The Chip Kelly era has well and truly arrived in Santa Clara as the new San Francisco 49ers head coach looks to try and improve the team's fortunes.

Kelly was appointed ahead of the upcoming season and he instantly arrived to a controversial situation surrounding quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Happy in an old home

Kaepernick made headlines by asking for a trade earlier this off-season increasing rumours about him becoming the newest addition to the Denver Broncos.

The trade however took off and Kaepernick remained at the 49ers looking more and more set to be challenging Blaine Gabbert for the starting role.

Kaepernick's situation has been quiet for several months now and with the start of team activities, San Francisco's number seven has been speaking about his future.

Despite asking for a trade, it looks like Kaepernick has once again found his home in San Francisco.

"At this point everything is football, I'm a 49er and excited to work with Chip and his coaching staff. I'm excited about what's to come." - Kap on his current situation

Kaepernick may now be set to battle for the starting job in San Francisco with many thinking that this could be a comeback year for him.

Kelly and Kaepernick appear to be a match made in heaven but only time will tell if it is enough to get the 49ers rolling once again.

A big mountain to climb

It will be tough for San Francisco this year as they find themselves in a very competitive NFC West division.

With competition from the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and LA Rams, the 49ers have it all to do if they wish to return to the Super Bowl anytime soon.
