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.

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw

49ers Lost in Loss to Cardinals

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
