Smith is expected to sign a five-year, $26.5 million contract with the 49ers on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith led the Raiders with 103 tackles last season, and added an interception and two forced fumbles. The seventh-year linebacker has had some problems in pass coverage, but will still be a major boost to a run defense that was atrocious in 2016. The 49ers surrendered a whopping 165.9 rushing yards per game last season, good for dead last in the NFL.
