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.

The San Francisco 49ers own one of the most injury-ravaged rosters in the NFL. That won't come as a surprise to most of the team's fans. The Niners currently have 18 players on injured reserve, which tops the league. According to Spotrac.com, the 49ers have a league-leading $86.1 million worth of salary cap space tied up by players sitting on injured reserve. That is nearly 43 percent of the team's salary-cap space. Which NFL team sits at No. 2 on the list? That would be the Dallas Cowboys, who have $52.4 million of salary-cap space tied up in players on injured reserve. That is a significant drop in money from the top spot to the runner-up.

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 27-13 loss to the Saints

By Matt Andruscavage

Well, somewhat rapid. This was an incredibly frustrating game. Afterwards, I had to take a walk, cool down, laugh it off and just get my mind off of this dumpster fire of a season for awhile. 1) Lack of execution The first quarter went fairly well. After deferring, the Saints kicked off and I admit to having some angst about a quick three and out. Instead, we saw the 49ers drive down and score a touchdown on the opening drive. Great start! Next, a three and out for New Orleans. Once the Saints muffed that first quarter punt and the Niners recovered, it sure felt like a 14-0 lead was going to happen. Instead they got it to 10-0, but this was still a surprise! Then, things fell apart. The Saints were able to cut the lead to 10-3, then it would be

49ers' Kyle Shanahan is Shrinking in the Spotlight

By Gilbert Brink

Enough Excuses. On Sunday, the 49ers suffered their 3rd straight blowout loss, dropping them to 4-6 and continuing their free-fall to irrelevancy. It was a game they could have won, the opportunities were there, but the 49ers just couldn't muster up more than 13 points of offense. Now, more than ever, the 49ers' 2020 season seems to be completely lost. While many look for a direction to point the finger, and there are a few obvious areas, start with the head coach. Sure, there have been a plethora of injuries, but one side of the ball has been handling those injuries much better than the other. Robert Saleh's defensive unit has been depleted by the injury bug, losing Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, Solomon Thomas, K'waun Williams, Jaquiski Tartt and other significant
