SANTA CLARA -- Colin Kaepernick, whose representatives requested permission to seek a trade from the 49ers in the offseason, did not speak with 49ers general manager Trent Baalke through the team's offseason program.
Last week, Baalke said he recently spoke with Kaepernick, characterizing it as a “good conversation.”
Kaepernick said, “We had a conversation.”
When asked about his rapport with Baalke, Kaepernick said, “We have a business relationship. That’s the point that we’re at.”
Those close to Kaepernick were not pleased with the team's handling of his injuries from last season, including the torn labrum in his left shoulder that forced season-ending surgery in November.
Kaepernick was asked if he was satisfied with how the team responded to his shoulder situation.
“Once again, I’m not getting into all of the specifics, anything like that,” he said. “We’re focusing on football and my focus right now is this game Friday.”
The NFL has not cleared Kaepernick to wear a tinted visor during the regular season. But he said he plans to wear it during the exhibition season while awaiting final word from the league office.
