Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting Colin Kaepernick’s six-year extension is worth up to $120 million, with $61 million guaranteed, the latter of which is a record. He says there are incentives that can push the deal to $21 million a year.
Obviously, this will influence the money Russell Wilson will be looking for.
