NFL player Colin Kaepernick is suing the NFL

In the latest San Francisco 49ers news, Colin Kaepernick reportedly changed agents ahead of what could be a busy off-season for him. The quarterback left XAM Sports and from now on will be working with Jeff Nalley of Select Sports Group when it comes to his future deals. 

The Sacramento Bee reported Kaepernick's move and mentioned that Nalley already handled negotiations for him during the 2016 NFL season when his contract was restructured. XAM Sports' relationship with the 49ers quarterback lasted for almost six years. The agency represented him from the day he got selected in the second round (36th overall) of the 2011 draft until the recent split. 

Kaepernick is expected to have an eventful off-season because of his current deal with the 49ers. They can either make him stay or choose to let him go, although he also has the power to decide. The 29-year-old has a player option for this year and he could opt out to test free agency waters.

The future of Kaepernick will be more clear once his meeting with 49ers GM John Lynch takes place. Lynch is one of the newest members of the organization together with Coach Kyle Shanahan. They are both aiming to bring the organization back on the winning track and it starts at the quarterback position.

Lynch said last week that he and Shanahan are going to speak with Kaepernick and they are ready to "commit" if they see him as part of what they are trying to do in San Francisco. The former Nevada standout is the only quarterback they have under contract. 

Following a horrible 2016 season, it is hard to imagine Kaepernick remaining in San Francisco. He and Blaine Gabbert struggled mightily as the two quarterbacks used by the team. The 49ers finished with a 2-14 record and missed the playoffs for the third consecutive year.
