49ers Sign McDonald, Smith and Wragge

Posted by Scott Kegley on July 29, 2011 – 3:38 PM

The San Francisco 49ers today announced they have signed DT Ray McDonald to a five-year deal. QB Alex Smith and G/C Tony Wragge were both signed to one-year deals.

McDonald (6-3, 290) enters his fifth NFL season after being selected in the third round (97th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft. He has played in 56 games (nine starts), registering 155 tackles, five sacks, one interception (returned for a touchdown), two fumble recoveries (one returned for a touchdown) and seven passes defensed. McDonald has also tallied two blocked field goals and one blocked extra point.

In 2010, McDonald played in all 16 games, notching 57 tackles, one interception and two passes defensed. In 2009, he recorded 29 tackles, a career-high three sacks, two fumble recoveries (returning one for a touchdown), one blocked field goal and one blocked extra point. Since 2009, McDonald is one of only three NFL defensive linemen to score two touchdowns.

McDonald played in 15 games (9 starts) in 2008, registering a career-high 58 tackles, one sack and five passes defensed. As a rookie in 2007, he played in 9 games, notching 11 tackles and one sack.

The 26-year old native of Belle Glade, FL, starred collegiately at Florida.

Smith (6-4, 217) enters his seventh NFL season after being selected in the first round (1st overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. In 2010, he played in 11 games (10 starts), completing 204 of 342 passes for 2,370 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for an overall passer rating of 82.1. Smith had a passer rating of over 80.0 in seven of those contests, which included four games with a passer rating of over 90.0. He suffered a shoulder injury to his non-throwing arm midway through the season.

In 2009, Smith played in 11 games (10 starts), completing 225 of 372 passes for 2,350 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions for a passer rating of 81.5. In his first action in nearly two years due to injury, Smith took the field in the second half at Houston (10/25) and completed 15 of 22 passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns. He recorded a passer rating of over 95.0 in five contests.

Smith spent the entire 2008 season on Injured Reserve after re-injuring his throwing shoulder in practice three days prior to the season opener. He originally suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder three games into the 2007 season against the Seattle Seahawks after starting the year 2-0. He later battled through the injury before being placed on Injured Reserve.

In 2006, Smith became the first quarterback in 49ers history to take every snap over the course of a season. He finished the year completing 257 passes on 442 attempts for 2,890 passing yards with 16 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. A year prior, Smith became the first rookie to start at quarterback for the 49ers since QB Jim Druckenmiller (at StL, 9/7/97). Smith saw action in nine games with seven starts during his rookie campaign.

Wragge (6-4, 310) enters his seventh NFL season after originally entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2002 with the Arizona Cardinals. After spending his first two seasons in Arizona, he joined the 49ers during the 2005 season. Wragge has played in 68 games (15 starts).

Wragge has seen action at every position except right tackle throughout his career. In 2010, he played in 15 games, seeing action at center, right guard and left tackle as well as on special teams. Wragge saw action in 15 games, playing right guard and on special teams in 2009. In 2008, he played in all 16 games, starting the first 10 contests at right guard. In 2007, Wragge played in eight games, serving as a reserve offensive lineman. He saw action in 14 games (4 starts) in 2006, making two starts at left guard and two starts at center.

Following the 2005 season, Wragge was allocated to the Rhein Fire of NFL Europe, he played for current 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, who was the Fire’s head coach at the time.

The 32-year old native of Creighton, NE, played at New Mexico State, where he earned All-Sun Belt honors twice.

    All good signings. Give Alex another chance, Coach Harbaugh knows what he is doing. Alex, I know you are a smart guy (Econ major in 3 years). I saw you throw some awesome throws in practice, and you can play and come in the clutch with wins. Take all the negativity and channel it to come up big this year!
    Will be cheering for you buddy!

    I am anxious to see what the 49ers are going to do at the corner back position. Asomugh is now a eagle. We cut Nate Clements which was clearly our best corner back. I don’t no. I am sure Jim the new coach is a good coach and knows what he is doing. But i hjust think if the 49ers are going to be over .500 this season they need to pick up some veteran leadership type [players in free agency. Starting at corner back , all the way to the receiving core. Come on Jim. We trying to do something this year. The 49ers have way higher standards of play then what they have done the past 10 years. God bless this season. I am anxious to see what happens.

