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.

A report by Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated surfaced on Thursday, stating that the San Francisco 49ers had made third-year wide receiver Dante Pettis, a former second-round draft pick, available via trade. Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that on Friday while speaking with reporters. "It's two weeks before the trade deadline," Shanahan explained. "I know (general manager) John (Lynch) has taken a number of calls on it. I know he's made some. That's stuff that we do right now. We'll see if it can help us, and if it does, we won't hesitate to do it." There was some question whether or not Breer's report meant that the 49ers were actively shopping Pettis or were just

Kyle Shanahan discusses the possibility of the 49ers trading for roster help

As the trade deadline approached last year, the San Francisco 49ers were engaged in trade talks with the Denver Broncos to acquire wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The Niners saw him as a player who could help them win a championship, and the team nearly did that but fell just short in Super Bowl LIV. Could general manager John Lynch and the 49ers make a similar move this season? This year's trade deadline is on November 3. "John and his group, they're always looking into all possibilities on that stuff," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared with reporters on Monday. "I mean, they're watching film on the whole league day in and day out. And they're always on the phone and stuff, whether it's John or other guys, some of the scouts, or whoever. They're always having a

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

By David Bonilla

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),"
