According to multiple sources the San Francisco 49ers and their franchise QB Colin Kaepernick have agreed to a six-year deal worth over $100 million. The deal keeps Kaepernick in red and gold via the 2020 season and ends any discussion of a future holdout after the 2014 season.

The deal is worth up to $126 million according to Sacramento Bee’s Matt Barrows and the $61 million in guaranteed money is the most in NFL history.
