Alex Smith Negotiating With Dolphins

Mar 19, 2012 6:51 AM EST

According to league sources, the Dolphins and Alex Smith are in negotiations on a contract.

The assumption was that Smith would re-sign with the 49ers, but he has flirted with Miami ever since San Francisco was revealed to be pursuing Peyton Manning.

Smith visited with the Dolphins over the weekend. Manning reportedly turned down Miami and they lost Matt Flynn, who joined the Seahawks.

The two sides are believed to be talking about a multi-year deal worth about $8 million annually.
