Expect Kaepernick trade talks to heat up with Brock Osweiler headed to Texans

Mar 9, 2016 at 12:17 PM--


Brock Osweiler is headed to the Houston Texans on a 4-year, $72 million deal and the Denver Broncos may be left scrambling for a replacement. Earlier today, Ian Rapoport reported that Denver's backup plan is likely to be San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.



The Broncos were one of three rumored teams interested in trading for Kaepernick last season. Kaepernick's agents requested permission to seek a trade back in February. He has reportedly been unhappy in San Francisco and possibly lost trust with team management.

In November, Kaepernick was benched for QB 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. He is recovering from his surgeries at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado.

Broncos general manager John Elway and Baalke have forged a friendship. Last season, the 49ers were able to trade away TE Vernon Davis to Denver for a low round draft selection. Davis is scheduled to become a free agent at 1 PM (PT) today.

49ers DC DeMeco Ryans talks CB availability, says Josh Norman 'in a really good place'

It remains to be seen what the 49ers will do at cornerback against the Detroit Lions on Sunday if starter Emmanuel Moseley is unable to play, but it's possible that recently-signed veteran Josh Norman may be able to contribute if called upon. Moseley remained sidelined at practice on Thursday while dealing with a knee injury. Norman has less than a week of practice with the 49ers under his belt after being signed on September 6, which creates a question of whether or not he'd be in shape to play in Sunday's season opener. But defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans told reporters after practice on Thursday that Norman is trending in a positive direction despite his limited practice time. "One thing about Josh is he's a veteran who has done it for a while," Ryans said.

Could Richard Sherman return to the San Francisco 49ers? Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't eliminating the possibility following the likely loss of starting cornerback Jason Verrett for the season. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that he fears Verrett suffered a torn ACL, ending the season again for the often-injured veteran cornerback. What are the 49ers' options moving forward? Recently-signed cornerback Josh Norman was inactive for the game. "He was definitely ready to go," Shanahan said. "Josh actually told us if we tell him today that he's up, he'll be ready to go. So Josh has been a soldier all week, and I'm real excited to have him here, and I know he was ready this week, so I expect him to be ready next week also." Shanahan



49ers-Lions: Shanahan talks RB Trey Sermon's status; RB Elijah Mitchell recaps his NFL debut

Elijah Mitchell finishing the day with over 100 rushing yards while Raheem Mostert and Trey Sermon watched from the sidelines was probably not the result anyone expected at running back for the San Francisco 49ers in their 41-33 Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. But that's exactly how things transpired after the third-round pick Sermon was an unexpected healthy scratch and Mostert left the game early due to a knee injury. Mitchell, who was selected in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Louisiana, finished the day with 19 carries for 104 yards, with one of those carries going for a 38-yard touchdown. Mitchell was impressive for the 49ers during training camp and the preseason when he was healthy, so his success when given the
