Golden Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick's deal called 'team-friendly'

Christian Petersen

Friday, June 6th, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. Did Colin Kaepernick get paid, or what? That's obviously the biggest news of the past couple days, but I haven't had a chance to weigh in on things since I don't do the Nuggets every day. My initial reaction was that it was a good contract for the 49ers, and right in line with Kaepernick's value on the market. At the actual dollar amounts, I have to say that I think he's being overpaid given what we've seen on the field, but the market dictates, doesn't it?

Then yesterday, we heard all the extra information regarding the contract, and the guaranteed money that could potentially be lost. I think I speak for all of us when I say that I hope the 49ers pay out every single dime of that contract, because it means they'll be winning. I also think the insurance policy is interesting, and I wrote about that yesterday -- I think it could end up being standard in future negotiations.

Oh and I still don't think Vernon Davis is the next, or even the one after the next, priority.
