Donte Whitner: Kaepernick will get flak from teammates for posing nude

AP

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently riled up some folks by being photographed while wearing a Dolphins cap and now he may be in for some razzing in his own locker room for wearing nothing at all.

During an appearance on the Bull and Fox Show on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland, via CBSSports.com, 49ers safety Donte Whitner was asked about Kaepernick’s decision to pose in the altogether for ESPN the Magazine‘s Body Issue. Whitner said that he wouldn’t show the full monty and that Kaepernick’s choice to do so will be met with some razzing in the team’s locker room when everyone gathers for 49ers training camp.

“He’s the man right now, and that’s what he chose to do,” Whitner said. “But he’s going to receive some flak in the locker room.”

Kaepernick doesn’t have much to be embarrassed about, but the nature of life in the locker room means that the photos are going to be fodder for jokes. It shouldn’t go much beyond that unless a picture surfaces of Kaepernick covering up any parts of himself with a Seahawks cap.

    Posing nude and kissing your bicep?

    Dude is a complete tool….

  2. You mean he doesn’t take enough flak just from what they see in the locker-room …

    I think Whitner needs to worry about his cover skills more than what is covering Kaep!

  3. At least he didn’t have a nude phone pic leaked by some groupie. This day and age with what some athletes do(show). ESPN body is nothing.

  4. His teammates are probably going to keep trying to slip ones and fives into his jock strap

    He’s gonna be catching much more flak this next year once he gets exposed and they miss the playoffs.

    Hey look at that. Regurgitated drivel from last year except with Kaep’s name in place for Alex Smith. Hate to break your poor whittle heart but it ain’t happenin just like it didn’t happen last year. The team likely to pull the flop lile the lions did from 2011 to last year will be the anointed pre season champ seahawks. There’s a ton of pressure to perform now. They won’t be sneaking up on anyone and the league is onto their juicing habits

    Haha yeah I’m sure people wanna see that skinny turd naked

    20 13
    ==================================
    So 13 out of 33 want to see this guy naked?
    Strange times we live in.

  9. Damn, I thought he might model some of those Chinese Levis jeans,but to show off Mr. Winkie is a little much. Unless that’s the new face of the franchise.

  10. The only flak should be given to Whitner and his coverage skills or lack thereof. Most Niner fans would agree.

  11. He should get more flak for his desire to play in Miami while under contract.

    Just another sign that Harbaugh is wearing thin.

  12. This guy is a one year wonder and this will be over after the season and the 49ers will be looking for a new quarterback.

    how ghetto does one have to be to have that many tats?

Honestly, I have nothing against the guy as an athlete, but it’s impossible to deny he’s a little bit screwy. Even putting this and the dolphins hat aside, the fact that he got enormous new tattoos to commemorate losing a Super Bowl really says a lot.

    And that’s not to wish him harm, or say he won’t succeed; just that Walter Payton/Reggie White/Drew Brees/Robert Griffin, he is not.

  14. To get that much attention and hate for a guy that barely played a full season shows how great Colin Kaep is. He hasn’t even showed his full potential. You guys are going to hate him even more when he makes your team look like pop warner.

  15. I was impressed with the way Kaep conducted himself last season. Seemed very mature and level headed. However, I’m starting to rethink that. One appearance in a Super Bowl and he’s suddenly going Hollywood? This past week, he’s been acting more like a young Matt Leinert or Reggie Bush than the Kaepernick I was growing to respect.

  16. Dude is 6’4″ and 230 lbs. Who called him a “skinny turd” ?

    He’s got the skills to continue the tradition of redefining the QB position. He’s flat out fast and shifty runner. He’s got a pitcher’s arm from, not surprisingly, being a pitcher (and was drafted for that too). I think he’s got a LOT working in his favor including a GM that keeps loading up on talent around him, a coach that can reel him in when needed and an offensive coordinator that undertands his skill set. I’m not heading up his fan club by any means, but a lot would have to go wrong for this guy to not be successful. And by all accounts, he has the desire and work ethic to make it happen.

  17. I am still laughing about him and Vernon Davis naked for ESPN. You can’t make this stuff up…I mean even his teammates will be clowning this Sanchez 2.0

  18. Hes started at QB for just over a half year. It seems to me hes enjoying the attention a little too much. Its OK to not accept EVERY opportunity to draw attention to yourself. Just sayin…

  19. Hey, I’m OK with anything that keeps the Ahmad Brooks incident out of the media spotlight….

  20. Keep getting your muscles bigger, wearing dolphins hats, tats, and posing nude for magazines colin. Russell Wilson will keep studying film and throwing with his team mates.

    Really you put IRGIII with that group?

  22. Until this week, NFL insiders have been saying that Kaepernick, RGIII, and Russell Wilson have a lot in common both on and off the field. … Now, Kaep is setting himself apart OFF he field.

    Not sure it’s in a good way.

  23. It is great that Whitner and Kap have in common that they were both recently seen by millions out of their jocks. The only problem is that Whitner was faked out of his jock during the Superbowl.

    He moved out of black Milwaukee when he was 3. Please don’t associate us with that shovel he calls a nose.

  25. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson is spending all his time in the film room, attending charities, and inspirational speaking to kids.

  26. Gronk had the smiley face last year 🙂 This is an issue about beautiful bodies. I’m not a tat person, but, he’s has a great body. Admit it, all you men making fun of him… you’d flaunt your body if it looked like that! Then again, I know a bunch of 40 year old guys that love to flaunt their bodies, just look at all the pics on facebook. They don’t have 6 pack abs… more like kegs. Don’t be jealous boys, I’m sure you all have great personalities.

    Now, do you gents object to the women posing in that mag? Hmmm… I hear crickets.

    Like it or not; like him or not, Griffin has been a model citizen and great sportsman since he enrolled at Baylor. While we can wait another season for judgments on talent, we have enough of a sample size to conclude that he is already one of the league’s class acts.
