But 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took wage demands to a totally different level this week after he reportedly asked for $18 million a year, an increase of $17,026,234 on his current salary.

Kaepernick has been the 49ers starting quarterback for just one full season but has consistently put up good passing numbers.
He is also one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL when he gets out of the pocket, with his blistering pace and impressive strength among his top attributes:
If San Francisco refuse to bow to Kaepernick’s demands they may see their star-man leave as a free agent after next season, and there would be plenty of takers.
So really it’s no great surprise that Kaepernick wants to increase his reported $973,766 yearly salary, but even for a guy as talented as the 26-year-old, $18 million sounds a tad excessive…
