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.

Tight end George Kittle wowed one of his bosses, San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York, and it had nothing to do with an amazing catch or block on the football field. York shared the following story with Rich Eisen today. "I think George is easily one of the top people in the NFL," York said. "Just an awesome guy, an awesome, awesome football player. The first person ever to do a hand-written card for me to say thank you for a new contract, ever in the NFL. Since 2005, my first year, first guy ever to do a hand-written card." Kittle signed a five-year, $75 million contract extension in August of 2020, ensuring that the All-Pro tight end remains with the 49ers for a long time.

Jed York believes 49ers can win with Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance but doesn't mind paying for both

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York spoke with Rich Eisen today and discussed the team's quarterback situation. The Niners drafted Trey Lance at No. 3 overall, surrendering a haul of picks to move up and get him. However, San Francisco held onto veteran Jimmy Garoppolo because doing so gives the team the best chance to win right now. The 49ers have a championship-caliber roster in place, after all. York reiterated what he said last month. He has no problem paying to keep both quarterbacks, even though a quicker transition from Garoppolo to Lance would mean more salary-cap savings or money that the 49ers can spend elsewhere. York is even fine with the cost for the next two

What will the 49ers defense look like now that DeMeco Ryans is in charge? There will undoubtedly be some similarities on that front to what was seen under former defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, but Ryans wants to bring his own touches to the defense, starting with a more aggressive approach. "Our defense will be a fast, attacking, aggressive defense," Ryans told reporters Wednesday in his first media session since being named defensive coordinator in January after Saleh took over as head coach of the New York Jets. "I want guys to play fast. I want guys who are smart. I want guys who are going to play physical." In particular, Ryans wants to unleash the talent the 49ers have on defense up front. Ryans expects the defensive line to set the tone
