Colin Kaepernick may be the next 49ers star on his way out of San Francisco.
Houston-based NFL reporter Jayson Braddock tweeted Sunday night that Kaepernick is "on the trading block" and that the 49ers are "taking offers" for their franchise quarterback.
San Francisco General Manager Trent Baalke responded quickly with a team-issued statement.
"Colin is our quarterback and we are excited to have him," Baalke said. "He is not going anywhere. The media reports suggesting otherwise are without merit and quite frankly ridiculous."
Sure, it's ridiculous. Kaepernick has gone 25-14 as the 49ers' starting quarterback, helping the team reach the Super Bowl once and the NFC championship game twice.
Braddock is sticking with his story. And as for that denial from Baalke?
"49ers upset they got caught. It happens," Braddock tweeted Monday morning.
