Draft Scout Colin Kaepernick News
06/09/16 - QB Colin Kaepernick participated in most of the drills at the 49ers' three-day minicamp. It was the former starter's first on-field team activity since he underwent shoulder, thumb and knee surgeries in the offseason.
06/02/16 - QB Colin Kaepernick did not participate in any of the 49ers' organized team activities (OTA) workouts as he has yet to get medical clearance following offseason surgeries on his left shoulder, right thumb and left knee. He almost surely will not get the green light to join the intensified practices during mandatory minicamp next week, either. That means competition with QB Blaine Gabbert for the starting quarterback position won't start until training camp ... presuming Kaepernick is healthy enough to participate at that point.
05/17/16 - QB Colin Kaepernick will not participate in the 49ers' three-day OTA session that began May 17 while he recovers from offseason surgeries on his left shoulder, right thumb and left knee. New 49ers head coach Chip Kelly insisted Kaepernick was not in danger of falling behind QB Blaine Gabbert, his chief competitor for the starting spot, while he sits out.
04/05/16 - QB Colin Kaepernick will remain with the San Francisco 49ers and a potential trade to Denver is on hold -- for now.
According to multiple reports, Kaepernick rejected taking a pay cut that would have made the trade possible, and the 49ers nixed the idea of paying off part of his salary.
Kaepernick showed up Monday for the start of the offseason program under new head coach Chip Kelly despite the ongoing trade talks with the Broncos.
Kaepernick, who has spent the offseason in Vail, Colo., rehabbing his left shoulder, right thumb and left knee, flew from Denver to San Francisco on Sunday night, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Kaepernick's arrival to the 49ers' facility keeps him in line for a $400,000 offseason workout bonus for 90 percent attendance in the workout program, which is voluntary.
The 49ers and Broncos reportedly have the parameters of an agreement in principle on a trade for Kaepernick, but the deal is being held up over disagreement on who will pay the quarterback's $11.9 million guaranteed salary for the 2016 season.
A source confirmed to ESPN that the Broncos are willing to pay $7 million, and Denver and Kaepernick would like the 49ers to pay the remaining $4.9 million. However, the 49ers have been unwilling to pay the difference and Kaepernick has been unwilling to forfeit the $4.9 million to make the deal work, according to the report.
The 49ers have granted Kaepernick's agents permission to seek a trade.
Kaepernick and Broncos executive vice president of football operations/general manager John Elway have met twice since March 15, according to the Chronicle.
Kaepernick met at Elway's house in the Denver area last Thursday, the same day Kaepernick's $11.9 million base salary became guaranteed for this upcoming season.
After Peyton Manning retired and heir-apparent starter Brock Osweiler bolted to the Houston Texans, the Broncos acquired veteran Mark Sanchez from the Philadelphia Eagles last month. Tr
03/31/16 - QB Colin Kaepernick is now officially set with a base salary of $11.9 million for the 2016 season. Once the clock hit 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, Kaepernick's salary was locked in. But it still isn't clear whether he will be with the 49ers when the season starts. Kaepernick requested a trade earlier in the offseason and the Denver Broncos are among the interested teams. But Denver has salary cap issues and would want Kaepernick to restructure his deal as part of a trade.
