News: Smith is strongly considering retirement, CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Smith was known to be pondering retirement this offseason, but with Monday's news that teammate Patrick Willis is likely to hang up his cleats, Smith may very well follow suit. The 35-year-old has battled numerous injuries in recent seasons, which contributed toward some career-low totals for him during the 2014 campaign.

News: Smith - who missed Sunday's season finale against Arizona - finished the 2014 season with 43 tackles (28 solo), five sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Impact: The 35-year-old lineman turned in his worst tackle totals of his entire career and is pondering retirement heading into the offseason. He has dealt with several injuries over the past few seasons and his body may be breaking down after 14 seasons in the NFL. Several teammates have expressed interest in convincing Smith not to retire, but the decision will ultimately be his. Even if he were to come back in 2015, he likely wouldn't be an every-down player anymore.
