It's official ... sort of. The 49ers today announced two trades. One occurred yesterday when the team agreed to send the second of its two sixth-round picks to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for receiver Anquan Boldin.
The second occurred last month, and it ends a roller coaster, eight-year run in San Francisco for Alex Smith, the player the 49ers chose No. 1 overall in 2005. The 49ers announced they received from Kansas City an "undisclosed" draft pick (it's the Chiefs' second-round selection, No. 34 overall) as well as a conditional pick in next year's draft. The trade won't be executed until Smith passes a physical.
"We would like to thank Alex for his contributions to the 49ers organization over the past eight years," general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "He is a true professional who represented the 49ers with class on and off the field."
