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.

Some even feel a new deal could fetch the All-Pro an annual salary up to $20 million. Naturally, when one person starts talking about those kinds of numbers, everyone does. That would shatter the ceiling of the tight end market. Right now, the top salaries for the position group remain under $11 million. To nearly double that when next year's salary cap situation remains uncertain might not be in the San Francisco 49ers' best interests, and at least one person doesn't believe it will come to that.

The San Francisco 49ers are in no danger of losing last season's breakout running back, Raheem Mostert, anytime soon. He doesn't become an unrestricted free agent until 2022.

Fred Warner's contract named the 49ers' most team-friendly by Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers are big on building through the draft, and that can lead to several team-friendly contracts for some young up-and-coming NFL stars. Now and then, you miss on a high draft pick, though. The Reuben Foster selection in 2017 forced the 49ers to spend big on Kwon Alexander when the team was forced to part ways with the troubled young linebacker. The emergence of another young linebacker may have made up for that, though. San Francisco made Fred Warner a third-round draft pick a year after the Foster selection, and that rookie contract has been named the team's best-value by Bleacher Report's Brent
