Colin Kaepernick says he has a great appreciation for the 49ers

Jan 1, 2017 at 5:34 PM--


San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick spoke to the media following the team's Week 17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and shared some of his thoughts regarding head coach Chip Kelly, the news that he would likely be fired, and the team as a whole.

Kaepernick was asked what his thoughts are regarding the likelihood that general manager Trent Baalke, who has confirmed that he has been fired, and Kelly would not return in 2017. "That's above me," Kaepernick said. "That's not something that I have a decision or input on.

"I will say that I appreciate Chip and what he's done as far as coming to work every day and making sure this tear stays focused and being resilient (during) not very good circumstances as far as how our team was playing, win-loss record-wise. So I do appreciate the fact that he came in every day, worked his tail off to make sure that this team was prepared."

"I have a great appreciation for this organization," Kaepernick continued. "Jed [York] and Paraag [Marathe], have a good relationship with them. A lot of things to think about moving forward and we'll see where this goes."

"My relationship this year was much improved from years past with Jed, Paraag," Kaepernick continued. "I think we have a great relationship now and I was excited about that. I was excited about this organization as a whole, teammates playing hard regardless of the circumstances, and coming to work every day and preparing to win regardless of what position we were put in."

Kaepernick has likely played his last game with the 49ers, the team that drafted him. While Kaepernick said that he has not yet had a chance to decide on his options, it is widely believed that he will void the remainder of his contract and become a free agent.

Bill Barnwell of ESPN went team-by-team to project potential future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees for each. How do you do that for a team like the New York Jets? Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy. The ESPN writer lists veteran cornerback Richard Sherman as "likely" to make the Hall of Fame, which means he has between a

Todd McShay has 49ers selecting CB Israel Mukuamu in 'very premature' mock draft

ESPN analyst Todd McShay released his admittedly "very premature" mock draft. The 2021 NFL Draft is still over eight months away, and there remains so much uncertainty with this particular class thanks to many conferences already announcing postponements of their sports programs due to the coronavirus pandemic. That means players slated to play this season may opt-out to focus on their NFL future if college football takes place in the spring. Because of all this, McShay acknowledges that the draft landscape could change even more than usual. Last year, his way-too-early mock of the 2020 draft class featured just

There were a lot of rumors surrounding the San Francisco 49ers' reported interest in safety Jamal Adams before the New York Jets sent the All-Pro defender to the Seattle Seahawks. General manager John Lynch eventually stated that the 49ers had given the idea of pursuing Adams some thought. However, they knew that adding him would be too costly. "Being up there against it with what's happening in the (salary) cap due to the pandemic, it just wasn't a reality for us," Lynch said last month. "Yes, our division is getting better. We understand that. That's why we're working so hard to get better." Added Lynch: "Were we interested? Of course you would be interested
