49ers set to meet with Colin Kaepernick’s agents this week
- Updated: June 3, 2014
The Niners received $6.6 million in cap relief on June 1st, as former cornerback Carlos Rogers‘ contract was officially removed from the books. This will put the team about $8 million under the salary cap which is enough wiggle room to extend Kaepernick.
San Francisco has made no secret about the fact that keeping their quarterback in the fold long term is a high priority.
Via the Sacramento Bee:
“There’s really no one that competes with him in a workout situation,” said head coach Jim Harbaugh. “He will bury everybody. And then when somebody tries to compete with him, he ramps his competitiveness up, and somebody’s over their knee throwing up. He’s unbelievable. So you can tell I feel he’s a great player, a high priority.”
Kaepernick, who is due to make less than $1 million in base salary in 2014, has posted a 17-6 record as a starter during the regular season. He has also won four playoff games.
