As is the GM standard, Lynch implied on KNBR on Friday that anything is still possible at the QB position, saying the door is open to talk to Kaepernick about a return.
"(Kaepernick) was, in everyone's mind in this league, very close to signing a deal with a team at a really good number and it fell through, apparently," Lynch explained. "Here we are with two quarterbacks, but like we said, we're gonna look at every option. The likelihood of that happening has probably gone down significantly, but we're not going to close our mind or our options on anyone, including him."
There are still many depth charts left to be filled at the QB position, so it's too soon to close the book on Kaepernick finding a destination before the draft or mini camp. And while it's unlikely the divisive QB lands back in Santa Clara, we shouldn't write off Lynch, a first-year front office boss, making an unorthodox push for Kaepernick. Desperate teams adopt desperate measures.
