Jim Trotter @JimTrotter_NFL 3m I'm told Kaepernick knew his contract's structure benefitted team, but was willing to bet on himself & take less to keep talent around him.
Jim Trotter @JimTrotter_NFL 37s Kaepernick and the 49ers discussed in detail BEFOREHAND what the structure of the deal would mean for BOTH sides. He was good with it.
Ppl hated the guy when they thought he made the most money because of course the media hype then they laughed at the guy when they found out it was much less then the amount they hated him for signing.
Lol. This deal he signed is by far the most unselfish contract any QB other than Brady has put on his team.
I hope Cam does the same thing but I already know all QB's especially the young ones are hating Kap for this one.
Setting the standards for a leader in a money hungry, greedy, team destroying feeding frenzy, known as the franchise QB contract.
