San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he hasn’t made any decisions about his future with the 49ers, but he’s still putting his Silicon Valley home up for sale. Kaepernick -- who’s gained more attention for his refusal to stand for the playing of the national anthem, than for his performance on the field this season -- is offering his gated, four-bedroom, six-bath house in San Jose’s upscale Silver Creek neighborhood for $2,895,000.

According to its listing, the custom built 4,569 square foot home on a secluded lot, offers “breathtaking views and complete privacy for the buyer who is looking to enjoy the tranquil life in the midst of the Silicon Valley.” Inside, there’s a large office, with a separate movie/entertainment room, soaring ceilings on the first level, and more than $300,000 worth of remodeling touches throughout the house.

Home offers views across Silicon Valley

Outside, the home offers a spacious backyard with views across the Silicon Valley, as well as a swimming pool, complete with a waterfall, and a jacuzzi. In the front of the home, there’s a private driveway, with an electronic gate and camera security system.

Kaepernick is offering his home for sale during an especially rough year in his NFL career, where he’s been lambasted for this national anthem protest, but has also been benched for part of what has been an horrific season for both him and the 49ers. Kaepernick was the starting quarterback in last Sunday’s game, but was pulled as he and the 49ers couldn’t mount any sort of an offense on a snowy Chicago day in a 26-6 loss against the Bears.

With their only win coming in the first game of the season, the 49ers have now lost eleven in a row and are firmly in last place in the NFC West division with a record of 1-11. Kaepernick’s performance has been equally as dismal, where his 54.5 percent completion rate is last among regular starting quarterbacks.

So besides the poor play of both him and the team, the status of Kaepernick’s contract adds to the uncertainty of his future with the 49ers.

Has option to opt out of contract

Kaepernick has the option to opt out of his contract once this abysmal season is over, but in an interview this week he declined to comment on the status of his contract, saying he would make a decision after the season is over.

And, after media reports that he’s purchased a condo in Manhattan, Kaepernick declined to comment if he’s had a discussion with the New York Jets, instead saying he’s focused on this weekend’s game against the Jets.

“What my focus is right now is getting ready for the New York Jets this week,” he told a gathering of reporters on Tuesday, in an interview that was posted on the 49ers website, “There’s no conversations with other teams, anything like that.”
