  • Coach Kyle Shanahan: No QBs on 49ers' roster

    Kyle Shanahan spoke at the NFL combine on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Colin Kaepernick is expected to opt out of his 49ers contract, perhaps Thursday. That would put him in a position to be a free agent for the first time when the new NFL year begins March 9. It also would leave coach Kyle Shanahan with no quarterbacks signed for the 2017 season.
