Saturday night, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that if the agents of QB Colin Kaepernick were able to receiver permission from the 49ers to seek out a trade, "the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans would be among the teams that would have some interest in him."
A few hours later, though, Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reported shot the report down, saying the Browns have no such interest in Kaepernick. A Texans reporter was also quick to shoot down the Texans' reported interest in Kaepernick.
Any team interested in acquiring Kaepernick would basically have the rights to a one-year deal and a cap hit of $13.425 million for him. It would also include a year-by-year option through 2020 on whether they'd want to continue with that deal (at an even higher cap hit), or cut him without any additional cost. If a trade is worked out, it seems more likely that a new contract would be negotiated along with it to ensure Kaepernick is more affordable under contract for a longer duration of time.
