Reports out of the NFL say that the 49ers will suspend Aldon Smith to start the season and according to Adam Schefter, they are not expected to pick up Smith’s fifth year option.

For those wondering if the 49ers will release Aldon Smith, the most likely answer is no. Ian Rapoport reported that the 49ers do not plan to cut Aldon this season, who is due to make $3 million guaranteed.

Smith is facing three felony gun charges as well as a DUI charge that led to a rehab stay last year. He’ll face those charges in one trial set to begin on April 29. Smith’s arrest for the false report of a bomb threat came after the judge in his upcoming trial warned Smith to keep his nose clean.

According to a source a league source, the 49ers have been shopping running back LaMichael James. The 49ers used a second round pick on LaMike in the 2012 draft.

The 49ers hoped he would be able to spell Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter, but with the addition of Marcus Lattimore last year and outside of a fumble in the Super Bowl and well that’s about it. LaMichael has just been taking up space on the bench and the roster.

This trade talk shouldn’t come as a surprise, if you follow LaMichael on twitter you would have seen all the bitching he did about playing time, etc. But of course if you ask LaMichael nothing on his twitter is about football.

Anyway not sure what the 49ers can get for LaMichael, but it’s obvious he isn’t in the future. Now let’s see what LaMichael has to say about the trade rumors.

Reports are Aldon Smith was detained by security at LAX after being ‘belligerent’ and telling them he had a bomb. Here is what was released:

“At approximately 1400 hrs, a 25-year-old male resident of San Jose, California, was going through Terminal 1 screening and was randomly selected for a secondary screening,” Sgt. Karla Ortiz said in a statement.

“The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding towards the gate area.

“Los Angeles Airport Police made contact with him at the gate and he was positively identified as the person in question. Once again the male subject became uncooperative and he was detained and taken into custody by Airport Police and is currently being transported to LAPD for booking.”

I’m not really sure what to say, but not sure how longer the 49ers can put up with his antics.

Update: Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee was the first to report what the report from the Miami PD detailed. Here is a snippet from Barrows article.

According to the report, the incident occurred April 1 when a woman went to Lockette’s apartment in Miami at 9 p.m. Kaepernick and Patton were there, and the woman made drinks and served shots to the players. She was also told “to drink the shots she had to “hit” the bong which contained marijuana,’ the report said.

The report continues to say that the woman felt light headed and went to a bedroom where she was later joined by Kaepernick, with whom she had a sexual relationship in the past. Kaepernick then left the bedroom. The two did not have sex, she said in the report. The report says that Patton and Lockette peeked inside the bedroom and that the woman yelled at them to get out.

According to the report, the woman does not remember anything about the night after that. She woke up in a hospital bed not knowing how she got there. The woman, whose name is redacted, reported the incident to police on April 3.

According to TMZ Sports, Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for possible sexual assault. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the incident took place earlier at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month.

The investigation is in the ‘beginning stages’ and no charges have been filed at this time.

The 49ers released the following statment:

‘The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.’
