Why Kaepernick trade would be unthinkable

Five years ago this week, an NFL rarity occurred – a young, rising starting quarterback was traded.Ending a swift feud between new coach Josh McDaniels and Jay Cutler, the Denver Broncos traded the quarterback to the Chicago Bears. The Bears paid a steep price for Cutler. They surrendered two first-round draft picks, a third-round pick and quarterback Kyle Orton to Denver to secure Cutler.It is doubtful we will see another trade like that again.
