Colin Kaepernick wraps up OTAs, will earn workout bonus

New, comments

The 49ers OTAs are complete, and we can see who earned some big money through workout bonuses.

The San Francisco 49ers have just about wrapped up their 2016 offseason workout program. They completed OTAs on Thursday, and now have their mandatory minicamp on Thursday. The offseason workout program is voluntary, but the team is allowed to host a mandatory minicamp. The mandatory minicamp is where you figure out who the real holdout candidates are, but for the most part, everyone should be in attendance.

The close of the voluntary portion of the offseason workout program gives us an idea of who has earned their offseason workout bonuses. The 49ers have numerous players who's contract includes a pay day for showing up for 90 percent of the offseason program. Torrey Smith leads the way with a $1 million workout bonus. He was present throughout, and thus will cash in nicely.

The next highest belongs to Colin Kaepernick, who has a $400,000 workout bonus. There was concern among fans that he would hold out if not traded. But things have settled down, and he was there for the entire program. He spent most of his field time working with the training staff to rehab his injuries, but it still counts as attendance. He left for Colorado multiple times to check in with his surgeon, but otherwise has been on hand.

Kaepernick has not been medically cleared to practice thus far. He has been throwing with the training staff on a side field, although on Thursday he was seen throwing with the other quarterbacks in warmups. He could be cleared for next week's minicamp, but my guess is the training staff just waits it out to clear him for the start of training camp. That will give him two months to get the shoulder completely healthy.

The 49ers will finish up their mandatory minicamp next Thursday, and then everybody will part ways for a little over a month and a half. Training camp gets going July 31. Between minicamp and training camp, players can still workout at the facility, but they cannot work with the coaching staff. I believe strength and conditioning coaches can keep an eye on players to make sure they don't get hurt working out, but otherwise, no coach/player football interaction.
