GM Trent Baalke Won’t Rule Out Moving QB Colin Kaepernick This Week

colin-kaepernick

It’s possible that quarterback Colin Kaepernick could be traded this week, San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke tells Bob Holtzman of ESPN.

“I wouldn’t say we are out there looking for it, but I wouldn’t rule it out,” Baalke said.

Kaepernick is attending a voluntary minicamp this week in Santa Clara, California, but he still isn’t throwing. He is recovering from shoulder, thumb and knee surgeries.

Baalke also said “there’s been no talk internally” about Philadelphia Eagles QBSam Bradford. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday that Bradford wants to be traded. Bradford’s former coach with the Eagles — Chip Kelly — is the 49ers’ new coach.

49’ers RB Carlos Hyde Slimmed Down to 225 Pounds and Feeling Great

49ers running back Carlos Hyde has slimmed down to 225 pounds and says his surgically-repaired foot “feels great” according to Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group.

New 49ers head coach Chip Kelly runs the fastest-paced offense in the league and Hyde is focusing on getting into tip-top shape in anticipation of being the featured back in the Kelly offense. The 49ers listed Hyde at 235 last season and he weighed 230 coming out of Ohio State in 2014, which may be part of the reason he has struggled to stay healthy thus far in his NFL career.

Hyde will likely drop even more weight in the offseason conditioning program and through training camp this summer. He should be a terrific fit for Kelly’s zone-blocking running scheme.
