Colin Kaepernick Wants Out Of San Fran; Prefers To Throw INT’s For The Jets Instead
What a fall from grace Colin Kaepernick has had during his time in San Francisco. He went from playing in the Super Bowl, being the next big thing, to benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert. Now the Quarterback wants out and prefers to play for the New York Jets. You would think the hiring of Chip Kelly would make him happy since Chip prefers the type of QB that he is, a running and passing threat(Not really, but let’s play along).
“The Daily News has learned that embattled 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wants out of San Francisco after a forgettable 2015 that included on-field struggles that resulted in a benching midway through the season and a coaching change after it. The Jets are his preferred destination, according to sources.
The Jets, aware of Kaepernick’s desire to play for them, are intrigued, but still in the early stages of their offseason planning and evaluation, according to sources. They’re also deathly afraid of tampering (see: Darrelle Revis situation, circa 2015).”
Kaepernick wants to play in New York, but he still has five years remaining on a $114 million extension signed in 2014 that includes escape hatches for his current employer. The Jets, coming off a 10-win season, would have to trade for Kaepernick or wait until he’s cut.
