San Francisco 49ers' HC Kyle Shanahan revealed as to why the 49ers aren't it the market to sign free agent QB Colin Kaepernick. Shanahan stated that he belives "Colin has a certain skill set that you can put a specific offense to it that he can be very successful in." He then added "When we first looked at it … that wasn't necessarily the direction I wanted to go. The type of offense I wanted to run was somewhat different and that’s why we went that type of direction." San Francisco instead signed veteran Brian Hoyer, who played in his system when both were in Cleveland. Although Hoyer's athletic abilities are lesser then Kaepernick's, Shanahan is a fan of his execution and willingness to learn. "He's obsessed with the game. He will learn your offense. He'll be able to execute and run it." Kyle runs a complicated offense that took 2016 MVP Matt Ryan more then a year to completely learn. It does however produce as the Falcons finished this past season with the number 1 offense.
