Colin Kaepernick is “on the trading block” according to Jayson Braddock of KBME SportsTalk 790 in Houston.
Remember, Trent Baalke screamed “Throw the ball!” in the press box when Kaepernick scrambled for a short gain against the Rams in 2013.
If Braddock’s rumor is true, maybe the 49ers can trade Kaepernick to the Buffalo Bills for their second round pick. Greg Roman is Buffalo’s offensive coordinator, and head coach Rex Ryan said in 2012 he wanted to the Jets to draft Kaepernick.
Update: Matt Maiocco tweets “Trent Baalke strongly denies the 49ers are shopping Colin Kaepernick.” Does that mean Baalke isn’t taking offers?
Update: Braddock stands by his report: “Story has been verified by 3 different sources. Time will prove it. Been here before.”
Update: According to Matt Maiocco, Trent Baalke says, “Colin is our quarterback and we are excited to have him. He is not going anywhere. The media reports suggesting otherwise are without merit and quite frankly ridiculous.”
Update: Braddock just retweeted this: “The fact that Baalke felt the need to issue a statement refuting it means that it has to be true.” And this: “I bet come Tues morning, Kaep is no longer a 49er.” And this: “I’ll say this
@JaysonBraddock had Mallett to Houston before anyone else, and Maxwell to Philly before anyone else.” And this: “Why would @JaysonBraddock risk his sky rocketing credibility to break this story, I’m going with what he is saying.”
