San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Mike Davis likely never had a quarterback throw the ball with as much zip as Colin Kaepernick does. Davis found out the hard way at 49ers OTAs just how hard it is to catch a football thrown by his quarterback. “My thumb is good, man. It was just one day,” Davis said. “My thumb was messed up because of Kap, but I’m all right. . . ...

Highlighted by two major veteran...

Yesterday the NFL made some big changes to its PAT rules. Under the new way of things, extra points will now be kicked from the 15 yard line and defenses will have a chance to score on two-point conversion attempts.

It’s crunch time for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick

Things are looking a little dicey for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the long-term. His head coach (and some would say champion) Jim Harbaugh has left to coach college ball. He’s coming off a less than awe-inspiring season and has a new coaching staff to impress. Make no mistake, Kaepernick has one, maybe two seasons to make himself the long-term answer in...

Is Mike Evans already one of the best players in the NFL?

Grabbing Jameis Winston with the first overall pick is nice, but grabbing Winston when you already have one of the league’s best young receivers is even better.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick apparently had a nice weekend in enemy territory.  Kaepernick took to Instagram to tell everyone how nice the people of Seattle were to him.
