San Francisco 49ers GM Trent Baalke denied trade rumors that the team was shopping their franchise quarterback.

A report that came by Jayson Braddock of KBME radio in Houston as he tweeted that they were in fact talking with the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles, Baalke says it’s not true as he released a statement.

“Colin is our quarterback and we are excited to have him,” Baalke said in a statement. “He is not going anywhere. The media reports suggesting otherwise are without merit and, quite frankly, ridiculous.”
