Colin Kaepernick tweets congratulations to Gabbert and the 49ers

Dec 6, 2015 at 3:37 PM--


San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, who was benched earlier in the season and then placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, sent out congratulations to QB Blaine Gabbert and the rest of his teammates via Twitter today.


On November 24, Kaepernick had surgery to repair his shoulder. His recovery time is expected to be four to six months.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Kaepernick remains in the 49ers' plans for 2016. However, there is no guarantee that the team would not try to trade him if Gabbert continues to impress or another quarterback is targeted during the offseason.

"My understanding is Colin Kaepernick sat down with general manager Trent Baalke and discussed among other things potential free agent targets for next year and the plan for 2016, a sign that maybe – just maybe – the 49ers are not done with Kaepernick yet," Rapoport said. "I'm told he is in their plans for 2016."

Kaepernick is scheduled to make $11.9 million in 2016 if he is still on the roster on April 1. That base salary is guaranteed for injury.

Speculation ends as 49ers hire a defensive coordinator...and an assistant head coach

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers have been searching for a defensive coordinator to replace Steve Wilks, who they cut ties with after the loss in Super Bowl LVIII. And apparently, the team has also been searching for an assistant head coach after losing Anthony Lynn to the Washington Commanders. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeremy Fowler both reported early Saturday morning that the 49ers are promoting their defensive passing game specialist, Nick Sorensen, as their new defensive coordinator, and are hiring former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley for a "prominent staff role, possibly assistant head coach." Coincidentally, Staley, who was also in consideration for the defensive coordinator job, will be the second former head coach of the Chargers to join Kyle Shanahan's staff

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on. But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss. So we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to see what questions you had about the team. Let's jump in and take a look. Who are you hoping for (as defensive coordinator)? - Brian J.

By David Bonilla

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
