San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke is on hand at the NFL owners' meetings, but things remain relatively quiet on the Colin Kaepernick trade front. He spoke briefly with media, and not a whole lot of much came out of it.
#49ers GM Trent Baalke says he has had "discussions with several teams" regarding #ColinKaepernick and "it's gone no farther than that."— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) March 22, 2016
GM Trent Baalke said he has not held any meaningful talks with anyone at NFL owners meetings (in a question, of course, about Kaepernick).— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) March 22, 2016
On that latter tweet, I can just picture Trent Baalke sitting at the hotel bar, drinking his beverage or eating his food, and just sort of ignoring everybody around him. Or maybe, he sees John Elway on the other side of the bar, and they both just pretend there's nothing going on. They just sit checking out what's on TV, playing hard-to-get over Colin Kaepernick.
There are now 10 days until April 1. I believe Colin Kaepernick's base salary would become fully guaranteed at 1 p.m. PT on April 1, but I'm not quite certain of the time. If nothing has happened by mid-day on March 31, I can guarantee you we'll have some kind of count-down thread!
