San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has something in common with a few iconic NFL quarterbacks.

The versatile gunslinger was pursued by Chicago before he landed in the Bay Area. 

When I say Chicago I don’t mean the Bears.

I speak of the Cubs that drafted Kaepernick to play  in the big leagues just like guys such as John Elway. The only problem was he wanted no part of it.

Tim Wilken and Sam Hughes run the Cubs scouting department and told the story to the Sun Times about what it was like to track Kaepernick to the University of Nevada after his stellar high school career.

  • Colin Kaepernick is the second coming of Randall Cunningham! Watch out record books!! He could have played in the MLB as well! What a natural athlete and nice guy.
