49ers | Colin Kaepernick cleared for camp (Tue Jul 26, 08:23 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) has received medical clearance to participate fully in training camp, according to a source. Kaepernick had a torn left labrum repaired this offseason in addition to surgery on his right thumb and left knee.

Our View: Three surgeries this offseason kept Kaepernick out of action during minicamp and OTAs. He also lost some weight that he'll need to put back on in order to take the NFL beating most QBs endure. Blaine Gabbert is his primary competition, and we'll have to see how Kaepernick fits into the Chip Kelly system. On paper, it seems like a good fit for the veteran QB...but we want to see it on the field before we get too interested.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert praised by Jerry Rice (Fri Jul 22, 12:36 PM) - Former San Francisco 49ers WR Jerry Rice praised QB Blaine Gabbert, who will be competing for the starting quarterback job with QB Colin Kaepernick in training camp. 'I had an opportunity to meet him, and you can just tell the confidence. He feels he has a legitimate chance of being the starter. Then you got Colin Kaepernick, and I don't know if they're gonna be able to, you know, that offense of Chip Kelly because he likes to get over the ball, he likes constant movement and all of that,' Rice said.

Our View: Nick Foles wasn't thought of much more highly than Gabbert is right now before he was a stud QB1 during his first season under Chip Kelly. Gabbert doesn't have Foles' supporting cast, but he does have a terrible team that will put him in catchup game scripts all year. We wouldn't draft Gabbert, but he could be a nice cheap DFS play for some matchups and part of a streaming quarterback approach, assuming he holds off Kaepernick.

49ers | All eyes will be on QB battle (Thu Jul 21, 02:21 AM) - San Francisco 49ers QBs Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick head into training camp battling for the starting job under center. Many in the organization feel Gabbert is a better fit in head coach Chip Kelly's offense, and he has a good grasp of the offseason.

Our View: This entire situation just makes you feel ill. We do think Kaepernick could be a solid fit in Kelly's offense and find it hard to believe Gabbert is the real fit. That said, Kelly moves to the beat of his own drummer (and that guy is not exactly Neil Pert) so either outcome is possible. Gabbert did look OK last year and had a solid end to 2015 but we'd still avoid him as more than QB3.
