Colin Kaepernick will void his contract according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. According to Rapoport, Colin Kaepernick will void his contract with the 49ers before the 2017 league year is underway.
Rapoport says that it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him re-sign with San Francisco, because they are happy with his progress. According to the report, Kaepernick was appreciative the team supported him when he took his huge social media stance.
First, he’s playing great, becoming the quarterback coach Chip Kelly always imagined in his system (even during his time in Philadelphia). Second, the once-strained relationship between the franchise and the quarterback is in a very good place.
The 49ers stood by him while he took a hard social stance — he appreciated that, and most of the issues that lingered when he nearly was traded to the Broncos have dissipated. Things are good between Kaepernick and the team, and his decision to put his San Jose house on the market this week had nothing to do with football.
