Earlier this week, it was reported that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s agents had asked the team for a trade. He was replaced by Blaine Gabbert midway through the 2015 season and ended up being diagnosed with a season-ending sprained shoulder.
The team has finally broken their silence on the quarterback and whether the team will give him permission to seek a trade. General manager Jed York spoke with reporters and he seems to be pretty set on keeping Kaepernick.
“All I can tell you is that the last conversation I had with Kap was a good conversation,” York told Mark Purdy of the San Jose Mercury News. “I asked how he was feeling. I hope he’s doing well. I care about his health and well-being because I think he can be a big piece of what we’re doing, going forward.”
The team recently hired Chip Kelly as their new head coach and Kaepernick seems like a quarterback that would be perect for his kind of offense. However, you can never tell what he is looking to do.
