I ll be quite honest, shocked was my initial reaction when I heard Matt Maiocco behind me yell, Whoa, Jimmie Ward, as the 49ers first-round pick. I said, Are you kidding? I then directed my attention to the television screen and apparently the 49ers insider was not and neither were the 49ers.

Justin Smith gets two-year extension from 49ers Justin Smith was hoping this wasn’t going to be his last year with the 49ers. Consider that problem solved. According to Matt Maiocco of, the 49ers signed Smith to a two-year contract extension today, which locks him up through the 2015 season. According to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal, Smith recently split his agents with CAA. He’s not listed with another agent on the NFLPA database, which suggests there’s either a lag in the paperwork or he did the deal himself. Either way, it keeps a valuable member of their defense in the fold for a few more years. The 49ers looked like a different team when he was out with an injury last year, with Aldon Smith in particular disappearing without his bodyguard. He was scheduled to make $7.5 million in base salary this year, the final year of his contract, so the move likely created some salary cap room for the 49ers as well.

Jonathan Goodwin has accepted a pay reduction and that will likely mean he sticks with the San Francisco 49ers this season. The veteran center has his base salary reduced from $3.7 million to $2.5 million, according to Matt Maiocco of Comcast Bay Area, a pay cut of $1.2 million. In turn, the 49ers guaranteed $1 million of his base salary. The move reduced Goodwin’s salary cap from just more than $5 million to roughly $3.8 million and will help the team fit in remaining draft picks under the cap. Goodwin joined the team in 2011 and has made 70 consecutive starts in the NFL. At 34, it is fair to wonder if this will be his final season with the club. THA TRUTH

Matt Maiocco says that the 49ers have 1.1 million dollars in cap space currently. When the Alex Smith trade becomes official, that will clear an additional 8.5 million, and cutting David Akers will save the team 3 million dollars more. How should the 49ers use that money?
Should the 49ers ship Alex Smith to the AFC? Matt Maiocco argues San Francisco shouldn't hesitate to deal him within the NFC West.
“Humble” Moss repeats his claim that he’s the best ever “Everybody is going to have their opinion,” Moss said, via Matt Maiocco of “I do not live on numbers. I really do not. If you sit here and just said, ‘Who is the greatest running back?’ Statistically it is Emmitt Smith. People would say Barry Sanders, Gale Sayers or Jim Brown. [But] their numbers do not match Emmitt Smith.” Basically, then, Moss thinks that in the end it’s a subjective assessment. “You make your own judgment,” Moss said. “You really do. I know what I think. I am not going to sit up here and tell you how to look at it and how to judge it. I think when it comes to going out there, making plays and helping the team do the things that they are able to do to win the game, I think I am the greatest receiver ever. Point blank. Next question.” But he continued, pointing to the impact his comments made as proof of his claim.
Comcast SportsNet Bay Area REALLY needs to hire better people. Honestly I DO NOT CARE what Joe Nedney a kicker (soccer player) has to say about the niners. It means absolutely nothing to me. They keep saying Matt Maiocco knows the most about the niners. BS, I know more than that dork. If comcast hired me, ill bet Jim Harbaugh would actually talk to me and not give them 1 word answers like matt gets. 1 day I will take your job Matt Maiocco.
