Marvel Smith Talks Heat Up

The Next Mr Glass?

The Next Mr Glass?

Matt Maiocco is reporting that talks between free agent offensive tackle Marvel Smith and the 49ers are heating up.

Smith met with the team last week and underwent a physical. Smith has played just 17 games in the past two seasons. Can we say Mr. Glass II?

It appears that the 49ers really want Smith and Smith wants to make a return to the Bay Area.

Looks as if something is to happen, should happen in the next couple days.

The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.

    This is a fancy new setup you got here. Nice!

  • Niner Pundit

    Bobby…thanks. We are still working on lots of things. Gotta get it more Niner colors (at least the red)

    Trying to breakdown the sections of the site better. Also added a new section called Fans Voice where anyone can submit their own articles to the site.

    I saw that Fans Voice section, very cool. We appreciate the hard work!

    i would think we would cut Jennings after we bring in Smith. Now you can say mr glass 2 if you’d like but smith will more then likely not cost that much as his injury history probably won’t get him to much of a deal money wise. And i’ve read a few places that our coaches really like andre smith OT from bama.. while his attitude sucks and he battles weight issues with singletary at the helm i dont think his ass would do anything but straighten up bc he would have no choice but to.. also heard we have looked really hard at Qb Pat White .. maybe a 2nd round or 3rd round pick. if the rumors about us being interested in Vick were true at one point.. then maybe team is looking for a QB with a little running ability.. just wondering what others think of that.. as from he pro day and combine he did throw the ball really well..

    Yeah, Pundjt, I like this setup. I thought the front page was a bit confusing, until I saw the headings that break everything down into News, Commentary, Featured, etc. Now, I will just use that to go where I want to. Nice. Hopefully the redesign will get people posting here again.

    Oh, and on the topic of this actual news, Marvel Smith is a decent tackle, but has had injury issues. Sounds like Jonas Jennings revisited to me. I’m hoping we still use a high draft pick on a good tackle.

    Rob I’ve been a bit out of the loop, had some personal shit to take care of. But now I’m back and will be putting a buttload of effort into the site, getting it back to where it should be.

    Barrows is reporting that the Marvel Smith situation could be resolved today.

    Marvel Smith is signed and Jonas Jennnings is cut.
