BREAKING: Colin Kaepernick Opts Out of Contract to Become a Free Agent

It’s a new year, new season, and a new team for the San Francisco 49ers. The organization has made a major overhaul of personnel, bringing in NFL legend John Lynch to serve as general manager, with Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan tabbed to be the next head coach.
With that in mind, former franchise quarterback Colin Kaepernick saw the writing on the wall, and decided to duck out with grace rather than serve another year waiting for a chance to see the field. 
According to reports, Kaepernick is opting out of his contract to become a free agent this offseason and take his talents elsewhere. 
​​This is probably the smarter move for both sides. 
The 49ers were almost definitely not going to include Kaepernick in their future plans, and would have either cut him or prayed he did what he has now done, opt out. Now instead, Kaepernick can choose whichever team he wants in free agency to get a new contract with. 
Who picks him up? Well, that’s the next question.
