Niners GM wants Justin Smith back another year; Letting him think about it

Justin Smith the veteran defensive end from San Francisco wanted to hang up his cleats, but his General Manager is not ready to just let him walk away. Trent Baalke said he wants Smith back badly.

“Like any player at this stage of his career, he’s going … what I told him was we’re not even going to talk,” Baalke told reporters Thursday, per CSN Bay Area. “When I left it with him, the next two or three weeks, ‘Justin, go home, take care of your family, see how you feel, and at some point in the next month, three weeks to a month, I’ll reach out and we’ll talk.’

“And I think he’s earned that right. His nickname obviously is ‘Cowboy,’ if he’s going to saddle up again, he’ll know. That decision will be his and his alone, and we’ll certainly work through that with him when the time is right.”
