Kaepernick signed to record deal

Posted: 6/4/2014 3:42 PM

Kaepernick signed to record deal 


Kaepernick $21M a year over 6 years.

49ers had a nice advantage (w/ the Seahawks) of having a bargain price on their most important position over the last few years.  How well do they hold up when then pay ~20% of their cap to one guy?

Jay Cutler's deal is looking better by the ninute. They severely overpaid him

I thought the same thing when I read that. Wilson is going to get an absolutely insane price from the Seahawks.

That's a lot of money for a guy that runs a lot. Just like RG3 these running fools won't last long.

Pretty insane that one person takes up 20% of the cap...  I see more commercial breaks and games lasting 6 hours to pay these guys in the next few years lol.  I read they are going to add a week to the play offs... If so the salary cap should go up and we will see baseball numbers in what these guys get paid...

I think he's a little more solidly built than RG3, avoids big hits a lot better, and waited until the playoffs to run a lot.  During the regular season he was more of a pocket guy.  But he also wasn't nearly as effective.  If he doesn't develop a better pocket passing game and feels pressured to run more for success, than his chances do go way up for injury.

I know Wilson will get his but think what Andrew Luck is going to get. He already has taken his team to the playoffs twice and I think if you would ask the GM's around the league, "Who is the one player you would build a franchise around?" Luck would probably be the top guy. He will end up being the highest paid QB when his contract extension comes around.

Totally agree, luck would be the hands down #1 pick. If you don't pick him, you're fired.

Interesting perspective here. As usual with NFL contracts, the headline grabbing "6 years, $126 million" is horribly misleading.

Not sure I understand this.  Wilson has been on the cheap for Seattle for the last two years too. Maybe you are referring to how the Flynn deal hit the Seahawks in dead money?

Re: Kaepernick signed to record deal 


That is a great deal for San Fran when you consider Kaepernick is the third-highest-rated quarterback in the NFL since his first start in Week 11 of 2012, behind only Peyton Manning, and Aaron Rodgers. Kaepernick is tied for fourth in the league in victories and ranks in the top 7 in yards per pass attempt and yards per rush.

LMAO! So in Soupy's world, Kapernick's win total in SF counts but Cutler's record over the past 4 seasons (32-19) doesn't. Soupy logic at it's finest.
