Report: 49ers hoping to sign Kaepernick to an extension before training camp

kaepernickAccording to,  the 49ers are expected to make some moves in order to free up more cap space to sign Colin Kaepernick to an extension.

The 49ers are likely to make some cap adjustments this offseason to sign their remaining draft picks and, perhaps, quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a lucrative contract extension.

The Niners are hoping to get something done before training camp starts.

The 49ers would like to complete Kaepernick’s new contract before the start of training camp in late-July. Quarterback Joe Flacco had a first-year salary cap figure of $6.8 million after signing a deal that averaged $20 million a season last year with the Baltimore Ravens. Kaepernick currently counts $1.63 million against the 49ers’ 2014 cap.
