Colin Kaepernick and Nessa emerge as a couple

Feb 15, 2016 at 6:01 PM--


Because who doesn't go to TMZ for all of their sports news? San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has gone public with his relationship with Hot 97 host Nessa. The couple attended the Valentine Hearts fundraiser to benefit Camp Taylor – a free camp for kids battling heart disease – where they spent hours hanging out with the campers. TMZ reports that the couple has been dating for months, but never confirmed their relationship publicly until this worthy cause.

Many may remember that there were rumors that Kaepernick and former 49ers LB Aldon Smith, who is now with the Oakland Raiders, got into an altercation during a team practice. Of course, this report was disputed by players and some of the media. Of course, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that some of the practice sessions were closed to the media so there was an opportunity for something to happen without it being seen by them.

Kyle McLorg of Bay Area Sports Guy reported that "[Nessa] had once been dating Smith, and when a relationship blossomed between she and Kaepernick, tension ensued between Smith and his quarterback."

Amid recent rumors that Kaepernick had a desire to play for the New York Jets and no longer wanted to be in San Francisco, there was a report that it was Nessa, who lives in New York, that wanted Kaepernick closer to her. The rumor was later 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.


Kaepernick's status with the team remains in limbo. He is recovering from multiple surgeries and his base salary of $11.9 million becomes fully gauranteed on April 1. The team may look to the draft or to free agency for a quarterback of the future or may give Kaepernick a shot in new head coach Chip Kelly's system.

49ers' third QB options for this season and beyond

By David Bonilla

Brock Purdy is now one injury away from starting. While the San Francisco 49ers have expressed a lot of confidence in the last overall pick in this year's draft, having the rookie lead a championship-caliber roster probably isn't ideal. Veteran Jimmy Garoppolo is the starter moving forward following the season-ending injury to Trey Lance, last year's No. 3 overall pick. Lance will undergo surgery today on the broken ankle suffered in the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Purdy hasn't even been active in San Francisco's two games this season. However, he may suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Denver Broncos. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk

Silver: Some 49ers players and coaches believe team is better with Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers avoided a catastrophe by bringing back quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal. Trey Lance's season ending in Week 2 is disappointing. The worst-case scenario for this season would have been not having a quarterback capable of stepping in and keeping the team competitive. Holding onto Garoppolo once seemed like an unnecessary luxury. Now, some feel the team is better suited to make a deep playoff run than they were with the second-year quarterback. Garoppolo knows the offense and what is expected of him. He's been a part of the locker room since 2017. According to one report, inside the building, some feel the team is better equipped to compete with Garoppolo at the helm of the offense. "[T]his is the part



Have Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch mismanaged the 49ers QB situation?

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers plan was set. Draft a young quarterback who would eventually replace Jimmy Garoppolo. The young draftee would be able to sit and learn under the veteran Garoppolo, and then take over in 2022. But things haven't exactly gone according to plan, and on Sunday, the plan imploded when Trey Lance broke his ankle—an injury that will cost him the remainder of the 2022 season. Much has been made about how well (or poorly) Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have managed the 49ers quarterbacks. I've seen many fans and media blaming Shanahan for the current situation. Many have criticized the duo for how messy the QB situation has been since trading away two first-round round picks, and swapping another first-round pick, to draft a quarterback. Have
