Well after a season where he had no reliable weapons, no run game, or O-Line, and was benched and replaced by Blaine Gabbert after an injury, Colin Kaepernick officially wants out of San Francisco. But he made it very clear where he wants to play, and that is the New York Jets.
He's going to be in the same situation he's in right now, maybe even worse. Staying in San Francisco means he will be in a situation where he can certainly reclaim that #1 QB status, whereas, in New York, he's competing for a second-string spot and possibly even a roster spot. That all depends on how well Geno Smith performs during camp. Ryan Fitzpatrick is there guy, if not Todd Bowles', then definitely Brandon Marshall's who came out and said, "I got Fitz."
It'll really look bad if Kaepernick leaves San Fran mid-rebuild. It shows other organizations that you aren't going to be their guy when things get rough. It shows them that you're a quitter and you put zero faith in the organization that they will put you in the best position to win.
Clearly Kap wasn't watching the games at the end of this season, because the 49ers were playing some pretty inspired football. We caught a glimpse of how guys like Vance MacDonald and Sean Draughn could perform down the road offensively as weapons in Kaepernick's arsenal. We also saw how good Trumaine Brock is and how he could potentially be a solid cornerback for years to come.
Kap, do us all a favor, stay in San Francisco. It's what is best for you. You're not going to play with the Jets, you'll be a number 2 at best there. Show the organization that traded Alex Smith away because YOU were the future of the team that you're going to stand by them. Be a leader, not a quitter.
