Colin Kaepernick to work with Kurt Warner in offseason

Print

Colin Kaepernick has settled on his cadre of quarterback gurus this offseason, and the list includes a former Super Bowl MVP.

NFL Media's Kurt Warner, who is part of Dennis Gile's EXOS Phoenix-based sports performance crew, will assist Kaepernick in 7-on-7 drills and other mental parts of the game, according to The Sacramento Bee.

Gile, a former NFL, CFL and AFL quarterback, will also have Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry on site this offseason alongside 49ers receivers like Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington.

His previous "projects" include Tim Tebow and Christian Ponder.

However, it doesn't sound like Gile is considering Kaepernick a grand undertaking, and he probably shouldn't. The 49ers quarterback reached a Super Bowl and conference title game in three years as a starter and has an overall record of 25-14.

Between 2012 and 2014, he's thrown 50 touchdowns to just 21 picks and is hitting on his passes at 60 percent.

"If we can teach him (consistency and efficiency), then I think he becomes one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL," Gile said. "Because you can't teach the natural talents that he has."

Jeff Garcia had previously offered to tutor Kaepernick and the overall list was probably much longer than that. Anyone attaching their name to a quarterback with this much talent knows there isn't much they'll need to tinker with.
