Smith will sign a three-year, $15 million deal with the Eagles on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was most recently in San Francisco, where poor quarterback play limited him to 110 receptions for 930 yards over his two-year stint with the 49ers. He will now join a more promising situation in Philadelphia with Carson Wentz directing the offense. The Eagles lacked a true deep threat in 2016, but got exactly that in Smith. The veteran wideout has recorded a touchdown of at least 50 yards in each of his six NFL seasons, and should open things up down the field for Wentz and a Philadelphia offense that was 24th in the league in passing yards per game last year.

The Ravens are interested in reuniting with Smith, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was released following a pair of disappointing seasons in San Francisco, with his value seemingly at a low point even though he's only 28 years old. This could make him an ideal candidate for a cap-strapped Ravens team that originally selected Smith in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The speedy wideout had 767 or more receiving yards in each of his four seasons in Baltimore, providing big-armed Joe Flacco with a downfield threat. If Smith signs with the Ravens, his presence could make fellow speedster Mike Wallace expendable.

Smith will be released by the 49ers, NFL Network's Steve Smith Sr. reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's anticipated split from the 49ers is hardly surprising, as he was reported to have been placed on the trading block during this past season. After signing a five-year, $40 million deal with San Francisco back in 2015, Smith has gone on to catch just 53 passes for 930 yards and seven touchdowns in 28 games since. If the 28-year-old is indeed released in the near future, he would figure to receive decent interest on the open market as a veteran wideout who proved plenty productive during his first four seasons, when the quarterback play he received with the Ravens far surpassed anything he got with the 49ers.

Smith (concussion) has been cleared for activity and will be ready to go for the start of offseason workouts, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith ended the 2016 campaign on injured reserve due to a concussion and finished yet another disappointing season in San Francisco with 20 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns across 12 games played. Now free of concussion symptoms, he'll certainly benefit from having a full offseason unhampered by injury concerns, especially with a new head coach in town that will install a new offensive system.

Smith (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith ends his season with just 20 catches for 267 yards and three touchdowns. With him out for San Francisco's final two contests, Jeremy Kerley will move to the top of the team's depth chart at wide receiver.

Smith (concussion) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers are merely playing the waiting game with Smith, who hasn't stepped on the practice field since sustaining a concussion in Week 14. Until he makes an appearance, a return date is nearly impossible to peg down due to the murky nature of such injuries. With the loss of Quinton Patton (foot) for the season, the 49ers' receiving corps has nary a reliable option among its healthy bodies, including Jeremy Kerley, Rod Streater, Aaron Burbridge, and Chris Harper.

Smith (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Falcons, The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith took a hard hit to the head during last Sunday's loss to the Jets, which kept him out of practice this week. The wideout will remain sidelined Sunday, leaving the 49ers without the top receiver on their depth chart.

Smith (concussion) missed Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's progress through the concussion protocol will determine his activity level on a daily basis. There's no telling when non-contact work will become a part of his regimen, but his head injury may be on the serious side after he was carted from the field Sunday versus the Jets. Expect some clarification on his status as the week continues.

Smith (concussion) did not take part in Tuesday's practice, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Smith is seemingly still dealing with symptoms of the concussion he suffered Sunday, he was at least able to attend Tuesday's practice and observe from the side. If not before, the 49ers will provide an official update on Smith's health heading into Week 15 following their first official practice session of the week Wednesday.

Smith won't return to Sunday's outing against the Jets due to a concussion.

EDGE Analysis

Smith remained on the turf after coming down on his head and shoulder during an attempted catch. Carted off the field thereafter, his return to game action will now be subject to the concussion protocol. With Vance McDonald also leaving Sunday with a shoulder injury, the 49ers' remaining top receiving options are Jeremy Kerley and Quinton Patton.
