DM: “San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has purchased a $3.21million condominium in Manhattan. Kaepernick, who recently put his San Jose, California home up on the market, bought a 1,733 sq ft unit with two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The apartment building in TriBeCa also features oversized windows, a whirlpool tub in the master bathroom and vaulted ceilings.”
Why sell your house if you plan to play in San Fran?
Kaepernick renegotiated in October voiding his long term deal for a new one year voidable contract. I do not recall the financial terms. He can exit after this season for free agency.
It’s not difficult to find people who believe Kaepernick has really been stepping it up. No doubt he may think the time is right for free agency. He ranks toward the bottom of the league in passing and certainly no fault of someone such as Vance McDonald. He too becomes a free agent at the end of the season. Torrey Smith has several years left on his contract.
I found the pass ranking for Kaepernick, it’s 24th. The point being just on performance numbers alone, who would be fighting for him? He has the line and the receivers yet no production. Why would a new environment help?
California does not accept his attitude, why would New York be different? New York has never cared who you are but has always demanded performance. One must also consider the coaches. Why would they want him? Why does the NFL want the sagging ratings?
