According to a Tuesday report by the New York Daily News, Colin Kaepernick wants to be traded out of San Francisco after a rocky season in 2015. Word is he is disillusioned with the 49ers and would like the be traded to the New York Jets.
Another reason could be because of Kaepernick's new girlfriend Nessa, who is the host for Hot 97 in New York. The report suggests this could be a big factor. Nessa used to date former teammate Aldon Smith, and his been rumored to have been involved with Washington Wizards player John Wall.
San Francisco can trade or cut Kaepernick before April 1 when his 2016 base salary of $11.9 million becomes guaranteed. San Francisco would save $8.5 million by cutting Kaepernick, who is scheduled to have a $15.9 million cap charge this season.
However, a deal might not be so easily struck, as the Jets have expressed interest in re-signing Ryan Fitzpatrick after a career season in 2015.
Kaepernick might well hit the open market if he isn't more flexible about his destinations for a trade. If that happens, he will draw interest from multiple teams.
