Kaepernick "certainly is more than open to returning to San Francisco" for the 2016 season, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday's edition of NFL Total Access.
The 49ers will owe Kaepernick his full base salary of $11.9 million if he remains on the roster April 1.
That raises the question of whether Chip Kelly wants Kaepernick as his starting quarterback on the heels of a disappointing 2015 season.
Perhaps the team's brass can use those rap sessions to explain how Kelly will breathe new life into Kaepernick's stalled career.
