Hopefully this isn't another "Chip Kelly to the Browns!" thing. Jay Glazer is reporting that the 49ers and Chiefs have a done deal for Alex Smith, although it can't be announced for two weeks. Tim Kawakami on Twitter says that the 49ers will get a second-rounder this year and a similar pick in 2014. So the 49ers have 15 draft picks now for 2013. That should be interesting.

Per Peter King, Brady gets three years, $27 million, but a lot of his salary is fully guaranteed going forward. Well, you can't accuse him of not putting the team before himself. Or of having a bigger contract than Mark Sanchez.

He’s not big. He’s not fast. Yet, he’s the most sophisticated runner between the tackles I have seen this year.

No player has more at stake during his orthopedic evaluation at the combine this week than Marcus Lattimore.

Greetings, draftniks! Day Two of the Combine featured lots of quarterback press conferences, and there are no Robert Griffin or Andrew Luck types in this draft when it comes to sounding charismatic and impressive at the podium, for whatever that's worth. Also, Jim Harbaugh is an odd dude.

Andy Benoit and I are running around Indy trying to meet with coaches and low-level front office people, rather than generally hovering around the media room. So instead of FO-only combine reports this year, we decided to just depend on the dependable Mike Tanier to do the dependable Mike Tanier thing of finding humor and one or two actual comments of interest within the dependably repetitive day-long parade of coaches and general managers refusing to give the media any details about "THE PROCESS."

There are a lot of complicated questions surrounding Jones' cervical spinal stenosis. Dr. Jene Bramel's Second Opinion blog dives addresses them all.

Forgot to post this yesterday, due to Daddy Duty. The ages of quarterback prospects, why it matters, and 120 hours in the life of Titus Young. Also at Sports on Earth: my wide receiver Top Fives continue with the Dolphins, and the Jets should be up by Wednesday.

Lane Johnson and D.J. Fluker were selected high in the draft, but both have troubling flaws in pass protection according to Word of Muth.
