Around the league
• 49ERS: Quarterback Alex Smith has signed a three-year deal with San Francisco that will pay him $8 million per season with $16.5 million guaranteed. A person with knowledge of the contract details said Smith’s deal can pay him up to $33 million.
• BENGALS: A person familiar with the negotiations says former Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has agreed to a deal with Cincinnati, which needs someone to replace Cedric Benson. Green-Ellis spent four seasons with New England, carrying 181 times for 667 yards in 2011 with 11 touchdowns. Various reports had him agreeing to a three-year deal.
• SAINTS: New Orleans and free agent defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley have agreed on a five-year contract. Bunkley spent last season with the Denver Broncos, appearing in all 16 regular season games and starting 13. He was credited with 43 tackles during the regular season and also had a sack and forced fumble during the Broncos‘ two playoff games.
• BILLS: Buffalo continued to target improving their pass rush in free agency by signing defensive end Mark Anderson. Listed at 6 feet 4 inches and 255 pounds, Anderson has 35 1/2 sacks in six seasons, including 10 last year with the New England Patriots. Safety Bryan Scott also agreed to re-sign with Buffalo.
