Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo has tweeted that there is “no rush” in trade talks regarding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Broncos way off on comp (see @MikeSilver timeline), Browns never made a formal trade offer and contract an issue. No one in any rush.

It’s looking as though as desperate as the Niners are to be rid of Kaepernick and start fresh with a new quarterback, they’re only going to deal him if the offer is up to GM Trent Baalke’s standards.
Translation: it’s looking more and more like Kaepernick will be in a San Francisco uniform by the start of the 2016 season. The QB-needy Denver Broncos offered San Francisco a third-round draft pick for Kaepernick, but have apparently been turned down. The Cleveland Browns are even more desperate for a quarterback and Kaepernick’s interest is mutual, but GM Sashi Brown wants Kaepernick to agree to a pay cut since his contract for next year calls for him to be paid $13.9 million. The New York Jets have shown interest, but don’t appear to be a serious contender to land Kaepernick.
Thus, at this point, don’t be shocked if Colin Kaepernick stays right where he is barring a major development in the coming days.
