Kaepernick seeking deal similar to Romo and Cutler


The San Francisco 49ers are trying to work out a long term deal with quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick, 26, is 17-6 as a starter and has already been to a Super Bowl and two NFC Championship games. Those stats numbers have Kaepernick seeking out a deal that rivals the ones given to Tony Romo and Jay Cutler according to the Boston Globe.

Romo was given a deal which will pay him $18 million a season, with $40 million guaranteed while Cutler is currently making $18.1 million with $38 million guaranteed.

It is hard to envision the 49ers not re-signing Kaepernick but things could get interesting if he is left to play with his base salary of just  $973,766 in 2014.

Kaepernick completed 58.4-percent of his passes last season for 3,197 yards, 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He added another 524 yards rushing with four touchdowns.