    Come on niner nation we have to show some faith in the new coaches and their new schemes that they will use. This includes the players that they feel fit the new needs. At least save the critisim for when it may be due. We want to win and the last few years the coaches, players, schemes,ect. have not been the answer so lets support the changes and hope it leads the team back to the playoffs! LETS GO NINERS!!

    This free agency should not come as a surprise.This organization proved its incompetence when it promoted Trent Baalke to GM. This guy has been here since 2005, and present for the sub-par 9er football during all that time – and management decided to promote him and stay with the status quo. Now we are seeing the brilliant results of this move, no imagination or aggresiveness. Michael lombardi was clearly the better choice, someone who could have come in and shook things up… but i guess we will never know.oh, and the fact i have to watch A. Smith at qb for another year is a complete joke. man, how nice would it be to be a eagle or jet fan, at least those organizations care about winning – and therefore the fans

    If there is anybody who knows anything about the quarterback position it is Harbaugh. He must see some potential there other whys he would not go there. They need to put some of the spread offense back into the playbook because that is where smith had sucess. I truely think that this will be a better year. Go NINERS

    Missouri-We were promised a nationwide search for a new GM, we got Balke. We are told the organization is serious about winning achampionship-we resign the biggest bust in franchise history in stead of going after an established veteran QB. One of our best offensive players is holding out. Our number one receiver is “Injured” and missing his third camp in a row. We are starting another season with another new HC, OC, DC, STC, with news systems. No more rebuilding! Win or go away! I love my team, but enough is enough and i am very discouraged by what i’ve seen so far. No moves this off season have shown any seriousness about winning now. (We have been rebuilding for the last decade)

Sorry Alex your a great guy with many skills but not for that team, You would be great with buffalo or NY Giants not the west coast offends. I will not watch my team go though pain another year so Good luck Niners I will see you guy in 2012 season , God willying God blees all of you.

    every off season we are the only team that thinks there set .even new england spends big money every year .we dont finish with a winning record since we drafted smith but yet we are set?we will not have a winning season under smith you dont have to be a expert to see that the BIGGEST BUST IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL,is a looser and always will be almost every player we cut because its not smiths fault becomes a star somewhere else.i been to every home game for 15 years and only 35 years old and im telling you the owners must us because the obviously dont care about the 9er faithfulls because now the cutting and not even replacing the people we lost.4 starter ready qbs available no offer?one thing i do know yorks dont reach into the pockets for anything except themselves.but we will now share a stadium im paying for higher ticket prices every year raider scum are going to pay half the price for my seats .on that note qb brett ratliff wr steve smith must adds.so goes the life of a niner fan another sub 500 season.

    about 10 years ago.. bill walsh was asked how do the 49ers return to the days of championships.. bill essentially said we must learn to draft good players with good character and let them grow in the 49er way of doing things.. i believe that is what the owner and baalke are doing.. we have alot of young players who have only been 49ers.. a new coach from stanford who has alot of solid ideas.. and a young qb.. a nice young line.. we sign franklin and let smith be there to start the season ala steve deberg and we can surprise some people.. i say let the coaches and management do their thing.. we are seriously going to surprise some people just like the bucs did last year with freeman.. get a winning mentality instead of a bunch of cast offs..

    Let’s not forget who’s getting paid the big bucks to make decisions. I’ll help you out, it’s definitely not you and your whining about alex. Just think for a second, short offseason requires a veteran retention. What exactly should have Jim done? Sign up some mystery QB from free agency that will magically make rainbows and wins shoot out his rear? We are in rebuild mode, and if another strategy is so easy, why aren’t you the head coach?

    And please do sell your tickets, or don’t bother buying any. I can’t stand hearing my own team get booed by its fans only to cheer minutes later when we get a TD (raiders game anyone?). If not, go become an eagles fan or something. Less stress on you, and I won’t have to hear you guys complain 24/7 like you know better.

