Kaepernick’s Debut a Dud as Niners Pounded by Bills 45-16 in Buffalo

San Francisco 49ers v Buffalo Bills

LeSean McCoy scored three times and the Buffalo Bills extended their winning streak to four with a 45-16 victory over San Francisco and new starter Colin Kaepernick Sunday.

McCoy had 140 yards rushing and shook off what appeared to be a frightening injury to his right knee late in the second quarter. Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdown passes in helping Buffalo win four straight for the first time since the start of the 2008 season.

Kaepernick provided the 49ers a spark in his first start in nearly a year. Blaine Gabbert was benched following a 33-21 loss to Arizona.

Kaepernick finished 13 of 29 for 187 yards, including a 53-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith. But San Francisco (1-5) couldn’t finish drives, settling for three field goals by Phil Dawson, in losing its fifth straight game.

QB Colin Kaepernick and 49ers Restructure Contract

San Francisco 49ers v New Orleans Saints

The 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have signed a restructuring of his deal, wiping out the final four years and turning it into a one-year contract with a player option to extend the deal for next year, Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan of ESPN report.

The monetary value of the deal for this year remains the same.

Kaepernick can void the deal after this season, before the new league year begins in March, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent if he so chooses. The 49ers will not be allowed to use their franchise tag on him.

If Kaepernick doesn’t void deal — to either sign elsewhere or work out a new deal with the Niners — his contract terms for 2017 are the same: $14.5 million salary, but no guaranteed money.

Given that whether or not Kaepernick is on the roster is ultimately up to him, his 46-man roster bonuses are converted into guaranteed salary. A playing-time bonus is also part of the restructured deal.

The two sides have spent months trying to rework the contract — dating back to San Francisco’s trade conversations with Denver last spring — but the talks heated up over the past four weeks and now have been successfully completed.

Asked on Tuesday if he felt any pressure to have a reworked contract before he started Sunday’s game, Kaepernick said, “No, I feel no pressure.” But he did acknowledge, “We have had discussions.”

Chip Kelly Names Colin Kaepernick 49’ers Starting QB for Week Six


After watching another awful performance by his offense on Thursday night against the Cardinals, today 49’ers coach Chip Kelly made it official – a change has been made at quarterback.

The 28-year-old Kaepernick has made a lot more headlines off the field than on the field this season. Last season he threw for 1615 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions.

Blaine Gabbert, who Kaepernick is replacing, has thrown for 890 yards this season, with five touchdowns and six interceptions. He’s started all five games for the Niners, who are 1-4 and set to face the 3-2 Bills on the road Sunday.
