49ers training camp: Colin Kaepernick discusses Seahawks, Vernon Davis, Alex Boone

49ers training camp: Colin Kaepernick discusses Seahawks, Vernon Davis, Alex Boone

The San Francisco 49ers held their first media session of training camp on Wednesday. Colin Kaepernick had a chance to speak on a variety of topics. We've got the transcript. The San Francisco 49ers had their first player availability on Wednesday, and Colin Kaepernick was among the players to speak with the media. Kap was fairly limited in his answers, but they did seem a little more detailed than what we've seen in-season in the past. It will be interesting to see if he remains at least a little bit expansive during the coming regular season, or if it will be back to shorter answers. Kap...

Kaepernick on Stevie Johnson: “He creates so much separation. Very quick, very deceptive.”

SANTA CLARA — Colin Kaepernick was interviewed by Bay Area reporters Wednesday afternoon. Here is a transcript courtesy of the 49ers. Was it a relief to see TE Vernon Davis walk through those doors today? “Always great to have Vernon on the field. Looks good. Excited to have him back out here.” How do you […]

Kaepernick happy Davis reported, ‘not the type of person to walk out on his team’

Not surprisingly, Colin Kaepernick was among those 49ers excited to see Vernon Davis report to training camp Wednesday and halt a contract holdout. “Vernon’s not the type of person that’s going to walk out on his team like that,” Kaepernick… Continue Reading →

49ers passing offense needs to pick it up this training camp

The No. 1 mission of this 49ers training camp: boosting the Colin Kaepernick-led passing attack. It even has the defense raring to go for Thursday’s first practice action. If the secondary can get its mitts on Kaepernick passes, both sides… Continue Reading →

Bengals owners thinks Andy Dalton's next contract should be around that of Colin Kaepernick

Bengals owner Mike Brown had some interesting comments about Andy Dalton's next contract. Would a deal similar in structure to Colin Kaepernick's deal be entirely crazy? The San Francisco 49ers signing of Colin Kaepernick to a 6-year extension marked the first sizable deal for a member of the 2011 draft class. It is noteworthy because that class was the first to experience the artificial ceiling on salaries with the rookie wage scale. They are all now eligible for new deals, and we'll start to see bigger contracts coming down the pike. One player that is a tough one to figure out is...

Wednesday evening open thread

Well, the 49ers have begun assembling for training camp, but  we won't be hearing a whole lot out of camp until practices start later next week. It will remain quiet, so I figure we can continue to throw the occasional open thread out there to close out the night. Today is the slowest sports day of the year, with the "highlight" being the ESPYs. I haven't watched them in some time, although they did become a part of our lives last year. In case you forgot, last year saw some people get pissy about Colin Kaepernick wearing sunglasses indoors during the show. It was a couple weeks after the...

Colin Kaepernick gives advice to high school football team

Colin Kaepernick spoke to a high school football team. He told them things about stuff. If there's one message we want to really sink in around the San Francisco 49ers locker room, it should probably be "stay out of trouble and avoid distractions." Obviously, the 49ers don't need us to say that -- it's something that Jim Harbaugh has preached over and over. Of course, it hasn't exactly worked out the way Harbaugh has hoped with all of the offseason trouble. Still, it's a worthwhile message to attempt to deliver, especially to those who may be impressionable. Like, say, high school students....

The Crabtree-Kaepernick connection makes a Michael Crabtree extension that much more important

The Crabtree-Kaepernick connection makes a Michael Crabtree extension that much more important

Fans saw a spike in production with Michael Crabtree with Colin Kaepernick. We look at why extending Michael Crabtree is beneficial to the San Francisco 49ers and examine why the 49ers are the most attractive team to Crabtree. With the offseason in full effect and very little happening in 49ers world, I wanted to put down some thoughts regarding Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree. With Kaepernick's new contract and the latest reports of Richard Sherman's post super bowl comments, it seemed like a good time to explore some of the stats they have together and explore some of the elements...

Colin Kaepernick got a massive, elaborate new tattoo

In what has become something of an offseason ritual, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has added yet another tattoo to his ink resume. Kaepernick posted this striking shot of his gigantic new torso tat on Instagram: In case you can’t tell, it’s an homage to the “money is the root of all evil” Bible verse, complete with a snake-entwined hand plucking an apple from a money tree. It’s … not subtle. Predictably, Kaepernick  — who recently signed a six-year, $126 million contract extension — has taken a lot of flak for the wealth-disparaging design. “Prove it by giving me your...

Colin Kaepernick gets a new tattoo, people talk

Colin Kaepernick gets a new tattoo, people talk

The offseason is a time for players to relax and enjoy whatever is that takes their mind off of football. San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis is doing some traveling in southeast Asia, and quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to get another tattoo. I say "tattoo" but this really is a work of art. I don't have any tattoos, but I can still appreciate something as impressive as this. The tattoo work was done by Carlos Torres. You can check out more of his work on his Facebook and Instagram pages. First up, here are two shots of the tattoo. It apparently is not quite...
