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."


Cam Newton will respond to Colin Kaepernick


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he will respond to Colin Kaepernick after Kaepernick mocked his touchdown celebration in the playoffs.

Newton jokingly told the NFL Network there "will" be a response to Kaepernick's antics. "He hurt my feelings, and I think so highly of Mr. Kaepernick," he continued. Newton did not divulge how he would respond to Kaepernick. Later in the interview, he said he has great respect for Kaepernick, and that the two hung out at the Pro Bowl.


Colin Kaepernick has harsh words for Richard Sherman


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick had some harsh words for Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, according to the New York Post.

Kaepernick said Sherman is afraid of the team's receivers, and he's looking forward to exploiting that next season. He added that if he had thrown the ball just a little farther, Sherman would have been the goat of the NFC Championship game. Kaepernick also had a few thoughts on Sherman's post-game comments. "His comments were ridiculous. If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?" 


Colin Kaepernick looking for balance in extension talks


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is looking for balance in extension talks, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Kaepernick will enter the final season of his rookie deal in 2014, and will likely look to stay with the 49ers long-term. Kaepernick said he wants to be paid fairly, but understands there are other players on the team that need to be signed. If he works out a deal with the 49ers, he could take on a flexible deal that allows the team to bring in other parts.


Quinton Patton to work with QB in offseason


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton was used little by the 49ers in 2013. He doesn't plan to be little-used in 2014, which is why he has accepted an invitation to work out with quarterback Colin Kaepernick in Miami during the offseason.

"I just want to get bigger, stronger, faster," Patton told the team website. Patton managed just three catches for 34 yards in the regular season and added two receptions for 25 yards in the playoffs. "I want to get better at the little details and everything will take care of itself," he added.


Colin Kaepernick shows picked off twice in NFC Championship game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick flashed his wheels but threw a pair of costly interceptions in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks.

Kaepernick broke free for a 58-yard run in the second quarter, which led to an Anthony Dixon touchdown, the team's first touchdown of the game. 98 of San Francisco's 128 yards of total offense in the first half came from Kaepernick on the ground. His 58-yard run was the longest run by a quarterback in postseason history.

In the second half, Kaepernick found a leaping Anquan Boldin, who caught a 26-yard pass in the end zone over Earl Thomas for a touchdown with 6:29 remaining in the third quarter.

Kaepernick was overwhelmed by Seattle defense in the fourth quarter, as Kam Chancellor picked him off with 7:37 remaining in the game, which led to a Seattle field goal. And with the 49ers at Seattle's 18-yard-line with 22 seconds remaining, Richard Sherman deflected a pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the end zone, and Malcolm Smith came down with the interception that eliminated San Francisco.

Kaepernick completed 14 of 24 passes for 153 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. He had 11 carries for a team-high 130 rushing yards (11.8 yards per carry) in a 23-17 defeat.

Can the Seahawks slow down Colin Kaepernick?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick heads into the NFC Championship Game at Seattle playing at a high level. Can the Seahawks slow him down this week?

Kaepernick has at least 20 Fantasy points in five consecutive games, and he's using his legs to help his Fantasy production with at least seven points on the ground in three of his past four outings. But the Seahawks have been able to contain Kaepernick in their brief history matching up with each other.

In three meetings, Kaepernick has two touchdowns and five interceptions, and he's averaging just 11.6 Fantasy points over that span. In two games at Seattle the past two years he's combined for just 21 Fantasy points.

The Seahawks have allowed just Matt Schaub and Andrew Luck to score more than 20 Fantasy points this season, including two matchups with Drew Brees, Cam Newton and the two against Kaepernick. I love the way Kaepernick has played of late, but I can't count on him to keep it up at Seattle against that defense. He's not a great option in any Playoff Challenge leagues.


Colin Kaepernick good enough


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick was good enough to get the win against Carolina.

Kaepernick didn't have a huge game, completed 15 of 28 passes for 196 yards. He tossed one touchdown to Vernon Davis in the second quarter. Though he also had eight rushing attempts, Kaepernick only had 15 yards. He did manage to score on an option play in the third quarter. Kaepernick will take on the Seahawks next week. 


Ron Rivera expects different Colin Kaepernick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick accounted for 105 yards and no touchdowns in the Week 10 loss to Carolina. Panthers coach Ron Rivera expects a different Kaepernick in Sunday's playoff game.

"All you have to do is watch the way he has played down the stretch," Rivera said, per Fox Sports. "We caught them at a good time and it turned out in our benefit."

The 49ers didn't have receiver Michael Crabtree in the first meeting, and tight end Vernon Davis left early with a concussion. Kaepernick has been productive and efficient lately, accounting for 12 touchdowns and two turnovers over his last seven games. He threw for 227 yards and ran for 98 more in the playoff win in Green Bay.


Colin Kaepernick moving up the ranks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) After running wild against the Packers in the playoffs again, the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick ranks fifth in playoff history for most rushing yards by a quarterback. Kaepernick (362 rushing yards in four playoff games) trails only Steve Young (594), John Elway (461), Roger Staubach (432) and Donovan McNabb (422).

In Sunday's 23-20 win in Green Bay, Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards to go with 227 passing yards.


Colin Kaepernick befuddles Packers again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Quarterback Colin Kaepernick improved to 3-0 in his career against Green Bay, leading the 49ers to a 23-20 playoff win. Kaepernick hit 16 of 30 throws for 227 yards and a touchdown with an interception and ran seven times for a season-high 98 yards.

Kaepernick ripped off a 42-yard run in the second quarter. In the fourth, he converted third downs with 23- and 11-yard scampers. The latter set up Phil Dawson's game-winning field goal.

Kaepernick found Vernon Davis down the seam for a 28-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Kaepernick's first-half interception was the first he'd thrown in four weeks. 

Kaepernick visits Carolina in the divisional playoffs next Sunday. In Week 10, he struggled vs. the Panthers, throwing for 91 yards and an interception with no touchdowns and rushing for 16 yards.
