The Jets lost starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a thumb injury and the San Francisco 49ers have reportedly benched their onetime franchise quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. Seems like a match made in heaven right?
Think again. The Jets will probably pass on Colin Kapernick at the trade deadline and in this off-season.
While Colin has a massive 110 million dollar contract, it is very team friendly. He only has the 5.5. million left this year guaranteed, so he can be cut and a team start from scratch.
The bigger question: Is Kaepernick salvageable? At the moment, Colin is in the midst of a two year decline. To his defense, San Fran hasn't done a great job surrounding him with rising young talent, but there are plenty of signal callers in the NFL that have less weapons and are thriving (Cam Newton for example).
