Last week brought word that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would like to be something other than a 49ers quarterback during the 2016 season and wants to be traded to another team.
The 49ers haven’t said whether Kaepernick made such a request, although owner Jed York said he thinks the quarterback can be “a big piece of what we’re doing.” Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that the Texans and Browns are interested in making Kaepernick a piece of what they’re doing, but another report from Houston has the Texans taking the opposite view of a potential trade.
The Texans have made no secret about their desire to find a lasting solution at quarterback this offseason, but John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans have “no interest” in trading for Kaepernick.
If the 49ers do decide to make a trade, linking Kaepernick to the teams most in need of quarterback is a good way to try to get other clubs to make offers for his services. For the moment, though, the Texans appear to have no interest in being involved.
