Colin Kaepernick bought a home in New York City

Dec 5, 2016 at 6:16 PM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is selling his San Jose home for the asking price of $2.9 million. On Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that Kaepernick would be opting out of the remainder of his contract with the 49ers, as expected, to test free agency. Early in the offseason when trade rumors were surrounding the 49ers quarterback, it was reported that his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, a radio and TV personality who lives in New York City, wanted Kaepernick to play for the Jets. Oh yeah, and those same Jets will likely be in the market for a quarterback this coming offseason.

Today, the Los Angeles Times reported that Kaepernick bought a 1,733 square foot condominium for $3.21 million in the TriBeCa area of New York City.

"The purchase, which closed in July, was made using the same trust that holds the Bay Area property. Kaepernick's sister, Devon, is listed as the trustee," wrote Neal J. Leitereg of the Los Angeles Times.

The signs would appear to point in the direction of Kaepernick not expecting to remain with the 49ers. Of course, that is still speculation at this point. The quarterback has not spoken up about his future with the team. Following his game against the Chicago Bears, Kaepernick was asked about his contract situation. "Once again, as I've said all along, my focus is on the next game," he said. "My focus has been on the Bears this past week."

"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," Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group wrote on Thursday.

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

Prior to Sunday's loss in Chicago, Kaepernick's stock was on the rise. Since Week 9, following the 49ers' bye week, Kaepernick had thrown for 1,110 yards with eight touchdowns and only two interceptions. Against the Bears, he completed just one of his five passes for four yards before being benched early in the fourth quarter for Blaine Gabbert.

On Sunday, the Jets will get a first-hand look at Kaepernick when they travel to Santa Clara to play the 49ers on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch sounded optimistic on Tuesday that a deal with the team's All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, would get done — eventually. "George is such a great fit for what we do," Lynch said on KNBR. "He's a tremendous player. I'm sitting here looking at the vision statement for what we want in a player, and George checks every box. He's tremendous. He's what we want to be. I think it would be silly not to figure that out, so we're going to do our best to do just that." The good news is that Kittle reported to the 49ers on Tuesday for his first COVID-19 test. Should that one and his second test on Friday return negative,
