After serving a nine-game suspension a year ago for violating the NFL's personal-conduct and substance-abuse policy, Smith returned and only tallied two sacks. 

The time off followed by sub-par performances has ignited Smith on the practice field thus far, according to general manager Trent Baalke. 

"He’s probably in as good a shape as he’s been in a long time," Baalke said, via the San Jose Mercury News. "He’s starting to develop into a leader out there, which is good to see and been a pleasure to watch."

Baalke knows that Smith has an uphill climb in repairing his image. But while Smith attempts to do so, Baalke wanted the San Francisco media to know that Smith is doing what he can to improve ont he playing field.

With 49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith contemplating retirement, coach Jim Tomsula said the team has enough depth along the defensive line to alleviate the potential loss, reports the Bay Area News Group.

The guy gets to 12 years in the NFL and he's at about a 92-percent rep count playing defensive line, you better start making preparations. So that started a while ago."

Tomsula added that he will not rush Smith into a decision.

"The guy's played a lot of football, right? He's obviously near and dear to my heart," Tomsula said. "I'm not going there. He can go do his thing with his family. We'll get to it. We will.”

News
Was the statistical slide experienced by one-time 49ers standout tight end Vernon Davis in 2014 a one-year wonder or downward trend? Davis is working to increase the chance that it is the former.

Davis has told the team website that he has placed a great emphasis this offseason on a strength and conditioning program. He had skipped that last year to concentrate on landing a new contract, but has since put aside that distraction.

"I'm here this year because I want to get better," he said. "I want to win. I want to develop some chemistry amongs my teammates and get to know guys. There are a lot of new guys here and you just never know when this game is over for you." He added that he wanted to give football "all I can give it."

Davis caught just 26 passes for a career-low 245 yards last year.
