49ers Exercise Aldon Smith’s 5th year Option


Despite earlier reports from Adam Schefter weeks ago that the 49ers would not pick up Aldon Smith’s fifth year option, the 49ers have in fact exercised Aldon Smith’s $9.75 million fifth year option.

Smith’s salary for 2015 will only be guaranteed if he happen to get injured this coming season and only if under the 49ers’ supervision.

Smith’s 2015 salary will become fully guaranteed if he’s on the roster on the first day of the next league year … March 11th, 2015.
