Brandon Marshall: I don't want Colin Kaepernick at New York Jets

Earlier today, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that Colin Kaepernick apparently wanted out of the San Francisco 49ers.

His preferred destination? The New York Jets. 

Brandon Marshall isn't too enthralled with that idea, however. The Jets star receiver said he doesn't want Kaepernick anywhere near the New York franchise.

In an appearance on ESPN with Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith, Marshall said that he thinks Kaepernick is good but that the Jets already have their franchise quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick.

“I don’t want Kaepernick,” Marshall said. “I think he’s good. My guy’s Fitz. It’s nothing against Kaepernick. … I have my quarterback, so I’m good.”

Marshall had an incredible first season at the Jets, forming an exceptional partnership with Fitzpatrick, who may have not even been the starter had Geno Smith's jaw not been broken in preseason by IK Enemkpali. 

The Jets have apparently let it be known that resigning FitzMagic is their top offseason priority, which will be news to Marshall's ears.

The 49ers, on the other hand, have until the start of April to decide if they want to keep Kaepernick at his current contract, which would see him get paid $11.9 million for the 2016 season. He seems perfect for a Chip Kelly offense, but it remains to be seen if the QB wants to stay in San Fran.
