Colin Kaepernick, Broncos want 49ers to pay $4.9 million of salary

Apr 3, 2016 at 8:12 AM--


Good morning and welcome to the latest in the Colin Kaepernick to Denver Broncos trade saga. An updated report by Adam Schefter states that the San Francisco 49ers and Broncos are indeed very close on the parameters of a trade and that the only item holding it up is $4.9 million of the quarterback's salary.

"Denver and Kaepernick would like San Francisco to pay the remaining $4.9 million; the 49ers have been unwilling," says Schefter in the updated ESPN report.


The Broncos are willing to pay $7 million of his base salary and the 49ers, understandably, are unwilling to pick up the rest.

As for the compensation, which Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk disputed was set, Schefter had the following update.

A high-level source says "it would take two seconds" for the teams to finalize the proposed deal. The compensation in the trade is a nonissue, per sources familiar with deal. It will be a midround pick and sources from both teams said that will not be any holdup and they can "finalize it with one phone call."

This update confirms a report yesterday by the Sacramento Bee that the 49ers and Broncos were "close" on the parameters of compensation.

Talks heated back upon Thursday when Broncos general manager John Elway met with Kaepernick, reportedly for at least the second time, at his home in the Denver area. The meeting was likely arranged as a feeling-out process and to discuss contractual issues.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel spoke this week of the "YAC Bros." That includes himself, rookie Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, and tight end George Kittle. Although, Kittle jokingly told reporters on Thursday that he has yet to receive a former invitation to the exclusive club. "Am I a part of the YAC Bros? I didn't get a formal invitation or a t-shirt of anything," Kittle said in jest. "I don't even have the Deebo shirt, so I'm a little salty about that. It's alright, though. I'll see if I can make the club after this week." There is no doubt
