49ers | Alex Smith's future a business decision

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday, Feb. 5, that he has great respect for QB Alex Smith, but indicated that the team owes him no special favors when it comes to where he's playing next season. Smith wants to return to a starting role, and the team could give him a fresh start by trading or releasing him; however, Harbaugh said that would be a business decision, not a personal one. "I don't think any player has those wishes granted when they're under contract," Harbaugh said when asked whether Smith had earned additional consideration. "And everything's different and every scenario is unique. Certainly something that we're not going to delve into and get into specifics at this point."
