49ers want a second-round pick for Colin Kaepernick

Mar 10, 2016 at 7:53 AM--


Mike Silver reported on NFL Network that the San Francisco 49ers are likely looking to get a second-round draft selection for QB Colin Kaepernick. The Denver Broncos, a potential trade partner, are reportedly maybe willing to part with a third-round selection. "The dance continues," says Silver.




The 49ers would see an almost $8.5 million savings in cap space if they were to trade Kaepernick before April 1, per Spotrac.com.

Earlier today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the 49ers received some calls regarding Kaepernick, but that nothing too serious developed from them. Rapoport expects things regarding Kaepernick to heat up today and that the Broncos have some interest.

Pro Football Focus' Jeff Deeney responded to an fan on Twitter regarding an interesting proposal. The proposal had the 49ers giving up Kaepernick and their second-round pick for the Broncos first and third. With the Broncos selecting 31st overall, they would only drop a few spots, keep their second, and lose a third. The 49ers would then end up with two first-round picks, losing their second-round selection.

Update:

Silver is reporting that talks between the 49ers and Broncos have intensified, but that Denver is not the only suitor for Kaepernick. Stay tuned to NFL Network.


Silver believes that Kaepernick is on the verge of being traded and that the Broncos are believed to be the leading suitor. Ian Rapoport appeared following Silver and stated that there are at least two teams interested other than Denver. Rapoport stated that this could go down in the next couple hours and thinks it will take a second rounder. However, the Broncos will need to do more than that given their last pick in the round status.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area states that the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are the other teams in the mix.

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens has some insight on the situation between the San Francisco 49ers and their current wide receiver star, Deebo Samuel. Owens recently told NBC LX that he spoke with Samuel but wasn't willing to disclose the details of that conversation. Owens did share the following, though, courtesy of NBC Sports Bay Area. "I've talked to him personally. I know what's going on," Owens said before his Fan Controlled Football game over the weekend. "I know what transpired. Until he's ready to say what happened with that situation, I just keep that between us. But it's



49ers' 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule



Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not



49ers missing from this 2022 season playoff prediction

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers should be pretty good in 2022, right? Yes, they are entering the upcoming season with a second-year starting quarterback who played just 178 snaps last season, and the interior of the offensive line is uncertain, but the rest of the core remains. San Francisco has been a playoff participant in two of the last three seasons, with an injury-plagued 2020 campaign being the exception. There is still star power with names like George Kittle, Trent Williams, Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, and, hopefully, Deebo Samuel. Winning the NFC West over the favored defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams may be an uphill battle, but surely they will participate in postseason play, right? Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports doesn't believe so. He
