According to a source, Smith provided the 49ers with a list of preferred teams, and Kansas City was at or near the top. Trent Baalke, the 49ers G.M., said last week that he recently had dinner with Smith to discuss options.
Smith’s departure would put the 49ers in the market for quarterback depth. Scott Tolzien, a second-year player who never has played in a regular-season game, is the only other quarterback on the current roster.
