49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Disputes Reports Of An Altercation With Aldon Smith

The NFL offseason has been a rough for San Francisco 49ers to say the least. With the exception of a few veterans, the 49ers roster looks much different than it did last season and continues to change.

Recently, former All-Pro linebacker Aldon Smith was released by the team after being arrested on DUI and hit-and-run charges. Shortly after the release was made public, a rumor began to circulate that there was an altercation between quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Smith.

According to Cam Inman of 49ers Hot Read, Kaepernick denies any altercation by claiming he doesn’t even own a Mercedes that was said to be vandalized by Smith:

Colin Kaepernick laughed off and shot down an online report that he fought with now-former teammate Aldon Smith over a woman.

“I don’t drive a Mercedes, let’s put it that way,” Kaepernick said after Friday’s practice.

Apparently, the alleged altercation was over Smith’s ex-girlfriend, according to TMZ Sports:

Aldon Smith got into a scrap with 49ers star Colin Kaepernick earlier this week … which may have been fueled by ongoing rumors about Smith’s ex-girlfriend and the QB.

Multiple Niner locker room sources tell TMZ Sports … Aldon and Colin had an altercation on the field during a practice on Tuesday, and “players had to pull them apart.” It’s interesting because there’s been a lot of Internet buzz Smith’s ex-gf is now with Kaep.

Whether the rumors are true or not, the situation remains the same in San Francisco with Smith out of a job and Kaepernick still the starting quarterback for the 49ers.

Smith is one in a long line of Pro Bowlers that have left the team in one form or another over the course of the offseason. Other notable names include Patrick Willis, Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree, Chris Borland, Mike Iupati and Chris Culliver. Even head coach Jim Harbaugh is no longer with the team after a mutual parting of the ways.

Needless to say, the 49ers will have their work cut out for them next season as the franchise may quickly become the mediocre team of old.

Currently, the 49ers are sporting long odds to come out of the NFC next season at 38/1, according to Only two other teams have worse odds to reach the Super Bowl in the NFC with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (55/1) and Washington Redskins (60/1) bringing up the rear..
