Colin Kaepernick would love to have all his guys there for minicamp this week.
But having just been through a contract negotiation of his own, he understands why guard Alex Boone and tight end Vernon Davis might not be there.
“I would love to see all of our players there, but at the same time, they have to do what’s best for them and make their own decisions,” Kaepernick said, via Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group. “I’ve talked to both and I’m not going to speak on another person’s situation but I support them and they’re great people.
“They’re grown men, so you can’t say what they should or shouldn’t do. That’s their right. But I know all our players support each other and everybody would love to have them.”
Now that Kaepernick’s got his, it’s important for him not to come off as heavy handed when asking for attendance, lest he lose some of the support he has within the locker room.
