Colin Kaepernick congratulates Jim Harbaugh on his Citrus Bowl victory

Jan 1, 2016 at 3:51 PM--


San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick sent out a congratulatory tweet to his former head coach and current University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. Following last season, the 49ers "parted ways" with Harbaugh after an 8-8 season and he was quickly scooped up by his alma mater to be their next head coach.

Harbaugh led the Wolverines to 10-3 season, capping it off with an impressive 41-7 victory over the Florida Gators in the Citrus Bowl.


Harbaugh replied to Kaepernick, giving thanks and wishing him the best in 2016.


Together, Kaepernick and Harbaugh led the 49ers to two NFC Championship games (2012, 2013 seasons) and a Super Bowl (2012 season).

This season, the 49ers are 4-11 with one final game left and Kaepernick was benched for QB Blaine Gabbert before being placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He 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.

Peter King went through his list of "Goats of the Week" in his latest Football Morning in America column for NBC Sports. No, not G.O.A.T., as in the greatest of all time. Although, one of those — Tom Brady — was on the list for his fourth-quarter mishap against the Chicago Bears. It's for the scapegoats, or those bearing much of the blame, of the week. Another quarterback — Jimmy Garoppolo of the San Francisco 49ers — made King's list. The 49ers signal-caller was returning after missing two games due to a high-ankle sprain. Garoppolo earned a career-low passer rating of 15.7 before being benched at halftime and replaced with C.J.

49ers rookie Javon Kinlaw explains how Arik Armstead has influenced his development

First, it's important to note that San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw doesn't typically provide lengthy answers to questions. It's just not his style. However, he did have a longer-than-usual response on Thursday when asked to identify a teammate who has been most helpful during his transition from the college game to the pros. That player is sixth-year defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who has taken on a mentorship role with the first-year defender. "I've been leaning on Arik a lot," Kinlaw said. "Just love getting some feedback from him. Just love watching film with him, and I've been watching film with him. And him just giving me little keys and little things to help me out, to help my game out a lot. So, I have definitely been leaning on

Jimmy Garoppolo says his ankle is 'feeling great' ahead of 49ers-Rams

Jimmy Garoppolo will start on Sunday night when the San Francisco 49ers host the division-rival Los Angeles Rams. The quarterback hopes for a better performance than his Week 5 outing against the Miami Dolphins when he threw two interceptions before being benched at halftime. Of course, it was his first game back from a high-ankle sprain, and the injury was still affecting Garoppolo. General manager John Lynch said Friday morning that it looked like Garoppolo was affected by a hit from a defender early in the matchup. "It didn't look right (after that)," Lynch said via the KNBR interview. "And I think that affected his ability to rotate and throw the ball
