Kaepernick played for the 49ers from 2011 to 2016. He replaced an injured Alex Smith in 2012 and led the 49ers to a 5-2 record down the stretch. The season culminated in an NFC Championship and a Super Bowl appearance.

The team was narrowly defeated by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2013 Super Bowl, 34-31. Kaepernick got the Niners back to the conference title game the following season but lost to the Seattle Seahawks.
In 2016, Kaepernick set off a firestorm in the NFL when he decided to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial discrimination and social injustice. He and the 49ers parted ways after that season.
Kaepernick has maintained he’s been staying ready for when an NFL team decides to take a chance on him.
