SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Aldon Smith is officially a 49er.
The former Missouri Tigers defensive end has come to terms with San Francisco as training camp begins in the bay area. Smith signed a four-year deal with an option for a fifth-year.
The 49ers see Smith as a pass-rushing linebacker instead of a defensive end. The Raytown, Missouri native led the Big 12 Conference with 11.5 sacks as a freshman. He recorded just seven sacks in an injury plagued seasons as a sophomore.
