Lynch mentioned during an interview with KNBR that they had a “really a positive discussion” with Kaepernick and all parties “left excited.”
“We’ve only been on the job a couple weeks,” said Lynch, via the Sacramento Bee. “I can tell you, we both really very much being around Colin and he seems like he’s in a real good place.”
Kaepernick has said previously that he doesn’t plan to opt out of his contract and would be open to returning to the 49ers next year. However, it seems likely that the 49ers wouldn’t want to keep him at his current salary.
Matt Barrows doesn’t rule out the possibility of San Francisco bringing him back a reduced salary, depending on what they do at quarterback in the coming months.
Western Michigan WR Corey Davis is in the discussion to be the No. 1 receiver to come off the board this year, but there appears to be some concerns about whether he’s a true top-tier receiving prospect.
“Davis definitely has the size, route-running ability and production to be an eventual starter,” an AFC executive tells Bucky Brooks of NFL.com. “I like him, but I have some concerns about his speed and ability to thrive against top competition. Watch him against Wisconsin and Ohio State (2015), and you’ll see him struggle a bit. … He does have some ‘wow’ to him and I respect the skill set, but I’m not convinced that he is a No.1.”
Brooks compares Davis to Packers WR Jordy Nelson and can see the Eagles, Cardinals, Titans and Buccaneers being intriguing options for him.
