Trent Baalke playing Colin Kaepernick cards close to his chest

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.

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!
