Are the 49ers done with Colin Kaepernick or is he done with them?

Kaepernick wants to be traded. The head coach may or may not want to keep him, and they're already talking to QBs at the combine this week. What gives?

Colin Kaepernick wants to be traded. The biggest news from the combine on Thursday was a report that the 49ers quarterback has asked the team for permission to seek a trade. Of course, that doesn't exactly square up with Chip Kelly's "our job is acquiring talent, not getting rid of talent" statement.

But maybe they're going a different route in the draft, since the 49ers met with QB Dak Prescott at the combine. The San Francisco 49ers need to figure out their quarterback situation. They have met with one so far at the NFL Combine. I imagine they will meet with more.
