There's a "50 percent" chance quarterback Colin Kaepernick returns to the San Francisco 49ers, the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes. What It Means: Due $16.9 million in salary and bonuses, Kaepernick should theoretically want to stay in San Francisco because that's the only way he would earn that much money. In December, national reports from both ESPN and NFL Network had Kaepernick preparing to opt out, but that was before head coach Kyle Shanahan was hired. Kaepernick's Passing Net Expected Points per drop back ranked 28th among the 39 quarterbacks to drop back 100...

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is "open to returning to the [team] in 2017," reports Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee. What It Means: The expectation has been that Kaepernick will opt out of his contract, but he and new general manager John Lynch are expected to have a meeting sometime in the near future to discuss things. If head coach Kyle Shanahan wants to keep Kaep, then perhaps the new 49ers regime will be able to convince him to stay in San Francisco.

Colin Kaepernick made Jeopardy

Colin Kaepernick made Jeopardy

I’ll take running quarterbacks for $500, Alex As far as Colin Kaepernick’s kneel down during the national anthem, it’s safe to say it got people talking. Politicians, public speakers, the NFL, you name it; anywhere you looked you could find an opinion on the whole thing. Then came South Park to make fun of it, and now to make the final chisel into granite that this kneel down had America talking, and has still kept them talking is the Jeopardy question. I don’t watch Jeopardy, but then again, after David Letterman retired from The Late Show, I don’t watch much TV anyway, so I...

Colin Kaepernick ranks No. 1 among QBs in several team playoff performance metrics

Colin Kaepernick ranks No. 1 among QBs in several team playoff performance metrics

Much of this is team-based, but it is still crazy how things were in 2012 and 2013. The San Francisco 49ers have failed to get to the postseason each of the last three seasons, and it will probably take at least a couple seasons, if not more to return. When they do eventually return to the postseason, odds are pretty high that Colin Kaepernick will not be on the team. He can opt out of his contract next month, and while we have heard some reports that he is open to a potential return to the 49ers, a clean split seems more likely. If Kaepernick does leave the 49ers, it means we will not get...

Colin Kaepernick changing agents, per report

The 49ers have questions at the quarterback position. Colin Kaepernick has his own decisions to make, and they will be happening with a new agent. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick faces a significant decision in the next month, and he will be making it with new representation. Matt Barrows is reporting that Kaepernick is formally changing agents, leaving XAM Sports. The NFLPA agent database does not include Kaepernick, which happens when a player is without an agent. The union requires a five-day waiting period before a player hires a new agent. This is not a surprising...

Shanahan talks (briefly) about Kaepernick

It may be a foregone conclusion that Colin Kaepernick is gone next season, but let’s consider the possibility.

Some video came up on CSN Bay Area with Kyle Shanahan discussing quarterbacks and what he has planned for his coaching staff. As you might guess, Colin Kaepernick came up as a question for for Shanahan. Here’s what his response was: Colin’s had success in this league. He took a team to the Super...

Report suggests a 49ers trade for Jimmy Garoppolo could be similar to Alex Smith deal

Report suggests a 49ers trade for Jimmy Garoppolo could be similar to Alex Smith deal

The 49ers moved Alex Smith for a second-round pick and a conditional pick. Could something similar fetch Jimmy Garoppolo? Any available or potentially available quarterback this offseason is going to be linked to the San Francisco 49ers in some way. Colin Kaepernick was actually decent down the stretch in 2016, but his contract is a mess from both sides and him remaining with the team is not a guarantee. One of the hot names potentially on the market is New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. There have already been various Garoppolo rumors thus far. He is under contract with the...

Colin Kaepernick not interesting to Broncos this offseason

The Denver Broncos won't "circle back" and have interest in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick this offseason, the Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala expects. What It Means: The Broncos were hot on Kaepernick's trail last offseason when they were trying to replace Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. General manager John Elway reportedly met with Kaep in person, but compensation couldn't be worked out as he was unwilling to take a pay cut. Kaepernick's Passing Net Expected Points per drop back ranked 28th among the 39 quarterbacks to drop back 100 times this...

Preproduction meetings for Lynch at FOX included meeting Colin Kaepernick prior to the broadcast. John Lynch spoke to the local media after the broadcasted press conference and covered many optics including San Francisco 49ers free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Lynch was asked about what factors could weigh on the decision regarding the quarterback especially after his polarizing cause and the actions surrounding it. It would be a football decision but think part of that, there’s different layers to that, and so I think everything will be included in the decision. I’m not...
