Four potential landing spots for Colin Kaepernick in 2016

Who would have known back in September that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be ousted from his starting job and eventually wind up on the team’s IR two-thirds of the way into the season?

And to add insult to injury after being replaced by Blaine Gabbert, the 49ers have the poor quarterback’s No. 7 jersey on sale at a discounted price.

With the writing painfully obvious on the wall, it is highly likely after the end of the season Kaepernick will be traded or released in order to free up the large cap of salary space he occupies.

Therefore, the mobile quarterback who perhaps just needs a fresh start is clearly worth evaluating for another team in need of an upgrade next season.
