Three teams are involved in trade talks with the 49ers to acquire quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a league source told CSNBayArea.com on Thursday morning.
The 49ers on Tuesday retained the contract rights to linebacker Michael Wilhoite and guard Jordan Devey with one-year tenders.
The 49ers declined to use the franchise tag designation for the fourth consecutive year.
The Miami Dolphins on Tuesday placed the transition tag on defensive end Olivier Vernon, which provides interested teams the opportunity to negotiate with him.
