Reportedly, QB Alex Smith is "unhappy" that "his team" is talking to Peyton Manning.
1. You're a free agent. You don't currently have a team. Your former team no longer has a starting QB.
2. Manning would be an upgrade from you in every way except age. He has the talent to take them over the hump you never will. If they can sign him, you have no value to them. It's in their best interest to try to improve their team.
Tim Tebow, the current starting QB of the Denver Broncos, has a right to gripe, Alex Smith does not.
