San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will not be dealt to the Denver Broncos after refusing to restructure his contract, plus San Francisco refusing to help cover any costs, according to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole.

It thus looks more and more likely that barring a major shift in any trade talks that may be going on, Kaepernick will have the opportunity to revive his career under new Niners coach Chip Kelly. The former second-round pick’s name has been the subject of trade rumors aplenty as San Francisco looked to unload him before his $11.9 million salary for 2016 became fully guaranteed on April 1, but to no avail.
That date has since passed and if any Kaepernick trade is going to happen, with plenty of quarterback-needy teams interested, Kaepernick himself will have to bite the bullet and restructure his deal if he wants out of San Francisco that badly.
