Colin Kaepernick says 49ers offense 'can do more'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is excited about the offense this year with all his weapons at receiver.

He said in an interview with the media Thursday that having Steve Johnson, Brandon Lloyd and Bruce Ellington to go with Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis and Quinton Patton should open up the passing game.

"I think it gives us an opportunity as an offense to do a lot more," Kaepernick said.

When asked if he would you like to see the offense start tilting more toward the passing game, Kaepernick said: "I want to see this offense do whatever it has to do to win games. That’s really what’s most important, but I’m always good to throw a few more balls."

He added that the offense has the "capability" to become an elite, prolific passing attack.


49ers OC says Colin Kaepernick ready for new offense


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said the team opted to "clean out the garage" and rebuild the playbook for the 2014 season. That could mean more three-receiver sets and perhaps much more passing than the Niners have done in the past.

One reason for the change is because Colin Kaepernick is more ready for what the coaches are teaching him, Roman said. 

"It's his second full year starting, fourth year in the system," Roman said. "He's seeing things now that he didn't see before. He's right on track."

Roman added that the offense will be more prepared for every situation they're faced with. Because the defense isn't quite as loaded as it's been in the past thanks to some injuries and question marks, the offense might have to shoulder more of the load to win games, meaning put points on the board. 

The 49ers averaged a league-low 26.1 pass attempts per game and scored 25.4 points per game (11th best) in 2013. 


Colin Kaepernick, two others, face no charges from Miami incident


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) There will be no charges filed against 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette or 49ers receiver Quinton Patton from a suspicious incident that occurred earlier this offseason in Miami in which Kaepernick was linked to a possible sexual assault, Comcast Sports Net reports.

"No charges, no indication that a criminal act was committed," Ed Griffith of the state attorney's office said. "She was alleging that she may have been the victim of a sexual assault, and there was no evidence."

The announcement brings a conclusion to an episode in which Kaepernick maintained his innocence from the beginning.


Contract breakdown: Colin Kaepernick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Colin Kaepernick signed a six-year, $126 million deal with just over $60 million in potential guarantees with the 49ers, but according to ProFootballTalk.com the quarterback will have to play well to receive much of that promised money.

Per the site, only $13.073 million is guaranteed. The rest of the $61 million will be converted into full guarantees on a yearly basis. Every year, before April 1, the Niners have the right to either keep him for what's on the contract or cut him. For instance, next year he's guaranteed $12.4 million, but only if the Niners keep him on the roster by the beginning of April, 2015. Kaepernick could also receive the yearly salaries if he's injured. 

There's also a de-escalator clause in the contract where Kaepernick loses $2 million in guarantees per season if he doesn't play in the Super Bowl or isn't named first- or second-team All-Pro.


Colin Kaepernick signs big extension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick signed a big contract extension Wednesday, reports the NFL Network.

The deal is reportedly worth six years for $126 million with $60 million guaranteed. He was scheduled to make less than $1 million this season prior to the extension.

Kaepernick has led the 49ers to the Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game in consecutive years since taking over for Alex Smith midway through the 2012 season.


49ers, Colin Kaepernick ready to talk new contract


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) The 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick's representatives are meeting this week to discuss a contract extension, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The report says this is believed to be the first face-to-face meeting since the sides met during the scouting combine in February.

That the two sides are meeting again suggests the 49ers are convinced that nothing will come from the City of Miami Police investigation that involves Kaepernick and two other players. That investigation began April 3 and created a lull in contract talks between the two sides. It is ongoing but is expected to be resolved this month.

The 49ers now have the salary-cap space to move forward with a contract that almost certainly will make Kaepernick the highest paid 49er and that could be one of the most lucrative in the league. He could be looking at a contract that pays around $18 million annually.

Kaepernick would make less than $1 million in base salary in 2014 absent an extension.


Harbaugh expects huge year from Colin Kaepernick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/2014) 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said he expects a "real breakout" year from quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2014. The optimism for that is partially because of the firepower around him, but it also has to do with how Kaepernick has developed thus far. 

"He just has the look and feel that he's going to break out, more so than he already has," Harbaugh said per ESPN.


49ers want Colin Kaepernick extension done by July


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) The 49ers will get some cap space after June 1, some of which they'd like to use to sign quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a long-term extension. Comcast Sportsnet reports that the team would like to get a deal done with Kaepernick before the start of training camp in late July. 

Currently, Colin Kaepernick counts just $1.63 million against the cap for the 2014 season. 


No update in investigation involving Colin Kaepernick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/5/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said he's "changed my way of thinking" following an ongoing police investigation in Miami involving himself and two other NFL players, reports ESPN.

Police are investigating what they have described as a "suspicious incident" at a Miami hotel involving Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quinton Patton, Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and a 25-year-old woman on April 1. Police said last month that it was not a criminal investigation.

