SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have agreed to restructure his contract, voiding the last four years, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan.

The restructuring turns his contract into a one-year deal with a player option for next year, according to ESPN sources.

49ers Vice President of Communications Bob Lange confirmed the contract restructuring to KRON4 but did not confirm the exact details. Agents usually share that information, Lange said.

49ers head coach Chip Kelly announced Kaepernick will start on Sunday in Buffalo against the Bills.

KRON4’s Gary Radnich and Mark Carpenter will have more during KRON4 News at 5, 6, 8, and 11.
