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.

The San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with the winner facing off against either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This is a stage familiar for the 49ers, as they've made the NFC Championship Game in three of the past four seasons now, losing to the Los Angeles Rams last season, while going to the Super Bowl in 2019 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. However, despite seeing consistent success, the 49ers haven't accomplished their No. 1 goal: winning a Super Bowl, which has left a chip on their shoulder as they strive to hit that goal this season. When asked about the topic, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk agreed with the sentiment about having a chip



How the 49ers have advanced their offense without changing their core identity

The San Francisco 49ers have developed into an elite-tier offense over the past seven weeks, averaging over 34 points a game with quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm, while ranking second in DVOA since they acquired Christian McCaffrey. However, they've run a similar offense since the arrival of head coach Kyle Shanahan, which bodes the question of how the 49ers have remained at their elite levels on that side of the ball, despite the amount of game film being produced on their tendencies. The answer: advancing their offense by adding a layer of intricacy, even though the idea behind plays is what San Francisco has run for the past few years. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey spoke on the topic to reporters this week, highlighting the difference between

Battle over before it starts? Insider believes 49ers have decided on Brock Purdy as QB of the future

The San Francisco 49ers invested a lot to acquire quarterback Trey Lance. The team is unlikely to admit any wrongdoing there. Not yet, at least. That's not to say that Lance can't develop into a competent starter for the Bay Area squad. The team obviously believes that to be possible, having decided he was the Week 1 starter early last offseason. Circumstances have changed, though. Brock Purdy has taken the NFL by storm, surprising even those who drafted him with the No. 262 overall pick. Lance went down in Week 2, elevating Jimmy Garoppolo into the starting role. That lasted until Week 13 when Garoppolo went down with a broken foot. Enter Brock Purdy and the birth of a continuously accelerating hype train. Some expected the rookie
