|Kaepernick wants out of San Francisco -- Tue Feb 2 5:40 pm --|
QB prefers New York as landing spot
|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. (New York Daily News)|
FF Today's Take: Even though San Francisco just signed Kaepernick to a new deal last season, the structure of the contract doesn't guarantee Kaepernick's 2016 salary (11.9 million) until April 1st, meaning he could be traded or released. The Jets have stated they are interested in re-signing Ryan Fitzpatrick so this move seems unlikely at this time. Stay tuned...
|49ers hire Chip Kelly as head coach -- Thu Jan 14 1:54 pm --|
Former Eagles coach remains in NFL
|The San Francisco 49ers have hired Chip Kelly to be their next head coach, the team announced Thursday. Kelly joins the 49ers after three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, whom he led to the playoffs once before being fired with one game remaining in the 2015 season. He was 26-21 overall with Philadelphia. Kelly rose to fame for his offensive style during four seasons and a 46-7 record as coach at Oregon.
FF Today's Take: Many thought Kelly's time in the NFL had come to close but the former Eagles coach will move to west coast and take over a franchise in a messy situation. The 49ers are coming off a disastrous season that included countless retirements and season-long injuries. Kelly's hiring may signal life for QB Colin Kaepernick who could become a viable fantasy option in Kelly's up-tempo offense.
|Mike Shanahan is 'in the mix' for 49ers HC job -- Wed Jan 13 5:44 pm --|
Two-time Super Bowl winning coach rejoins long list of candidates
|The San Francisco 49ers' head-coaching search has arguably already gone on longer than expected. Now, a new name has either entered or re-entered the picture, depending on which report you're reading: former Raiders, Broncos and Washington coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan has been out of the NFL for the last two years, having been fired by Washington prior to the 2014 season.
FF Today's Take: The 49ers coaching search has covered a lot of ground to this point and it appears Mike Shanahan may get a chance to torment fantasy owners once again. The interest in the former Washington Head Coach is logical considering the team's investment in quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Shanahan's success coaching past signal callers. The team is also said to be considering former Giants HC Tom Coughlin and a decision may be on the horizon.
| Kaepernick placed on IR, shoulder surgery -- Sat Nov 21 2:30 pm --|
Torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder
|Colin Kaepernick’s season, and quite possibly his 49ers tenure, is over as he needs surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder, a league source said Saturday. The 49ers placed Kaepernick on injured reserve and promoted rookie Dylan Thompson from the practice squad, ahead of Sunday’s game at the Seattle Seahawks. (San Jose Mercury News)|
FF Today's Take: The 49ers quarterback will likely need 4-6 months of recovery time and can be dropped from an re-draft league roster. Blaine Gabbert will be the starter moving forward. Kaeperick's $11.9 million 2016 salary becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster April 1.
