With Fitzpatrick drawing interest from other teams, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reported that the Jets are involved in trade talks with the 49ers, along with two other teams, for Colin Kaepernick.
Compensation for QB Colin Kaepernick has not yet been good enough for 49ers to make deal, source says. Broncos, Jets and Browns involved.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) March 10, 2016
According to Maiocco, the Jets have not actually shown what they're willing to offer San Francisco, but the organization has still been in communication with the 49ers. New York is most likely treading carefully because of Fitzpatrick's situation since, ideally, the team would like to resign him to a short-term deal.
Following yesterday's events, the Broncos are in need of a quarterback, and NFL Network's Michael Silver stated that Denver has selected Kaepernick as their number one option.
1) What I just reported on @nflnetwork re Broncos: Colin Kaepernick is their chief target. I believe they will go after him via trade...— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) March 10, 2016
2) The 49ers likely want a second-round pick; Broncos may be willing to part with a third. The dance continues.— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) March 10, 2016
Last month, it was reported that Gang Green had no interest in Kaepernick, and Brandon Marshall even came out against the current 49ers quarterback on ESPN's "First Take." However, with growing uncertainty on the future of Fitz, the Jets are exploring all options.
