He was positively a prodigy personification in a post-season of 2012, though things soured fast. In 2014, a 49ers collapsed. According to, there was row between conduct manager Jim Harbaugh and a 49ers management. Harbaugh was fired, and Jim Tomsula transposed him. The 49ers plummeted again, and Tomsula was fired. After a fibre of bad seasons and removing benched by Tomsula in 2015, Kaepernick started looking for other options.

During a off-season, Kaepernick was recuperating from several injuries. He had surgeries to his left shoulder, right ride and left knee. During his recovery, he spent time in Colorado. He discussed a probable trade with his agents, and they contacted a 49ers.

At a moment, a quarterback stays in dilapidation between a 49ers and a Broncos. Kaepernick has agreed to a understanding with a Broncos for $11.9 million for a 2016 season. According to ESPN, their sources are claiming a Broncos are peaceful to compensate $7 million of that contract. Denver and Kaepernick are wanting a 49ers to compensate $4.9 million. ESPN sources state a 49ers were reluctant to compensate for a actor who will not be on their roster.
