Analysis: The six-year veteran quarterback who drew particular attention and headlines last season by not standing for the national anthem, met with new general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan before making the move. His decision leaves the team with no quarterbacks on the roster. Gabbert and Christian Ponder also are free agents.

Analysis: This is the outcome most have expected ever since Kaepernick agreed to restructure his deal in October, though he can't officially opt out until March 2. It's hard to gauge what interest the six-year veteran will draw on the open market, as he's coming off back-to-back down seasons and carries additional baggage due to his controversial stance on the national anthem.
