49ers GM Talks Colin Kaepernick Reports, Contract

Posted Apr 25, 2014

Trent Baalke discussed his quarterback's future during his annual pre-NFL Draft roundtable with reporters.

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke still wants Colin Kaepernick to remain with the team beyond the 2014 season, even if such a deal isn't done by training camp.

"In any negotiation, to say there's a set goal, a date, a drop-dead date that you want to get something accomplished, we don't operate with that mindset," Baalke said at his annual pre-NFL Draft roundtable with reporters. "We're going to try to do in every instance what we feel is best for the organization. We're going to work dilligently like we do with all of our players that we're working on contracts with.

"Nothing's changed, but negotiations of these kind are long. They can be drawn-out; they can be very tedious. Like all, it takes a lot of work to get these deals done, and a lot of thought and engineering that goes into it."

The GM agknowledged wide-spread media reports involving a Miami investigation into Kaepernick.

"Anytime an individual puts himself in a situation that becomes newsworthy, we certainly pay attention to it. So to say there's no concern would probably be a misrepresentation of the facts; there's always concern," Baalke said. "But with the same token, let's let this thing play out and see where it goes."

Baalke was asked whether the organization has information that clears Kaepernick of wrongdoing.

"I'm not going to get into any specifics," the GM said. "There have been some reports that have come out through the Miami police and those are on public record and you can certainly read those and decipher on your own."
