Could Kirk Cousins be an option?

Could Kirk Cousins be an option?

The pairing with his old offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco makes sense, but could the 49ers pursue it? Kyle Shanahan isn’t even head coach yet and people are already looking forward on how to fix their dismal roster. One of the key positions no doubt to be looked at will be quarterback. Colin Kaepernick can opt out for free agency, Blaine Gabbert has completed his contract, and with the number 2 pick, there’s still little to offer as far as quarterback prospects until draft research is done. The free agency class isn’t much better unless you can think of Ryan...

Considering Colin Kaepernick’s future with 49ers

Considering Colin Kaepernick’s future with 49ers

Things are changing and expectations seem to be pretty settled. What do you think? The San Francisco 49ers are about to make a significant change, hiring a new head coach and general manager. The team has a ton of cap space and a sizable haul of draft picks to begin what will be a sizable rebuilding process. The past two seasons have been running in place, at best, and now they can really flip the switch and change things. Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole posted a brief video talking about how the Colin Kaepernick era is expected to come to a close if Kyle Shanahan is hired as head coach....

Jed York, Torrey Smith to appear at Community Trust In Policing Forum

Earlier today I wrote about how Colin Kaepernick conducted his latest Know Your Rights camp in Harlem this past weekend. And now, there is word of the San Francisco 49ers getting involved in another event, in the Bay Area. The Office of the Independent Police Auditor is conducting a forum this Saturday, January 21, called the Community Trust in Policing Forum. 49ers CEO Jed York and wide receiver Torrey Smith will both be attending the event. The team confirmed both attendees, and the Eventbrite website confirmed York. The event takes place at the Mexican Heritage Plaza in San Jose, and is...

Colin Kaepernick conducted Know Your Rights camp in Harlem, passed out DNA ancestry kits

The 49ers QB continues building on his movement. I don’t know how much longer Colin Kaepernick will be with the San Francisco 49ers, but he remains a fascinating story off the field. In late October, Kaepernick hosted a camp called “Know Your Rights.” He followed up with another such camp this past weekend in Harlem. The “Know Your Rights” camps work with youths from disadvantaged demographics to help prepare them for living in a world that has numerous issues. The goal is to, “raise awareness on higher education, self empowerment, and instruction to properly interact with law...

As we all expected, 49ers just want to be the Seahawks

As we all expected, 49ers just want to be the Seahawks

In 2011, the San Francisco 49ers hired a high-profile college head coach to take over the team, just like the Seattle Seahawks did a year earlier. Consider that their GM from 2008 to 2009, Scot McCloughan, was someone they hired out of the Seahawks front office. They even installed Colin Kaepernick as their dangerous dual-threat, read option type quarterback, three months after Seattle had gone down that road with Russell Wilson. The 49ers want to be the Seahawks. And that’s continuing in their search for a new head coach, GM, and perhaps even defensive coordinator. On Sunday, San...

Why Colin Kaepernick Might Actually Return to the 49ers in 2017

All signs point to embattled quarterback Colin Kaepernick being anywhere but with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. But what are the chances he's back this upcoming season? First, let me preface all this by saying the San Francisco 49ers need to move on from Colin Kaepernick. As a...

Greg Roman to help Ravens run game get back on track

Greg Roman to help Ravens run game get back on track

The Baltimore Ravens agreed to terms yesterday with former 49ers and Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman to join the team in a yet to be specified role. Roman previously spent time with the Ravens as an offensive line assistant from 2006-2007, before moving to high school and eventually college football. He made his return to the NFL in 2011 to coordinate Jim Harbaugh’s offense in San Francisco, and went up against the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII as the engineer of the Colin Kaepernick led pistol offense of 2012. After the 49ers cleaned house in 2014, he joined up with the Bills to run...

Firings of coaches and GM by 49ers have been messy affairs

Instead on New Year’s Eve, a day before his team’s regular-season finale, the 49ers’ head coach learned that probably was leaving the same way Joe Fan did: Leaks and losses have marked a fall from grace that has included the clunky recent firings of Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke. Will York, who has maintained he’s not the source of leaks, demand a culture that protects employees by keeping information in-house? Since the 49ers’ last winning season in 2013, it’s notable that two of the franchise’s biggest names, Jim Harbaugh and quarterback Colin Kaepernick, have...

The San Francisco 49ers are going to need a quarterback this offseason. And one prospect worth keeping an eye on is Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes. Unless, for some odd reason, the San Francisco 49ers are content keeping incumbent Colin Kaepernick on the roster next year, the Niners wi...

NFL exec on Colin Kaepernick: ‘Still has some in the tank, but not worth bringing him into your building.’

The double standards for “distractions” in NFL locker rooms is astounding. The San Francisco 49ers have all sorts of roster question to sort out now that the season has come to a close. However, with the general manager and coach search going on, pretty much any roster decision is going to be delayed for the next week or two. However, one potential free agent that will remain on the radar around the NFL is Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers quarterback is signed through the 2017 season, but has the option to opt out this year. Kirk Cousins leads this year’s QB class, but if Washington places...
