Rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick was drafted in 2011 by the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Jim Harbuagh to become a potential starter down the road.
But after a great season by Alex Smith, no one is sure when Kaepernick will get on the field and really show what he can do. Especially since Harbaugh has indicated that he wants Smith back.
During a question and answer on RGJ.com, Kaepernick indicated that he plans on battleing Smith for the 49ers starting job during next season’s training camp.
“I plan on being in San Francisco and plan on trying to take the starting job,” said Kaeperbick. “That’s what your goal is as a football player.”
There’s also a chance that the 49ers won;t re-sign Smith since he’s a free agent and a team may decide to pay him more then the 49ers would.
