Also tonight, the full details of Colin Kaepernick’s contract have emerged, with the general consensus that this is a pretty good deal for the 49ers given the quarterback market.
Here are a few applicable links:
— ProFootballTalk breaks it down in detail and also added this commentary on Twitter:
Source says 49ers are "thrilled" with the Kaepernick deal. They should be. It's a below-market, year-to-year deal. http://t.co/Qmgq4BFXVI

— ESPN’s Mike Sando polled some NFL insiders to see which QBs are deserving of big extensions with Russell Wilson second on the list after Andrew Luck. Wrote Sando of Wilson:
Wilson hasn’t been asked to carry his team consistently. He has done it on occasion, and done it very well. But with only two years as a starter for a team with a dominant defense and running game, some of the comments I heard fell on the more conservative side. People want to see more, and again, Wilson is one of the passers who is ineligible to negotiate until after 2014.
