Editor's note: The above video is from June 4, 2014 -- the day Colin Kaepernick signed his extension with the 49ers.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who received a $12.3 million signing bonus last June when he signed a contract extension with the 49ers, is now guaranteed his entire 2015 base salary.
Kaepernick’s $10.4 million base salary for the upcoming season became fully guaranteed on Wednesday as he remains on the team’s roster.
This season, Kaepernick can earn a total of $12.8 million, including a $400,000 workout bonus and $2 million in roster bonuses – or $125,000 for every regular-season game in which he is active.
Per terms of the $115.073 million contract Kaepernick signed on June 4, the 49ers fully guarantee Kaepernick’s base salaries of $10.4 million this year, $11.9 million in 2016, and $14.5 million in 2017 if he remains with the team on April 1 of those years.
Kaepernick is signed through 2020 with non-guaranteed base salaries of $15 million in 2018, $16.8 million in 2019, and $19 million in 2020.
Including workout and roster bonuses, Kaepernick is scheduled to make totals of $14.3 million in 2016, $16.9 million in 2017, $17.4 million in 2018, $19.2 million in 2019, and $21.4 million in 2020.
Kaepernick, 27, is scheduled to enter his third season as the 49ers’ starting quarterback after taking over for Alex Smith in the middle of the 2012 season.
He set career-highs with 3,369 yards passing and 639 rushing yards last season. But Kaepernick’s passer rating dropped to a career-low 86.4, as he averaged just 7.0 yards per passing attempt with 19 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions.
The 49ers open their offseason program on April 6 in Santa Clara. Kaepernick spent 10 weeks after the 49ers' season working in Arizona with independent quarterback coach Dennis Gile and two-time NFL MVP Kurt Warner.
