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.

New 49ers OC Mike McDaniel explains the thinking behind a Kyle Shanahan offense

Before landing with the San Francisco 49ers, the longest Mike McDaniel had spent with an NFL team was three years. That came with the Houston Texans between 2006 and 2008. That's also where he started working with Kyle Shanahan. Then-Texans head coach Gary Kubiak gave Shanahan his first shot as a position coach and McDaniel his first shot as a paid assistant. Then Kubiak threw the two in a room together. That's where the relationship started, McDaniel shared with NBC Sports Bay Area. The two went on to work together in Washington, Cleveland, and Atlanta. Shanahan built so much trust in McDaniel that he brought the assistant to San Francisco when Shanahan was named the head coach in 2017. McDaniel has been with the 49ers since — his longest tenure with one

The Sports Business Journal is reporting that the NFL is getting close to finalizing its new media deals for the rights to broadcast or stream future games. Things could cross the finish line as early as this week and then be announced next week—possibly earlier. It sounds like Fox will retain the rights to NFC games on Sundays, but there has reportedly been some pushback from the network on the asking price—over $2.2 billion per year for 11 years—which doubles that of the previous deal. As reported earlier, Amazon Prime Video looks poised to secure the exclusive rights to simulcast Thursday Night Football on its streaming platform,
