Colin Kaepernick And 49ers Restructure Contract


Colin Kaepernick, newly restored as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback, has a newly restructured contract, too. So, when I said that's the only maneuver you could make, it's not like 'Well geez, [running back] Carlos [Hyde] isn't playing well.' Well Shaun Draughn plays, Mike Davis plays.

Was that a shot at the 49ers lack of offensive talent?

One other note on why Kaepernick hasn't been on the field: sources close to both Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke are certain Kaepernick's time as an observer has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not he stands at attention with his hand over his heart or takes a knee during the National Anthem.

"It's not Blaine's fault", Kelly said.

"He's not the same guy he was in 2013, if you look at him physically", Kelly said, referring to Kaepernick's body change after the surgeries last November.

With Kaerpnick earning his first start of the season, the Buffalo Bills will need to make sure they are focused on the defensive side as they can not go into the game thinking number 7 is incapable of making plays after being out for such a long time. All three tight ends play.

"When I made the decision on our starting quarterback it was over five weeks ago, we're talking six weeks of rehab", Kelly said. [Tight end] Blake Bell plays. The only position that had not been rotated on the offensive side of the ball was the quarterback spot. McCoy got into a fight with off-duty police officers in February at a Philadelphia nightclub and 2. "So that's why we made the decision to do what we're doing".

San Fransico should struggle to move the ball against the Bills this week which means two things: Buffalo has a good chance to take an early lead again and they should win the overall time of possession battle.

Going up against the Arizona Cardinals last week, the season did not get any better as they racked up their fourth consecutive loss; only win coming in the season opener.

Asked which player would start Sunday, Kelly said it was "a work in progress". We have no idea how to defend him.' People way over-analyze the whole thing. "We've seen it. We saw it with (former 49ers coach) Jim Harbaugh there". "We had a couple days to kind of digest where we are and I think offensively we need to be better and we just need to make a move".

What we're hearing is Kaepernick has just been slow to adapt to what Kelly wants to do and has shown little willingness to run the offense at the rapid-fire pace that Kelly believes is necessary for success.

"He's capable to be the backup", Kelly said.

"Well, I think we live in a society, number one, that there are no secrets", Kelly told reporters on Thursday, via Pro Football Talk.
