    True. He should have really focused on different types of training. That was his downfall.

    That's 47 players, and includes the dead money from Woodley.

    Ben's price tag may have gone up a little higher once again...

    Colin Kaepernick extended through 2020 season
    Posted by Darin Gantt on June 4, 2014, 4:03 PM EDT

    It didn’t take the 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick long to work out a deal once they were in the same room.

    According to multiple reports, they agreed to a six-year contract extension which will be worth more than $100 million, and tie him to the team through the 2020 season.

    According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, it could be worth up to $126 million, with $60 million guaranteed.

    As always, the devil will reside in the financial details of this deal.

    But suffice it to say the 49ers believe their quarterback did nothing wrong in Miami, and will do many things right in the future.

    Kaepernick = overrated

    They will regret this contract. This is the beginning of the 49ers losing that loaded roster. You can't pay everyone.

    Its possible that I'm being naive when I say this but I don't believe other qb's in the lg are going to drive up Ben's price. I see him taking a very friendly but respectable against his peers kind of contract to 1. Help the team field the best team possible. 2. Retire a Steeler. He's not going to be a diva when it comes to his contract....Joe flacco for example. The ravens suffered because he had to be paid like the big boy he isn't....
