"You'll know in about three weeks or so," Smith said Monday.
Smith wouldn't say which way he was leaning. He indicated that the the team's decision to draft a defensive lineman in the first round of the draft did not signal his impending retirement.
"We gave Justin liberty to make his own decision on his time frame," Baalke said after selecting Arik Armstead Thursday. "We went into the draft not thinking about what decision Justin’s going to make or not going to make. We just went in to find the best football player, the best system fit that we could."
"It’s a role I’m comfortable with,” Smith said. “I’m kind of one of the older guys on the team now. I’m one of the guys who has been here for a while, so I’m helping out people who need help with anything, whether that’s knowing where to go down here or football questions.”
Smith served a nine-game suspension during the 2014 season for violating the league's policies on personal conduct and substance abuse.
The move is a formality, as Borland announced his decision to retire in mid-March. The move clears $109.359 in immediate cap space. The 49ers didn't address the inside-linebacker position in this year's draft despite the retirements of Borland and Patrick Willis.
Thomas made two special-teams tackles in five games played with the 49ers last season. He tore an ACL while working out earlier in the offseason and will presumably miss the entire 2015 season.
The Santa County District Attorney's office released the press release stating that Miller is facing a misdemeanor vandalism charge.
The alleged incident occurred March 5 when Miller and his girlfriend were arguing in a parking garage in Santa Clara. Miller allegedly took his girlfriend's cell phone and smashed it against a wall.
He was originally arrested on a charge of spousal battery, but the girlfriend refused medical attention and did not have any visible injuries.
