49ers deny Colin Kaepernick trade rumor

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke denied a report that the team is exploring trading quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “Colin is our quarterback and we are excited to have him,” Baalke said in a statement. “He is not going anywhere. The media reports suggesting otherwise are without merit and, quite frankly, ridiculous.” KBME radio in Houston is reporting that the 49ers want to trade Kaepernick and mentioned the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears were interested in a trade. Kaepernick is only quarterback who's under contract with the 49ers. Blaine Gabbert and Josh Johnson are free agents. The 49ers reached a $115 million contract extension with Kaepernick through the 2020 season. The deal included a $12.328 million signing bonus. Kaepernick is due $12.8 million this season.
