The saga of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick could finally be drawing to a close, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that a deal is in place to send the former second-round pick to the Denver Broncos, but there’s a catch.
What is the catch? Denver wants Kaepernick to restructure his contract. Per Schefter, Kaepernick and the Broncos are far apart in talks.
And it’s understandable why Kaepernick would be hesitant to restructure his deal. His $11.9 million salary for next year is fully guaranteed, and he has four years remaining on a $116 million deal he inked back in 2014, though the contract is structured so that San Francisco can pay as it goes.
But now it’s just a matter of what matters more to Colin Kaepernick: earning a lot of money or getting a fresh start on a team that just won the Super Bowl and has a big hole at quarterback. Though a big step has been taken forward, this saga is far from over.
