Colin Kaepernick featured on New York Daily News cover

Feb 4, 2016 at 6:09 PM--


On Tuesday, it was reported by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was interested in joining the Jets. The article stated that, according to a source, he wants out of San Francisco and in with New York. Mehta even stated that the "Jets are aware and intrigued by Kaepernick's desire to play for them." Of course, any interest could spark tampering violations by the league.

There were even reports that his reported girlfriend, Nessa Diab, a Hot 97 host that resides in New York, wanted Kaepernick there and that the desired move was so the two could be closer.

On Wednesday, the original report was debunked by Dom Cosentino of New Jersey On-Line who, according to another anonymous source familiar with the situation, stated that the report was untrue. The source called the report a "Random, strange article."

Since then, according to various sources, the desire might be rather one sided. While it is possible that Kaepernick may have a desire to leave the 49ers, the Jets are reportedly uninterested. Besides, the Jets have cap issues and Kaepernick's base salary of $11.9 million becomes fully gauranteed on April 1.

That didn't stop the New York Daily News from making the report their cover story on Wednesday. Here is what that cover looked like. Of course, in their defense, the issue was likely released prior to the other reports.



The Jets are interested in re-signing 2015 starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is a pending free agent. Both Fitzpatrick and the Jets have stated that they want to work a deal out that will keep the quarterback in New York. At this point, according to reports, it seems highly likely that a deal happens.

New York's top receiver, Brandon Marshall, voiced his opinion on a Kaepernick to New York rumors, saying that he was fine with the Jets' current quarterback situation. "I don't want Kaepernick," Marshall stated Tuesday on ESPN's First Take. "I think he's good, but my guy is [Ryan Fitzpatrick], it's nothing against Kaepernick – and Geno [Smith] is still my guy too. What I am saying is that I have my quarterbacks and I am good."

CBS' Jason La Canfora chimed in on the Kaepernick situation, saying that the 49ers quarterback has wanted out for some time and that he believes a trade is still possible. However, he did not state that the Jets were a likely trade partner.





Kaepernick started the 2015 season as the starting quarterback for San Francisco, but poor play eventually led to his benching in favor of Blaine Gabbert. He was then placed on injured reserve when a shoulder injury came into light. Kaepernick is recovering from multiple surgeries. While none are expected to be long-term issues, he has had surgeries on his left shoulder, thumb and knee since being placed on injured reserve.

Kyle Shanahan hopes to have Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Rams, explains decision to bench him vs. Dolphins

Jimmy Garoppolo did not look healthy during the San Francisco 49ers' 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. It looked like the high-ankle sprain he suffered three weeks earlier impacted his ability to throw the football. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed Garoppolo at halftime that his day was done. There has been a lot of speculation whether or not Garoppolo would return for the 49ers' Week 6 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The team could use an effective quarterback, which Garoppolo wasn't against the Dolphins. More important, however, is that the 49ers could use a healthy Garoppolo down the stretch. It sounds like Shanahan is hoping to have Garoppolo out of the field against the Rams on Sunday night. "Jimmy came in good (on Monday),"

Kyle Juszczyk confident Jimmy Garoppolo can excel again, once healthy

To say that Jimmy Garoppolo struggled during his half of play against the Miami Dolphins would be an understatement. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback recorded the lowest single-game pass rating (15.7) of his career while going 7-of-17 for 77 yards and two interceptions. In Garoppolo's defense, he had missed two games after suffering a high-ankle sprain during Week 2, and the injury was clearly impacting his ability to throw the football and move around. Garoppolo probably shouldn't have been playing in the first place, a debate that emerged after the Dolphins routed the 49ers 43-17. While the media has resumed speculating how to replace the 49ers quarterback, Garoppolo's teammates still have confidence in his ability to lead the team from the NFC West

49ers receive good news regarding Trent Williams injury; Richard Sherman, Dee Ford not expected back before bye

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice and shared some good news regarding Trent Williams. The veteran offensive tackle suffered an ankle injury on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams and will not practice today. No, that's not the good news. The good news is that tests showed that the injury was not as serious as it could have been, with some fearing a high-ankle sprain or worse. "[The scans] showed that nothing was broken and that it wasn't a high-ankle (sprain)," Shanahan said. "So, that was good news, but (he's) still in too much pain to practice today, and I know he'll be questionable throughout the week. Hopefully, it will get better each day, but it's not there yet." Shanahan isn't
