Colin Kaepernick: Still hoping to find chance to compete
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaepernick still hopes to find an opportunity to compete for a starting job, ESPN.com reports.

Kaepernick seemingly understands he'll have to settle for a salary well below the $14.5 million he walked away from in San Francisco, but he does still hope to get paid like a low-end starter of high-end backup -- which may be wishful thinking at this point. There really isn't an obvious fit, but Cleveland, Houston and Denver could all be options, depending on what happens with Tony Romo and the upcoming NFL Draft. It won't be surprising if Kaepernick remains unsigned into May or June.

49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Still facing uncertain NFL future
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

49ers general manager John Lynch acknowledged that the team is unlikely to re-sign Kaepernick, who recently opted out of the final year of his contract, The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Kaepernick's decision to opt out was seemingly made for non-financial reasons, as he walked away from $14.5 million without any assurance of finding a similar deal. A return to San Francisco at a lower price was initially considered possible, but it seems highly unlikely now that the team has added Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley. Kaepernick put up decent numbers for a woeful 49ers squad last season, but his injury history, social activism and track record of inconsistent performance are all factors that may dissuade teams from taking a shot on the 29-year-old. He should still eventually be able to find work as a backup -- or for a chance to compete for a starting job -- assuming he's willing to settle for a much smaller salary than he's grown accustomed to.

49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Will opt out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaepernick announced Wednesday that he would opt out of the final season of his contract with the 49ers, ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner reports.

In what was a widely-anticipated decision, Kaepernick will become a free agent for the first time in his career, affording the 49ers approximately $14.5 million in cap room in the process. After spending a good portion of 2015 in a backup role behind Blaine Gabbert, Kaepernick made 11 starts in 2016 and was quite productive from a statistical standpoint, posting a 90.7 passer rating and a 16:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio while also contributing 468 yards on the ground. It's unclear if other teams around the league view Kaepernick, who went only 1-10 as a starter last season, as a viable No. 1 quarterback, but now that he's a free agent, his acquisition cost would likely be lower than some of the other veteran signal callers who are expected to be available via trade.

49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Tosses touchdown in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaepernick completed 17 of 22 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Seattle. He also rushed for 16 yards and fumbled twice, losing one, during the contest.

Kaepernick threaded the needle to tight end Garrett Celek for a nine-yard score late in the fourth quarter, bringing the 49ers' upset bid within a score. It was an either wise efficient yet unspectacular outing for Kaepernick, which can be said for much of his season. The dual threat set career marks in touchdown:interception ratio (4:1) and yards per carry (6.8), but managed to pilot just one win as a starter for an oft-anemic San Francisco team. With change at the top likely for the 49ers, Kaepernick will quite possibly be another coach's project to try to retool in 2017.

49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Burns Los Angeles with his arm and legs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaepernick completed 28 of 38 passes for 266 yards, two touchdowns and a pick in Saturday's win over the Rams. He added 15 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion on the ground.

After a relatively quiet game, Kaepernick exploded in the fourth quarter with a touchdown scamper, scoring pass and gutsy two-point dive in the game's closing minutes. It will go down as a season to forget for the 49ers, Saturday representing just the team's second win and first since Week 1's victory over the Rams. However, Kaepernick has had a quiet yet efficient return with a 14:4 touchdown:interception ratio on the season and four games of a quarterback rating over 90 in his last six outings. How he and head coach Chip Kelly wrap up the season against an uneven Seahawks team might go a long way in defining both their futures in San Francisco.
