Money? Agree. Opportunity? Nix wants to draft a long term QB in the draft before he leaves.

Here's another angle:

Smith sucked in SF before Harbaugh came on board. Harbaugh installed a West Coast offense with a power run game. He called more runs than passes his last two years, with lots of multiple tight end sets.

Marrone wants to install the Saints offense, which combines WCO and downfield passing in the Erhardt-Perkins style. It's a passing offense.

Smith's never had success in a passing offense, not even in college. Square peg, round hole?
