Default Why do people think that Torey Smith will be available???

Torrey Smith excited about Shanahan's plan





New 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan figures to bring a more aggressive mindset to the teams offense. Now, its a matter of finding the right players to plug into the right spots.

Torrey Smith could find a situation similar to what he enjoyed during most of his four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens< Matt Maiocco of CSN Bayarea reports. In 2014, Smith caught 11 touchdown passes before leaving for the 49ers as a free agent.

Its not rocket science. Football is football. Plays are plays, Smith said. Its the way they scheme it up and put it together. The way I watch it from afar, he (Shanahan) tailors it to peoples strengths, which is always a plus. So Im excited to see what his plan is for us.

Smith caught a 53-yard touchdown pass against Buffalo for his only reception that covered 40 yards or more last season.

The offense, I have experience with it, Smith said. Im interested to see how he teaches it. You just have to execute. But with his track record, it kind of speaks for itself. Im excited for him to have that opportunity. Hes a young guy. I feel like he could fit in in our locker room. He looks that young. He has a proven track record and he knows what hes doing. Its his time, so Im excited for him.

Smith has a scheduled salary-cap figure of $9.475 million for the 2017 season, but the 49ers are comfortably under the salary cap with an estimated $80 million in cap room heading into the new league year.

Smith has way under preformed his contract, thus the thought he will be cut. Who knows different group of folks at the 49ers now so they could keep him. I don't think they have any cap issues.

I'd like him. He's a heck of a lot better than anybody else outside that we have.

You've got a point there I guess. I really have no idea how much that you pay players anymore, especially after the contracts that we dished out last year about this time.
