Colin Kaepernick to train with Kurt Warner this offseason
Colin Kaepernick has lined up a two-time All-Pro quarterback and Super Bowl MVP to train with this offseason.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Kaepernick will work out with Kurt Warner and quarterback coach Dennis Gile in the Phoenix area in hopes of refining his game.
Kaepernick will study film and work on 7-on-7 drills with Warner
Several NFL wide receivers, including the New York Giants’ Odell Beckham and Miami’s Jarvis Landry, are expected to train at EXOS this offseason. So will a number of Kaepernick’s teammates, including receivers Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington and fullback Bruce Miller.
Two of the college players already working out there are Arizona State receiver Jaelen Strong and West Virginia receiver Kevin White. Both presumably will catch passes from Kaepernick in seven-on-seven situations. They also could be on the 49ers’ draft radar at pick No. 15.
“It’s hard to break habits in season,” Kaepernick said in December. “You don’t want to completely try to change something because it can throw off everything else you’re doing.
“There’s always things you can tighten up.”
Kaepernick appeared to regress as a passer this season in the 49ers offense. His interceptions were up, his touchdowns and yards per attempt were down and his passer rating was below 90 for the first time since replacing Alex Smith as the 49ers starter in 2012.
