We’ve got good news for you if you’re a Bruno Mars fans and Colin Kaepernick fan and/or haters. First the latest word on Mr. Mars. The singing and dancing machine has just dropped a new video for his latest single “That’s What I Like.”
If you haven’t heard, the ditty is his second Top 5 Billboard Hot 100 single from his certified platinum album, 24K Magic. “That’s What I Like” is also Bruno’s first #1 single on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart and his 14th Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 to date.
As you can see in the video and story above, there’s no doubt that Bruno Mars has got it goin’ on. We don’t think we can say the say the same thing about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

After this past year of protesting the national anthem, it looks like Kaepernick’s days with the 49ers might be over. One reason we’re saying that is because Kap’s has new agents and those representatives will help him navigate free agency for the first time in his six-year career.
As you’ve probably already figured out, Kaepernick will opt out of the final year of his contract, which will place him on the open market when free agency begins March 9, the NFL Network reported. After kicking XAM Sports to the curb, Kaepernick is now represented by Jeff Nalley and Sean Kiernan.
The bottom line is that the 29-year-old QB can officially opt out as early as Thursday (03-02-17). The move was expected given his recent performance and scheduled $14.5 million base salary in 2017. The 49ers would have likely released Kaepernick if he didn’t opt out.
Meanwhile, the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that just last week, he met with 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan at the team facility. All parties left excited after they visited in his office or so says Lynch.
And all parties must keep their options open. It’s not known how much interest Kaepernick will attract in free agency and the 49ers don’t have many options on their current roster. Their other three quarterbacks, Blaine Gabbert, Christian Ponder and Thad Lewis, are scheduled to become free agents.
The 49ers have been expected to explore trading for Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins and New England quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The problem is however, Washington and New England are not looking to part with their QBs, according to national reports.
