Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been a busy man during the offseason. Whether it be working out in Atlanta with his teammates, signing autographs for fans in the Bay Area or taking in a Los Angeles Clippers game courtside, Kaepernick is staying occupied. On Monday, the young signal-caller visited ESPN to discuss his candidacy to be on the cover of the Madden 25th Anniversary edition set to come out later this year.
The 49ers are well-represented in the bracket-style tournament which will crown the newest Madden cover boy, as Joe Montana and Jerry Rice join Kaepernick as No. 1 seeds. Kaepernick also stopped by the set of SportsNation to take on host Charissa Thompson in a football-throwing competition that involved nightvision goggles.
The rest of today’s Morning Tailgate focuses on the 2013 free agency period, which opens at 1 p.m.
