Today, San Francisco 49ers DE Justin Smith had a rare conversation with the beat writers and while he feels healthier than ever, his playing days may soon come to an end. When asked if ‘Cowboy’ will be playing next season, he said, “I haven’t given it thought. It will be something to think about after the season.”
Smith went on to say that the 49ers are right where they need to be to make a run at the playoffs. “I’m gearing up for a playoff run here. Let the chips fall where they may. I’m not going to learn any new technique at this stage. See what happens.”
With the 49ers’ season hanging by a thread they will need to win out the rest of their games as the playoffs are just around the corner.
