NFL Notes: Colin Kaepernick, Brandon Carr, & Draft

Colin Kaepernick

  • Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee writes that even if QB Colin Kaepernick is on the 49ers’ roster as of April 1 when his 2016 salary becomes guaranteed, there’s still a chance he could be traded.
  • According to Barrows, Kaepernick could ultimately agree to restructure his contract to facilitate a trade to another team.
  • Barrows believes trade talks involving Kaepernick could pick up once Ryan Fitzpatrick signs with other Jets or Broncos.

Brandon Carr

Cowboys CB Brandon Carr said he plans to be back in Dallas next year, despite reports that he could be cut or asked to take a pay cut.

“I do, unless you guys know something I don’t know,” Carr said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I just prepare for whatever happens and be ready. Right now, my thought process is get my body ready, get my mind mentally ready for the grind, and just be ready for wherever action comes.

Carr wouldn’t say whether the team had approached him about reducing his salary, and stressed that he loves playing for the Cowboys.

“You know I don’t like to talk about those things,” Carr said. “I’ll let that side, that situation handle itself outside the media. What I will tell you is that I just love being a Cowboy; I love being in Dallas and the community. I look forward to playing another year.

  • Tony Pauline reports that the Browns had their inside linebacker coach on hand Southern Utah’s Miles Killebrew Pro Day, which is interesting considering that some see him as a safety.
  • According to Pauline, defensive line coaches from the Eagles, Titans, Steelers and Bengals all put South Carolina State’s Javon Hargrave through a workout and met with him afterwards.
