A lot can happen between now and the start of the league year on March 12, but there are few NFL players about whom there has been more speculation recently than current San Francisco 49ers backup QB Alex Smith. And though there are several destinations that could use the upgrade at QB that Smith would provide, the link between Smith and the Cleveland Browns is more than just casual speculation, according to what we've heard.
