Report: Texans, Browns have no interest in trading for Colin Kaepernick

Feb 28, 2016 at 11:12 AM--


The ongoing Kaepernick drama continues. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Houston Texans have "no interest" in trading for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.


This latest report disputes and earlier one by Ian Rapoport that both the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns may be interested in trading for Kaepernick. However, it does not mean that the Texans would not be interested in the quarterback should he be released, just that they are uninterested in a trade.

Earlier today, a report by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com stated that the Browns are not interested in trading for Kaepernick "at this time."

"The Browns are expected to draft either North Dakota State's Carson Wentz or Cal's Jared Goff at No. 2, but have said they'll explore all options to improve the team," says Cabot.

Both general manager Trent Baalke and new head coach Chip Kelly stated this week that, to their knowledge, Kaepernick wants to be in San Francisco and the 49ers want him there. Baalke even went as far as saying that Kaepernick would "absolutely" be on the team's roster come April 1, a deadline that guarantees him his $11.9 million base salary. Kelly spoke enthusiastically about the possibility of working with Kaepernick this offseason.

Then a report emerged that Kaepernick's agents had requested permission to find trade partners for their client, a request that San Francisco has not yet responded to.

Even team CEO Jed York chimed in while speaking to The Mercury News saying that his last conversation with Kaepernick was good and that the team hoped for him to be part of their 2016 plans.

Kyle Shanahan explains how trading up made things easier for the 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers sat at No. 3 for over a month, and even when they were on the clock, no one was 100 percent sure who they were drafting. We knew it would be a quarterback, but which one? Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch remained secretive throughout the whole process. Imagine how under wraps things would have been had they stayed at No. 12. That's why the 49ers traded up. They didn't want to sneak around in the shadows, evaluating quarterbacks and hoping those prospects didn't talk to anyone about the team's intentions. "At 12, you see two guys on tape, like, 'Man, if any of these guys are there, I for sure would take them,'" Shanahan told Rich Eisen during an interview on the Rich Eisen Show. "And you know

Rich Eisen is also very interested to know where Lance is headed and grilled the former Bison about his interactions with the Niners. "How are your Zooms with the 49ers, Trey?" Eisen came out and asked the quarterback during The Rich Eisen Show. "I actually ... um," Lance said before pausing, as if he were carefully choosing his next words. "They've been going well," he continued. "I haven't had any more with them than I've had with any other team. But definitely looking forward to [the draft], like said, finding out where I'm going to be. I wish I knew, just as much as you do. Probably