A Miami police spokesman said this week that there was no update on the investigation nor is there a timeline for any new information.

"It's been put out that I did something wrong," Kaepernick said. "Even though it's a bad circumstance, a bad situation, I feel like ultimately I've been blessed because it's changed my way of thinking. It's made me stronger. It's made me look at things differently."


No timetable on Colin Kaepernick deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke would not set a timetable on the contract talks with quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who's entering the final year of his deal.

“Negotiations of these are long, can be drawn out, can be tedious,” Baalke told the San Jose Mercury News. “It takes a lot of work, thought and engineering."


49ers, Kaepernick put contract talks on hold


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/18/2014) With Colin Kaepernick involved in a "suspicious incident" that he claims he had no wrongdoing in, he and the 49ers have put contract extension talks on hold

NFL Network reports that the Niners are the ones who pumped the brakes on a new deal, but it wasn't like a new deal was close to happening anyway. Per the report, the two sides were not close on terms. The deal is expected to eventually carry a value at $18 million per season.


Kaepernick indicent: Lockette called 911 twice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette appears to be the one who called 911 in regards to the incident involving a woman ending up in the hospital following an evening spent with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quiton Patton and Lockette on April 2.

According to a police report obtained by WINZ-AM in Miami, Lockette called 911 twice after the woman refused to leave his apartment. Miami police confirmed to CSN Bay Area that the new police report is accurate, but they declined further comment because Miami police didn't make the report public.

Lockette called police at 12:03 a.m. and 12:20 a.m. on April 2 because a woman was lying naked on Kaepernick's bed and refused to leave. Miami Fire Rescue was eventually dispatched to the apartment and the woman was taken to the hospital around 12:32 a.m.

Kaepernick, Lockette and Patton were all named in the original incident report, which was filed by the unnamed woman on April 3 and released to the public April 10. The incident report doesn't make any accusations against anyone, but the woman did say that after getting naked in front of Kaepernick, he left the room. After that, she woke up in a hospital room and didn't "remember how she got there or who transported her to the hospital." The woman also mentioned alcohol and marijuana in the incident report.

Kaepernick has maintained that he did nothing wrong. As of Monday, no charges have been filed and the incident is still under investigation.


Colin Kaepernick responds to 'suspicious' allegations


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter on Friday to deny any wrongdoing in a police investigation in Miami involving two other NFL players and a woman. Per the report, a woman woke up in a hospital after spending time with Kaepernick and players Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette and had no idea how she got there. 

"The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I've seen are completely wrong," Kaepernick said in a series of posts on his official Twitter account. "They make things up about me that never happened. I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but  I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up. I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced."


Colin Kaepernick among those named in 'suspicious incident'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was one of three people named in a Miami-Dade County police report surrounding a "suspicious incident" in South Florida on April 1.  

A spokesperson for the police told CBSSports.com that Kaepernick is not being investigated but that they're following up on an information report involving him. 

Per the report, obtained by CBSSports.com, the woman claims she woke up in a hospital bed without knowledge of how she got there following a visit to see Kaepernick, former 49ers and current Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and Niners wideout Quinton Patton in a Miami-area hotel. It's made clear that Kaepernick and the victim had a previous physical relationship. 

"The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts," general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. 


Boldin expects big year for Colin Kaepernick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin is expecting quarterback Colin Kaepernick to play well this year, and he's excited for his development heading into the 2014 season.

Kaepernick started his first full season in 2013 and has been a dynamic playmaker the past two years, but Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com this could be his best year yet.

"People criticize for him not being a conventional, prototypical quarterback, but there isn't anything that I've seen the prototype quarterback do that he can't do," Boldin said. "He can make every throw on the field, he's a smart guy but he's athletic. When things break down, he's able to make plays. You just look at the playoffs alone, you see him running wild over defenses. He's going to be something to deal with for a lot of years to come. He's still young, he's still learning but he's still willing to listen. He takes advice, but that's still good."

Kaepernick had a solid season in 2013 with 3,197 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions and 92 carries for 524 yards and four touchdowns. He should improve on those stats this season with his full complement of weapons.

The key for Kaepernick going from good to great is likely his rushing prowess, and Boldin said he encourages Kaepernick to run as much as possible.

"My advice to him is any time it's there, run it," Boldin said. "You have the ability. It scares the crap out of defenses whenever you have a quarterback that can take off and get 40 yards on a scramble. Use all the weapons that you have."


Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


Foot injury limited Colin Kaepernick early last season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh admitted the team called fewer designed quarterback runs early last season because of Colin Kaepernick's undisclosed foot injury, reports CSNBayArea.com. “We didn’t want to see Colin get hit 12 times a game," Harbaugh said. "Four or five, maybe, and that’s it. That was a conscious effort.” 

