San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick could still return to the team next season.
Asked if Kaepernick is done with the 49ers, Baalke told reporters, “I wouldn't say that at all. I think people are reading into that.”
Baalke signed Kaepernick to a six-year, $114 million extension prior to the 2014 season. The 49ers can release Kaepernick before April of next year and owe him less than $8 million moving forward.
If Kaepernick, who will have shoulder surgery, is not healthy by April 1, his salary for next season is guaranteed.
