Gabbert the starter in San Fran? That is what many think inside the 49ers organization

Could Colin Kaepernick get beaten out as the starting quarterback of the 49ers by Blaine Gabbert?  I couldn’t see this happening, but Michael Wagaman of ESPN, is reporting that Gabbert has a better understanding of Chip Kelly’s system than Colin Kaepernick. 

Wagaman also states that many in the organization see the former first round pick of the Jaguars as a better fit than Colin Kaepernick.

“Gabbert has a good grasp of coach Chip Kelly’s offense, and many in the organization see him as a better fit than Kaepernick, whose passing acumen has been questionable at times,” writes Michael Wagaman of ESPN.

With this settling in, I wonder if the 49ers will still try to trade Kaepernick?
