San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently appeared on ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue where athletes pose in the nude (Fine! I’ll give you the link.) From CBSSports.com, 49ers safety Donte Whitner was asked what he thought about Kaepernick’s decision to appear in the magazine and it doesn’t sound like Whitner nor his teammates are going to give their quarterback a free pass. “He’s the man right now, and that’s what he chose to do,” Donte Whitner said. “But he’s going to receive some flak in the locker room Whitener was also asked if he would ever do the same thing. I would never do that,” Whitner said on the Bull and Fox radio show. “To each his own. I don’t know about all the naked pictures and the lower body. I’m a little bit against that, but to each his own Kaepernick is probably already expecting some teasing about the situation and won’t care. When you’re in the third year of your career and you just came off a season that not only showed your worth but also ended with a trip to the Super Bowl, you can take all the nude pictures you wont. Just don’t show them to anybody. Need NFL Tickets? Loading... The post Donte Whitner on Kaepernick posing nude: He’ll “receive some flak in the locker room” appeared first on Pro Football Zone.

Kaepernick’s Hat: Lessons yet to be learned in maturity

It doesn’t come close to the Aaron Hernandez arrest. It didn’t involve breaking any laws or hurting anyone. It doesn’t even warrant a suspension from the 49ers organization. Instead, it was just a young quarterback showing his immaturity and disloyalty to an organization. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently was photographed donning a Miami Dolphins hat...

2013 Fantasy Football – Tight Ends – Should You Draft A TE Early?

    Last year, you only wanted two tight ends, Gronk and Graham, who both are coming off record-breaking years and expected to revolutionize how this position was drafted in leagues moving forward.  However, with Gronk’s recent injuries and potentially missing some part of the season, I would say to target Graham early, after these two tight ends, there is a drop-off.  If you...

Beware of Kaepernick, Wilson

Caution is not one of my fortes. It was absent when I tried to pull off that sick wheelie in grade school, only to descend upon a parked car's windshield. I could cut off a few strokes from my golf game employing restraint instead of John Daly's "Aw, why the hell not?" mentality.