    While I won’t deplore the new coaching staff, or even some of these signings, after watching season after season with Alex continuing to play inconsistent ball, to say the least, I can’t say I understand this move. Why resign him? Quite frankly, I don’t care what kind of physical abilities a person has, or what smarts he has, if the guy hasn’t shown he can win consistently in six years, he doesn’t deserve a seventh. Even making allowances for different coaches and schemes, six years is more than enough to show you can be consistent. Great QBs on bad teams will still show through, even if the rest of the team doesn’t. Alex, however nice and smart he might be, has consistently shown himself to be inconsistent, especially during the big games. It’s time to move on, for him and for us. We need a fresh start and so does he.

    The problem is that the 49ers are not willing to say they screwed up with the number one pick and move on so they keep bringing alex back. The good teams in the league like the pats, steelers, colts, eagles, packers will admit they messed up cut the player and move on. The 49ers are not willing to move on for some reason. I say start colin and see what happens

    I wish Alex Smith was little mastery, Alex is very predictable.He hes excellent arm,he can have good statistic and still loose game.For same people is that ,no reason to blame him.True is,that to this people,he newer accept him to be last QB
    for his carrier in 49ers division to be treat.Alex is smart person,but Alex is not smart player.Seam to me that,Alex is much smarter than rest of us,including Jim Harbaugh, and because high probability Alex injury,than what?Destroy drafted QB?Or Jim Harbaugh him self?And is what 49ers will be deal with.

    Man, the ‘Niners should have gone all-in for Nnamdi. They had the cap space. I wonder if they were a little gun-shy after the Nate Clements experience? I will say that I’m not as opposed to the re-signing of Alex Smith as some others here appear to be. I like that it’s a one year deal though, so let’s see.

    I’d really like to see them pursue a trade for Carson Palmer. For all of the posturing Mike Brown is doing, I have the feeling that if the right offer was presented, Palmer would be available.

    Everyone please give Harbaugh a chance with Alex, I know I can’t stand him either but if anyone can turn Alex’s carrer around it would be Harbaugh anyways it’s only with a one year contract. If were lucky enough Alex could get injured and then they could start Colin Kaepernick. Keep your heads up 49er fans it’s gonna get better because it sure can’t get much worse.

    Lets please go out and get cromatrie or asate samuel or how about both??? i would be elated if we could get two. Come on we have a “glaring need” at that position. We didnt draft for that position so lets go out in free agency and get someone who is a solid CB. I dont need great just solid.

    Disappointed, heartbroken, and mesmorized are the words that best describe how this life long 9er feels. Alex had an opportunity to demonstrate his ability to be a championship caliber quaterback and has not delivered. We made a mistake by drafting Smith instead of Rodgers, lets not continues this path of insanity. I will be at 49ers vs Cowboys this year, and I will wear my Rice throwback and will be glad to set foot in a stadium that had such a rich history. Sad thing is I will also feel sorrow at the present day condition of this once great team.

    Seriously? What is our front office doing, are these guys on crack when they sign players? Where are the big names being signed? Why is it that almost every team in the league is making big progressive moves but were the only team that seems as if were trying to go with the same exact roster we had last year, only this time were losing a lot of talent with the loss of spikes, and franklin.. It makes me sick in the stomach and irritates the hell out of me the way the front office are going about , I’ll always be a faithful , I love my niners no matter what but come on yo i want our team and our city to actually be mentioned in NFL network TV, i want the niners to be in the discussions for who is going to contend for a SB, I want our city and our team to make some noise in the league, and show the rest of the NFL that were no push over team filled with draft busts..

Lets Be Real The NFL Just Got Done With 4 1/2 Month Lockout Now Lets Also Keep In Mind The 2 Head Coaches Alex Smith Had Were Both Defensive Minded Coaches Now You Add Jim Harbaugh into the Mix Who is Offensive Minded and Also Has Played Quaterback in The NFL And Do We Forget That Jim Harbaugh Had Been In The Doghouse and struggled As a Quaterback with The Chicago Bears Playing for a Defensive Minded Coach in Mike Dikta who always wanted to Run The Ball and When Harbaugh Went to The Colts and Got With A Offensive Minded Coach He Became “Captain Comeback” My How Soon We forget So If anybody Can Develop Alex Smith into Finally Reach His Talents It’s Jim Harbaugh From a Professional and Personal Standpoint I Mean Yes U Could Of Traded for Kyle Orton or another Quaterback But The Team Would been Further Behind In Learning The Offense But Also U Win as 53 Players and You Lose as 53 Players it’s a Team Effort Yes I Agree The Talent is There Yes We Are Ready To Win The NFC WEST NOW! Yes The 49ers Can Be In Prime Position to Get Back to Glory But Rome Was Not Bult In a Day Let Jim Harbaugh and His Staff Do Their Job and Us as Fans Be Fans and Supportive Remember What Harbaugh Did In Just 3 Years In Stanford Everbody Just Chill Out and Let The 2011 NFL Season Play Out and Let The Chips Fall where They May I Stay In Red n Gold All Day GO 49ERS!!!!!!!

