Colin Kaepernick signed a seven-year, $126.97 million contract 2014 and was set to be the teams franchise quarterback for years to come.
Two-years into his seven year contract deal, Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers agreed to a contract re-structure that could see him on his way out of the Bay Area before the start of the next season.
Kaepernick is expected to opt out of the final year of his contract, after the contract re-structure. But, if he does not, it is likely the 49ers would release him to avoid paying for his scheduled $14.9 million salary.
We look at the top 5 landing spots Colin Kaepernick could land for next season.
5 Washington Redskins
If Kirk Cousin and the Washington Redskins decide to part ways then that would leave a massive void that would need to be replaced immediately.
Current contracted QB backups Colt McCoy and rookie Nate Sudfelt are far from QB 1 level and the Redskins would require a emergency replacement and Kaepernick maybe the man to fill that void.
