smith to prosper on the field and off, with a system and roster suited to him and relatively weak divisional competition.
