Barrows: Kaepernick contract restructure awaiting his signature

Oct 10, 2016 at 6:00 PM--


Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee stated today that the restructured contract for Colin Kaepernick is simply awaiting his signature. Kaepernick, along with many players on the team, has been out of town since Friday. Head coach Chip Kelly stated that the team would return to work on Tuesday.


Tuesday would be the first day that Kaepernick would have an opportunity to review the contract himself, which Barrows points out as something that he likes to do.

The new deal is believed to be a two-year one that would alleviate some of the 49ers' concerns regarding the risk of injury and salary commitment. Under the current contract, a serious injury would trigger a $14.5 million guarantee of Kaepernick's 2017 salary.

The new contract also reportedly allows Kaepernick to void the 2017 year, making him a free agent following this season and the start of the new league year. On Monday, Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY reported that the new contract is expected to add $1 million in playtime incentives this season and that Kaepernick's $125,000 per game roster bonus is expected to convert to guaranteed salary.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided some injury updates heading into the team's Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets on Sunday. The latest injury is to pass rusher Dee Ford, who Lynch said came in with some neck stiffness this week. "We sent him for some imaging, and we're waiting to kind of hear those results here this morning," Lynch added. "We'll let you know as we know." Tight end George Kittle suffered a knee sprain right before halftime during the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend. He has not practiced yet this week but could still play on Sunday. "He did sprain his knee," Lynch said. "Is it out of the question that he plays? No. George is obviously very

'Nothing there' between 49ers, Clay Matthews, says Barrows

First, there have been zero reports that the San Francisco 49ers are interested in former Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams linebacker Clay Matthews. I cannot stress that enough. Still, with the team's ever-increasing number of injuries, Matthews' name does come up often from fans who feel he could help offset some of the Niners' losses. In just two weeks, the 49ers defensive line has taken a significant hit. Ronald Blair (knee) and Jullian Taylor (knee) started the season on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. Then, on Sunday, San Francisco lost Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas to season-ending ACL injuries. No one seems to know when Dee Ford (back) will return to

Trent Williams received a video from his head coach on Sunday after the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was the block he had on linebacker Jordan Hicks during the game. "Wow, it's good to have you back," Kyle Shanahan said in the message that included the highlight. That block went viral on Sunday, and rightfully so. Williams absolutely obliterated the defender on the play, which featured tight end George Kittle on an end-around run. Here's some cleaner video of that viral clip of Trent Williams killing a man in broad daylight.
