49ers players: “There’s not a whisper of getting Kaepernick on the field”

Oct 2, 2016 at 8:21 AM--


The quest to get San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the field apparently belongs only to the fans. According to Adam Shefter and Jim Trotter of ESPN, there has been no talk among the players or coaches to have Kaepernick replace starter Blaine Gabbert.

"There's not a whisper of getting Colin Kaepernick on the field," 49ers players told Trotter.

While the coaching staff continues to support Gabbert as the team's starter, fans who want to see what Kaepernick might bring to the table have been growing in number over the past few weeks. Gabbert has completed just 55.2-percent of his passes for 535 yards, three touchdowns, three interceptions, and a passer rating of 68.6 – his lowest rating since first joining the 49ers.


Meanwhile, Kaepernick remains in the headlines due to his national anthem protest. He has even appeared on the cover of TIME magazine. Teammates and players around the league have joined his protest.

The 49ers' backup quarterback has been protesting what he calls "unjust" actions by this country by kneeling during the national anthem prior to games.

The NFL's offseason program was scheduled to begin on Monday. Players from several teams came together and opted out of the voluntary portions of Phase 1, deciding to forgo in-person workouts due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. San Francisco 49ers players had not yet made a similar statement.

However, the NFL has been pushing for in-person activities to begin after just two weeks of virtual sessions. On Wednesday, the league announced a restructure to the offseason programs. Now, there will be no on-field work until May 17. That will be restricted to no-contact drills,



Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"
