Colin Kaepernick’s Agents Reportedly Request Trade
Will there be a hand-off? Despite assurances from new 49ers coach Chip Kelly that he’s part of the team’s plans, the quarterback’s agents have asked San Francisco for permission to seek a trade. The 28-year-old was benched midway through last season and later put on the injured reserve, but many analysts think he could thrive under Kelly’s system. The club now has until April 1 before Kaepernick’s $11.9 million base salary becomes guaranteed for the year, which could complicate any talks with other teams.
