Smith, 49ers agree to six-year deal

According to a league source, the 49ers">49ers and Justin Smith reached an agreement on a six-year, $45 million deal that includes $20 million dollars in guaranteed money. Smith, who has 43.5 career sacks, was regarded as the top pass rusher available on the market despite totaling just two and a half sacks a season ago.

By adding Smith the the line up, the 49ers add another quality pass rusher to the line up. Smith will join former first round selection Manny Lawson, and last season's top free agent signee Tully-Banta Cain as edge rushers in the 49ers' 3-4 scheme.