    I”ve never witnessed such negative, discouraging remarks and attitudes as you alleged “fans” display…surely you are not 49er fans! To be a “fan”(short for fanatic) is to have FAITH in the historical spirit of the NINERS…to believe that, despite serendipitous accidents (such as the injuries & 7 diff. OCs that Alex has to contend with), “our team” shall prevail…think of the few times we all have to admit that Alex truly shined…why not always? A coach who truly understands the complexities and nuances of the NFL QB can do wonders with an EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT athlete like Alex! Give Harbaugh and Smith a chance…seek to make contact w/ that spirit that characterizes “THE FAITHFUL”!

    All signings the niners needed for this years roster. Abrayo may be too expensive. They need to leave cap room to extend Gore’s contract. This is a bandaid/rebuilding year until the niners can make more moves next off season. And they may still make some other moves and signings this year.

Its getting frustrating to watch all these teams make big pushes for great players while the 9ers front office sits on their hands.

    I am a loyal fan since birth. I love the 49rs with all my heart, but lets face the truth people. You can’t magically fix years full of catastrophically bad coaching in one year. The biggest problem with signing a big name in the “free agent frenzy” is what I call the “Kansas City Royals Rule”. How do you draw amazing free agents like Nnamdi Asomugha, Jonathan Joseph, and the like when you have a horrible W/L record and a new coach? Major players in the free agent market rely on two major factors; money and success. We might have the money to sign these players, but when you have a brand new coaching staff, new training staff, and a team that hasn’t had a positive record in years, its incredibly difficult to draw the big names.

    As much as we are disheartened that we haven’t landed any big name free agents, we have to accept the fact that we will need to have a winning product on the field as well as the cash available for these stars. SO what is the upside? These free agents we have signed have not played under Harbaugh, so lets give them a shot and see what happens. Just remember, at one time there were people saying, “Who the heck is this Walsh guy?” So lets have faith and hope we can land one or two big names (PLEXICO AND OLIN KREUTZ would be awesome) and hope we can build for the future.

    GO NINERS!

    49ers must have big talents to,.if 49ers like to play better role in NFL.It will be helping to recruiting players in future and even helps in. to build new stadium.Probably 49ers avoiding it because,that mean spend more than anybody ales.But it is wroth be,because next season for same talent 49ers will be pay less.

    What are you talking about Dugovic, the 49ers have great talent, they have Josh Morgan, Frank Gore, Patrick Willis, Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, NaVorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Anthony Dixon, Ted Ginn Jr., Curtis Holcomb, Colin Kaepernick, Taylor Mays, Aldon Smith, Justin Smith, Reggie Smith, Delanie Walker, Isaac Sopoaga, and many others. I believe that Alex is going to do better then he has ever done. 49ers are going to have a great season. A lot of happy fans!

    Go 49ers……………….

    OK, So someone is allowing A SMITH to play tonight 8/12/2011. So LISTEN UP ALEX !!!!! Although I cannot be very supportive PLEASE, understand this. THIS is YOUR year to “SHINE” be a LEADER I suggest you embrace COLIN as a son and help to sculpt him for the future. This would shape your future as a leader post 2011 You may find a door closing here but another opening (ex: T Jackson /Seattle Seahawks)somewhere else.I do wish you the very best after all the 49ers signed you 7 years ago-They saw something then you can prove them right with LEADERSHIP in 2011. Good Luck tonight Alex and through the 2011 season-Be a LEADER and secure your future the next 6 years somewhere special-GUNNY
