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.

Alex Mack on 49ers' QB situation: 'I want the guy who's going to win games'

The San Francisco 49ers might be approaching a crossroads. Eventually, a quarterback decision will need to be made. Jimmy Garoppolo is the team's undisputed starter right now. However, his injury history made the 49ers uncomfortable to the point that the team drafted Trey Lance this offseason. Lance is the future. He will eventually succeed Garoppolo. When that happens is anybody's guess. Garoppolo sustained a calf injury during Week 4, forcing Lance to start Week 5 — when the rookie suffered a knee sprain. Things are trending toward Garoppolo starting this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts. The veteran passer was out on the practice field with his

Trey Lance wasn't active on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts. The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback is still recovering from the knee sprain he suffered on October 10. In the third quarter of Sunday's game, with the 49ers trailing the Colts 20-12, we asked fans via Twitter who they want to see next weekend against the Chicago Bears, should the Niners fall to 2-4. They did, embarrassingly losing the game 30-18. The vast majority of voters seem to be finished with Jimmy Garoppolo and want to see Lance get his second NFL start, assuming he is healthy. Below are the poll results so

14 rollercoaster observations from the 49ers loss in Arizona

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his starting debut on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. He played well, but as expected, it was a bit of a rollercoaster. There were ups and downs, just as there are when any rookie quarterback makes his first start. Last week, when Lance played the second half against the Seahawks, head coach Kyle Shanahan said there was some 'good' and some 'bad'. After his first start, Lance said the same thing about his performance on Sunday. Some good, some bad. A rollercoaster. The 49ers lost the game by a score of 17-10. The team, as a whole, had an up and down game. Here are my 14 rollercoaster observations from Sunday's game: I remember hearing how Shanahan was excitedly
