It certainly looks like Colin Kaepernick doesn’t want to be in San Francisco any longer and he has already had his agents ask the team for a trade. While the team may not be willing to give him one, a few teams seem willing to jump at the chance to have him.
According to multiple reports, two teams that are in pretty desperate need for a quarterback want to bring the former third-round pick in. Both the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns have expressed interest in trading for Kaepernick.

If the 49ers were to trade Kaepernick, the team that gets him would take on his $11.9 million contract, which ranks 15th among all NFL quarterbacks. New head coach Chip Kelly has done some strange things in the past, so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see them keep Kaepernick and skip on drafting a quarterback in April.
In five years with the 49ers, Kaepernick has thrown for 11,374 yards and 63 touchdowns against 31 interceptions. He has also ran for 2,339 yards and 15 touchdowns.
However, the last two seasons, Kaepernick has recorded 15 interceptions and just 25 touchdowns. He missed half the 2015 season with a sprained shoulder.
