Colin Kaepernick and 49ers reached agreement on 6-year extension worth over $100 million tying him to team through 2020, per sources.
That's a pretty substantial contract extension for a guy who struggles to spread the ball around to his receivers, but the 49ers must believe that he can be taught to improve. They must also believe that he is not guilty of sexual assault, a charge he is facing in the Florida court system. Kaepernick has the talent to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, but he is still very much a work in progress. The team has improved its receiving corps over the offseason and the offense should be a force to reckon with so long as Kaepernick continues to work towards improving some of his shortcomings.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kevin Garnett and the Timberwolves agree on a 2 year deal.
It is only fitting that the Timberwolves would resign their legend Kevin Garnett on the same day that they sign the new face of their franchise, the number one pick in the draft Karl-Anthony Towns. "I'm incredibly excited and rejuvenated to be part of this talented, committed team," said the 39-year old Garnett. You should expect to see him about 20 minutes per game this season but not really a fantasy relevant player anymore. Analysis: Drew Phelps
John Jaso has been activated off the disabled list.
It's been 10 weeks since Jaso went down with the wrist injury, but he's finally made his way back. The next few games should be a decent warm-up for him and he could be a decent pick-up for the second half. Look for him to work mostly as a DH, but manager Kevin Cash could move him around the field depending on need. Analysis: Howard Bender
