Teammate says Blaine Gabbert is taking control of 49ers’ offense

Colin Kaepernick is throwing again in the 49ers’ offseason program, but that doesn’t mean he’s the guy running the show in the offense. Instead, it’s Blaine Gabbert, who usurped Kaepernick as the 49ers’ starting quarterback last season, who has taken charge. “He’s definitely taking control,” tight end Garrett Celek said of Gabbert, via CSNBayArea.com. “Whoever’s…

Colin Kaepernick resumes throwing

The draft came and went without a trade sending quarterback Colin Kaepernick away from the 49ers and the Broncos said they’re no longer interested in one, which makes it pretty likely that Kaepernick will remain with the team for the 2016 season. With that out of the way, the big question around Kaepernick switches from…

Eagles coach: Bradford still “our guy,” but haven’t spoken to him

Eagles coach Doug Pederson insists that Sam Bradford is “our guy,” and as soon as he actually talks to his expensive free agent quarterback, he’ll tell him that. Of course, he hasn’t spoken with Bradford since they traded for the No. 2 overall pick so they could grab Carson Wentz, and Bradford demanded a trade and…

Elway says Broncos are out of the Kaepernick chase

They met with him twice. There won’t be a third session.

Colin Kaepernick makes on-field appearance at 49ers minicamp

It doesn’t look like there will be a trade that sends quarterback Colin Kaepernick from the 49ers to the Broncos during the draft, something that may remain the case well after the draft as well if Kaepernick’s salary for the 2016 season continues to be more than the Broncos want to pay. Another issue that…
