The only issue now is a dispute over who should pay the quarterback’s salary and Kaepernick is unwilling to take a pay cut to join the Denver Broncos.
“The Broncos are willing to pay only $7 million of Kaepernick’s $11.9-million guaranteed salary for the upcoming season, a source told ESPN.
Both the Broncos and Kaepernick reportedly want the 49ers to pay the remaining $4.9 million, 49ers are refusing.”
So until this money issue is resolved, get used to seeing Kaepernick on the bench kissing his biceps.
