The San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick agreed to a restructured contract, giving their quarterback a new one-year deal with a player option that can be extended for the 2017 season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
As a result of the new terms, Kaepernick’s remaining four years are now invalidated, and there are no injury guarantees in his contract.
Kaepernick can void the contract at the end of the season, and become an unrestricted free agent if he so desires, and the 49ers will not be able to use the franchise tag on him.
The quarterback was expected to make $14.5 million in base salary for the 2017 season prior to Wednesday’s revision.
Kaepernick will make his first start of the season Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.
