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.

Legal issues derailed Texans' plans to create bidding war, likely involving 49ers, for Deshaun Watson

This has been a mess of an offseason for the Houston Texans. Team representatives repeatedly stated that they have no intention of trading disgruntled quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson has stated that he has no desire to play for Houston anymore. Texans brass has even reportedly ignored calls from interested teams. Was that all a ploy, though? John McCain of the Houston Chronicle believes so. Of course, everything changed when legal issues caused Watson's trade value to plummet, and Houston lost any advantage it might have had in trade discussions. Watson is currently facing 22 civil suits accusing him of sexual harassment and assault, along with an NFL investigation. The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly interested in Watson—before the



La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via



49ers TE George Kittle says Seahawks tried to trade up to draft him

Seattle Seahawks tight end George Kittle. That probably doesn't sound very good to San Francisco 49ers fans, but it could have happened. The All-Pro recently spoke with Matt Verderame on the Stacking The Box podcast (h/t to Tzvi Machlin of The Spun) and shared a story from the 2017 NFL Draft when a team tried to move up to grab him. Kittle's agent told him that he felt the former Iowa tight end might be selected as high as the second round, if lucky. However, most likely, they were looking at somewhere between the third and the sixth rounds. The 49ers ended up selecting Kittle in the fifth round, No. 146 overall, but

A report surfaced yesterday stating that the New England Patriots were preparing a new contract for Jimmy Garoppolo — just in case the San Francisco 49ers decided to trade the veteran quarterback. Another report stated that the expectation around the league is that the Niners would try to move Garoppolo before or during the draft, which kicks off tonight. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says that there are currently no plans to trade Garoppolo. However, he adds that multiple teams are expected to reach out to San Francisco today to inquire about the
