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 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

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is preparing to enter his second NFL season, and likely his first as a full-time starter. He had two starts during his rookie campaign, but only because veteran Jimmy Garoppolo was injured. 49ers legend Bryant Young played on the defensive side of the football for 14 years, all with San Francisco. Young frustrated opposing quarterbacks during his illustrious career, bringing them down a team-record 89.5 times. What advice does the soon-to-be Hall of Fame defender have for the 49ers' 22-year-old quarterback? "He's a big kid," Young said Wednesday on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "I got a chance to meet him at the 49ers Foundation event earlier in the year. Not only is he a big, athletic kid with a
