49ers to NFL: If you wish Kaepernick, you've to pony up

Any teams hoping the 49ers would slice quarterback Colin Kaepernick and create him a free agent didn't look their wish come true.

The one p. m. deadline by which the 49ers might've released Kaepernick came and went on Thursday, reinforcing what the team has worked to communicate in recent weeks: If you wish the quarterback, you'll have to give us something in return.

One of the issues is that the team that seems most interested, the Denver Broncos, thinks the quarterback is worth a fourth-round draft pick. The 49ers wish a higher choice and, moreover, the Broncos don't even have a fourth-round choose in the upcoming draft to trade. Instead they've trade-able picks at the finish of the second second (No. sixty-three overall) and third (No. ninety-four overall) rounds.

A second obstacle: Kaepernick's salary.

Denver currently has the smallest quantity of salary-cap space in the league, $1.6 million, according to the NFL Players Association. They could clear some space by cutting one-time left tackle Ryan Clady.

But that still wouldn't be sufficient to get on Kaepernick'south current contract. He's due to create .3 million in two thousand-sixteenth, including an $11.9 million base salary that's presently guaranteed because he'll be on the 49ers roster on Friday. The only way Kaepernick won’t earn that $11.9 million figure is if he agrees to renegotiate his salary with another team.

Bleacher Report reported Thursday that the Broncos wish Kaepernick to get a deal worth $7 million in two thousand-sixteenth, which Kaepernick'south camp thus distant has rejected.

The Jets, meanwhile, have made a similar proposal to their two thousand fifteen starter, Ryan Fitzpatrick, which he's refused to take. The Broncos have shown some interest in Fitzpatrick as well. Many league observers think that the team that signs Fitzpatrick will force the other to move more aggressively to sign Kaepernick.

The following mi marker in the story is the 49ers offseason program, which begins April four. Kaepernick will earn another $400.000 in bonuses if he attends most of those sessions, and he's expected to be on hand.

After that, the April twenty-eight draft is the event that also could trigger a trade.
