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.
