49ers: Sale of Kaepernick’s home is an “investment decision”

Dec 1, 2016 at 1:20 PM--


Earlier today, the Los Angeles Times reported that San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has put his four-bedroom San Jose home up for sale with the asking price of $2.9 million. He bought the 4,600-square foot home four years ago.

"As Kaepernick walked onto the University of Central Florida practice field Thursday, he was asked about his house, and rather than comment, he smiled and kept walking," reported Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group today.

On behalf of Kaepernick, a team spokesman has clarified that the sale of Kaepernick's home is "an investment decision."


There has been a lot of speculation on whether or not the current 49ers quarterback will return to the team in 2017. If Kaepernick does not wish to remain with the 49ers in 2017, he has the option to void the remainder of his contract and become a free agent in March.

Kaepernick has not committed to the 49ers beyond this season and has had a rocky relationship with the team in recent years – particularly with general manager Trent Baalke. If Baalke were no longer with the team following this season, many within the media believe that it may open a window for Kaepernick to return in 2017 if he wishes to do so.

While a fresh start elsewhere may be tempting, Kaepernick is scheduled to make $14.5 million with the 49ers next season. That's a sum that might be considered a risky investment for another team when you factor in the added distractions that Kaepernick's national anthem protest brings with it. It's possible that his best option, at least financially, would be to remain with San Francisco.

On Tuesday, Kaepernick was asked about his future with the 49ers. "I'm focused on Chicago this week," he replied. "I'm not thinking that far down the road."

Nov 27

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert doesn't appreciate how 49ers reacted to his injury

By David Bonilla
Nov 27

Raheem Mostert is the Miami Dolphins' leading rusher this season, and the running back may have some beef with his former team when he faces the San Francisco 49ers next weekend. Mostert appeared in just nine games during his last two seasons with the 49ers. He played in just one game last season before opting to undergo season-ending knee surgery. In the last year of his deal, it was a decision he felt was best for his NFL future. Apparently, the Niners weren't pleased with the decision. "Mostert weighed all pros and all cons when he decided to sit out the season," wrote Tyler Dunne of Go Long. "He knew how much he was risking - the decision absolutely pissed the 49ers off - but he also knew how hard he would work." The 49ers initially
