49ers fans and Bay Area residents are hyper-aware of Colin Kaepernick’s excellent 2012 season. He took Alex Smith’s starting job Week 10, started the final-seven games of the regular season and was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL over that stretch. I thought it would be interesting to compare Kaepernick’s final-seven regular season […]
The Raiders are close to trading Carson Palmer to the Cardinals, reports NFL.com. The Cardinals most likely will draft the best offensive tackle available with the seventh pick in the draft. They signed running back Rashard Mendenhall and cornerback Antoine Cason in free agency. They still have Larry Fitzgerald, one of the best wide receivers […]

Assuming Alex Smith heads elsewhere, one of the five quarterbacks below could start San Francisco’s next regular-season game. Here’s a look:
Locker completed 38 of 40 passes at his pro day and Rang says he’s seen him look better on just one occasion. That would be Locker’s performance in the final game of his junior season when he completed 19 of 23 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-10 romp over Cal (he also rushed for 77 yards and two TDs on 14 carries).
Sports Illustrated’s Peter King believes San Francisco, Arizona and Minnesota would be the most logical landing spots for Carson Palmer, assuming Cincinnati deals him. Palmer grew up in Southern California and his wife, Shaelynn, was raised in San Francisco.
Palmer, who turned 31 on Dec. 27, has endured a steady stream of dysfunction and defeats during his eight-year career in Cincinnati. The Bengals, who went 4-12 in 2010, have had two winning seasons since 2003.
