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.

Are the 49ers looking to follow in the footsteps of the rest of the league and add a multidimensional quarterback like Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen to their roster? Not necessarily, based on what 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday. With the 49ers set to add a quarterback with the third overall pick in this week's NFL Draft and a contrast in styles expected to be available to them in perceived pocket passer Mac Jones along with higher-athleticism candidates in Trey Lance and Justin Fields, there's been some discussion in the past over whether or not the 49ers will choose to follow league trends and emphasize athleticism in their selection. Shanahan addressed that topic during the 49ers' predraft press conference on Monday, saying he doesn't let any single style or

Now that Trey Lance is a member of the San Francisco 49ers, the question becomes when he'll get his chance to see the field. But for now, Lance doesn't seem to be thinking that far ahead and is instead focusing on getting his feet wet in the Bay Area. In particular, Lance is looking forward to getting to know his teammates, including current starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and learning everything he can about his new team and his new home. Lance spoke to 49ers beat reporters for the first time Thursday night after the team made him the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Lance was asked if he expected a similar situation as the one he experienced in college at North Dakota State, where he spent time on the sidelines before taking over the starting

Fans are eager to see what the head coach and play-caller does with his new versatile weapon. The former North Dakota State quarterback is equally eager to see how Shanahan utilizes his talents. "He makes it work," Lance said of Shanahan during a one-on-one conversation with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin on Thursday night. "Obviously, what he does on the field, his football mind, just the little bit I have gotten to talk to him, you can see it. And everyone in that organization is that way, so I'm

After spending his college days more than halfway across the country in South Bend, Indiana, offensive lineman Aaron Banks sounds more than happy to be returning home to start his career in the NFL. Banks, who is a product of Alameda, California, where he played his high school ball at El Cerrito High School, will be coming back to the Bay Area after being selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. Not surprisingly, his reaction as well as the reaction of those around him was one of sheer elation when the 49ers announced the news. "It is insane," Banks told reporters after being drafted on Friday. "It's funny because all my high school coaches are here and every single one of them (are) 49ers fans through and through, wearing their
