as the 49ers offseason program continues, the dominant storyline remains the future of colin kaepernick. the quarterback is at the center of heavy trade talks.and his side is reportedly negotiating with the denver broncos. until any deal is made, he's going to work in santa clara. mark carpenter spoke to some of kaepernick's teammates this afternoon and joins us with the latest-- mark, what's the vibe at niner headquarters? at face value-- it's one of the more awkward situations in sports. you show up to work at the facility of the team that could be trading you very soon. as of now, kaepernick.still a 49er and as far as we know,

still attending the offseason program. earlier today, some fellow 49ers gave some insight on the current mood at team headquarters. carlos hyde-49ers running back "we treat kaep the same way. he's a part of the team right now. he's in there every day. he's in the big room with us and we treat him like he's our teammate." and unless any move becomes a done deal, it'll stay that way. colin kaepernick's trade negotiation.has become a drive that's stalled midfield. the denver broncos reportedly want him, but not for 12-million dollars. recent reports say the two sides have made progress on a contract. yet if this isn't eventually resolved, then it's in danger of turning into a locker room distraction. navorro bowman-49ers linebacker
5:48 pm
"when the season rolls around i think it will be, but right now, guys are just focused on what we have to do to get to that point, i'm sure upstairs and colin are trying to get everything right, but the guys that's out there on the field putting the work in, that's the guys we are going to continue working with and trying to make better." quinton dial-49ers defensive lineman "i'm just gonna let the front office do that. we do understand that's a business side to this thing, but i'm gonna let them make the decisions and i'll just play football." if kaepernick makes it to 90- percent of the offseason workouts, then he's due a 400- thousand dollar bonus. incentive to simply show up until possibly cashing in somewhere else. some reports out of denver say the broncos don't mind waiting to have this play out. because kaepernick's value will be affected if the 49ers draft a quarterback in the first round. we'll continue to keep you updated both here and online on kron4-dot-com. record breaking heat today will be short lived. cool down and showers on the way. >> britteny: ugly museum 91. take a look at the thursday and dropping about 20 degrees down to 70 degrees. and then a major warmup a major cool down parts of san francisco and the high 80s by tomorrow back down to 70 cerone push the 97 and then by thursday down 20 degrees from 75
