According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent in March.

Kaepernick’s play has declined in recent years after a promising start to his career. Since leading the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance in his first year as a starter, the Nevada product has failed to hold onto the reins of the 49ers offense.

His departure will leave the 49ers with an abundance of cap space to spend this offseason. This bodes well for their chances of pursuing coveted free agent Kirk Cousins this spring. If the Washington Redskins are unable to retain Cousins, look for the 49ers to make a big push for the Pro-Bowl passer.

The 49ers organization appears to be undergoing a complete overhaul, with Kyle Shanahan likely to replace Chip Kelly’s head coach post and now Kaepernick leaving.

I’m Andrew Cabatingan, and I only know three things for sure. One, any NFL kicker not named Stephen Gostkowski (GOATkowski) is absolute garbage and cannot be trusted. Two, Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback there ever was or ever will be. Three, I am prone to outbursts of Patriots homerism and any hyperbolic statements I make should be taken as sarcasm. If you’re looking for real facts about me, I suppose I would start by saying I am a sophomore at Northeastern University, I love all Boston sports, everything Game of Thrones (kudos to you if you can find the reference I made earlier), reading, singing, and arguing with strangers on the Internet. I hope that any preexisting bias due to any of this does not begin to seep into my writing, but if it does, I have the peace of mind of knowing that some snarky commenter will probably point it out.