Kaepernick didn't miss a practice or game, but Harbaugh said he noticed the injury in practice.

“I can see it,” Harbaugh said. “He doesn’t verbalize it and he says he’s fine and he’s going to play through it, which I respect. If it ever got to the point where I thought it was hurting him or an injury could be worse or he was hurting the team, I’d step in.”


49ers want Colin Kaepernick deal before training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said he wants to work out a long-term deal with quarterback Colin Kaepernick before training camp, reports CSNBayArea.com. “We’re going to work extremely hard, very diligently, in trying to get something done prior to training camp. That’s the objective right now,” Baalke said at the NFL owners meetings.

The team and Kaepernick's agent, Scott Smith, are expected to meet soon to talk specifics. Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is scheduled to make $1.073 million. He could seek as much as $20 million annually in his new contract.


Jim Harbaugh: Colin Kaepernick extension a 'high priority'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Coach Jim Harbaugh called it a “high priority” for the 49ers to sign quarterback Colin Kaepernick to an extension, reports CSNBayArea.com. Kaepernick is scheduled to earn $1.073 million in the final year of his contract.

“Those things have a process that play out,” Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings. “The priority is Colin Kaepernick is a San Francisco 49er for however long we can have him be a San Francisco 49er. It’s definitely a high priority.”

Harbaugh described Kaepernick as an "amazing individual."

“He shows up and works all the time," the coach said. "There’s really nobody to compete with him in a workout situation. He will bury everybody. And then when somebody tries to compete with him, he just ramps his competitiveness up and somebody’s over there on a knee throwing up.

“He’s unbelievable. As you can tell, I think he’s a special and great player. So it’s a high priority.”


Colin Kaepernick talks to start at $20 million a year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Contract negotiations with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, "if they truly get off the ground, will begin at $20 million a year," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie deal and would be willing to play it out rather than settle for less.

"This kid is confident enough and stubborn enough and motivated enough and focused enough to stick to that position no matter what the 49ers put before him," La Canfora wrote.


Report: Colin Kaepernick wants $17 million-plus annually


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who's entering the final year of his rookie deal, is seeking a contract extension similar to or slightly better than the ones given to Jay Cutler and Tony Romo, reports the Boston Globe. Cutler's deal averages $18.2 million annually, Romo's $17 million.

If the 49ers "don't get in Kaepernick's range," he'd be willing to play out the 2014 season and put off negotiations until next offseason, the report said.


Report: Colin Kaepernick's reps using Jay Cutler deal as 'floor'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick are discussing a contract extension, and Kaepernick's reps are using Jay Cutler's recent extension "as the floor for negotiations," reports CSNBayArea.com. Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

The first three years of Cutler's extension are worth $18 million annually, after which the Bears can release him without penalty, the report said.


49ers have contract priorities this offseason


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) A source told ProFootballTalk.com that the Niners are making it a priority to extend the contracts of coach Jim Harbaugh, quarterback Colin Kaepernick and receiver Anquan Boldin this offseason. 

Boldin is a free agent while Kaepernick still has a year left on the deal he signed as a rookie. If the team were to franchise him next spring the price tag would be around $16 million. That might be a starting point in the team's negotiations.

Harbaugh is signed through the 2015 season. It is believed that Harbaugh will command at least as much as his brother John Harbaugh makes with the Ravens -- $7 million per year. 


Colin Kaepernick has harsh words for Richard Sherman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Usually reserved 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick came out of his shell Friday to finally answer the criticism of teammate and wide receiver Michael Crabtree by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after the Seattle win in the NFC title game.

Kaepernick also spoke about the throat-slash gesture he received from Sherman following an interception off a Sherman tip of a pass meant for Crabtree that clinched defeat.

"It was a ridiculous statement," Kaepernick told the Sacramento Bee about Sherman calling Crabtree an average receiver. "Crabtree's one of the best receivers in the league, in my opinion. ... To me, to have someone try to call him out that way is absurd."

As for the choke sign, Kaepernick asked Sherman, "Did that make you feel better about yourself? Then go ahead. Because I'm not worried about you."


Colin Kaepernick explains why he runs more in the playoffs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick explained why he runs more in the playoffs on CSN Bay Area.

Kaepernick said most of it is due to the fact that he doesn't want to take unnecessary hits in the regular season. "You have 16 weeks during the regular season that you might not want to take all those hits," Kaepernick explained. He added the offensive coordinator Greg Roman constantly explains that Kaepernick needs to make sure he protects himself. If he has an opportunity to go out of bounds, he's told to get out. If not, he's told to get down. "When you get to the postseason, it’s one-and-done, if you’re not winning," Kaepernick concluded. "So we’re going to do everything we can to try to win those games."
