The San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have parted ways.
Kaepernick’s representatives informed teams earlier this week that he would be opting out of the final year of his contract with the 49ers.
However, even if Kaepernick hadn’t exercised that option, he wouldn’t have been back with the 49ers under the terms of his current contract. Niners general manager John Lynch told SiriusXM radio on Thursday afternoon that the team would have released Kaepernick had he not chosen to opt out of the deal.
With that said, the 49ers are not ruling out a Kaepernick return:
“We left that door open in a very real and positive way.” Lynch said Thursday at the NFL combine.
Where do you think Colin Kaepernick will end up?
