Colin Kaepernick’s 2016 cap number jumps to $20.2 million

Oct 15, 2016 at 2:31 PM--

The restructured contract for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been filed to the league, which revealed a few details about the deal.

Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY pointed out the following about Kaepernick's new contract via Twitter.

  • Kaepernick's cap hit for 2016 has jumped from $15.89 million to $20.23 million. That's not a big deal for the 49ers, who have plenty of cap space.
  • 34.4-percent playing time will trigger a $1 million bonus.
  • Kaepernick can void the final remaining year of the deal with notice on or before the 2nd day prior to the 2017 league year in March.

On Tuesday, Kaepernick was announced as the team's new starting quarterback. On Wednesday, he officially signed the restructured deal that eliminates the future guarantees in salary should the quarterback suffer a serious injury.

For Kaepernick, it allows him to void 2017 and become a free agent in March.

Add San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett to the list of players changing their jersey numbers this offseason. On April 21, the NFL approved a proposal that relaxes the jersey number rules of certain position groups, opening the door for wide receivers, defensive backs, and some others to wear single-digit numbers. On Monday, safety Jaquiski Tartt revealed that he is switching from No. 29 to No. 26. Of course, that doesn't really fall into the rule change. Verrett, however, is switching from No. 22 to No. 2, the number he wore at TCU. It will be his second number change since joining the 49ers in 2019. His initial number was 27.
