Packers Broadcast: How Colin Kaepernick's Contract Compares to Aaron Rodgers'

Cheesehead TV's own Aaron Nagler made an appearance Thursday on the Mike Heller Show on The Big 920 in Milwaukee and The Big 1070 in Madison to discuss the new contract signed by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and how it compares to the lucrative deal Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers received last offseason.

Nagler's interview occurs at almost exactly the 30-minute mark in the podcast.

Here's how Kaeperdick's contract compares to Rodgers. Rodges actually plays to the level that he's paid. Kaeperdick will not. Like all running QB's, he will slowly fade away, playing average level at best. And then the Niners won't be able to resign players like Crabree, Aldon Smith, Eric Reid, Utipai, among other young players of theirs. Donte Whitner was just the first.

I can NOT stress enough just how beneficial this will be to the Packers (and every other team for that matter) in the long run! It's like watching the Ravens overpay Joe Flacco! THEY SUCK!!!

Kaepernick's contract is much more favorable to San Fran than some of the titles to articles imply. There is low front end cash flow, $12 million is tied to actual playing time and team success, another $12 million is tied to active roster bonuses, and his injury guarantees vest on April 1 of each year. The fully guaranteed money initially only amounts to $12.973. One stat: SF can cut Kaepernick after this season (the first on this contract) and absorb only a $9.8 million dead money hit. In comparison, the dead money in Rodgers' contract after the first season was $45.6 million. There is no real comparison between Kaepernick's contract and Rodgers' contract unless Kaepernick remains healthy and dynamic throughout the life of his contract.

Kaepernick's cap number is only $3.76 for the upcoming season but increases to $17 million in 2015, so the days of San Fran getting cheap quarterbacking are almost over.

I read some of the Seattle papers, but the best source on Kaepernicks' contract that I found was at over the in the article noted below:
